What kind of a housekeeping tipper are you?
 
My DH and I don't exactly agree on this. What kind of a tipper are you?

tiger4me2 01-14-2013 10:02 AM

I tip every day the same amount maybe first day I tip not as much as during. If the service was really bad I tip less and if really bad I call and ask why certain things wasn't taken care of ex clean glasses & bath tub still dirty etc. I usually get the same housekeeper during the week & I know my room will be perfect and when she is not there when I leave I leave a larger tip before she leaves for her day off. At times the weekend staff can be lacking but that not always the case. They do perform a service & should be left something. And like the towel animals but don't expect them nor do I get upset if I don'y get them lol

I don't tip housekeeping. That's just not something that is done where I come from

wiigirl 01-14-2013 10:27 AM

I usually just tip at the end on the stay.

AJKMOM 01-14-2013 10:29 AM

I leave $1 per person, per night of stay.

Me too. Too many years of business travel to change my practice now. Also tip separately any time someone helps with a special project, delivers something to the room, etc.

We don't normally tip housekeeping since its considered a non-tipped position at WDW. If we request something special then we do tip.

Housekeeping at WDW is not considered to be a tippable position as far as Disney is concerned. Other areas are. Do I tip? Sometimes. If I'm staying in a regular room, not DVC, and if my room is maintained very well, then I will tip. But, that will be on a daily basis. When you tip at the end of the stay, you may be tipping someone that has been in your room just one or two times. I prefer to tip in the morning if the service the day before was exceptional. We are very tidy....I even straighten the beds each morning. I hang my used towels up so as to conserve water/energy. So, not much to be done in my room. BUT...I always come back to fresh towels!!! I do want my soap/shampoo restocked though. And maybe the bathroom floor wiped down.
When staying DVC, I seldom tip. They come in one time...take out the trash and replace the towels. So, no...I don't think they need to be tipped for that small service.

Overall, I tend to not tip. I refuse to be held hostage by housekeepers expecting tips. My room isn't in good condition?? Not only don't I tip, I talk to housekeeping management.

Well said!

I voted "I tip differently" because while we don't tip everyday, we DO tip on the days we choose to have houskeeping. We don't require them to clean everyday, so we put the do not disturb sign out and they leave towels at the door. We are not the type of people who need a freshly made bed everyday and we are not messy, so housekeeping isn't necessary every single day for us. :goodvibes

ETA: When we tip, we do it the morning of to ensure that the person getting the tip is the person doing the work. If we ever have an unsatisfactory result, I am sure we would make a call, but so far, our houskeepers at POP have been great.

Caseheidi 01-14-2013 11:34 AM

We tip daily, $3-5, depending on day before. I always worry if we wait to tip til end of stay, the tip could go to someone who is cleaning our room for the first time.

We have done all these things, we have never had a problem with housekeeping at Disney, thank goodness.

When we are in a non-DVC room we tip in the morning.

We mostly only stay DVC now and we do not tip anymore, DH says we pay our yearly dues and that is enough. I am glad housekeeping doesn't come everyday with DVC, We like our privacy. Honestly, with DVC, I wash our towels daily and I clean the bathroom when we get there and I wash the dishes because I know they are clean, we only need trash service during our stay. If they left Trash Bags we wouldn't need that DH takes the trash out too.

I don't mind cleaning up after the family on vacation, I just don't want to cook.
