Reply To: Hotel Cleaning Staff – To Tip or Not?

Back to Forum


I can entirely understand an hour after check out, but a mid-stay clean should not take more than 30mins max; I would be appalled if I left such a mess that an hour might be necessary – even in some of largest suites in which I have stayed.

As I set out above, I rarely tip housekeeping staff, but would hope to leave my room in a condition which left them able to perform their duties quickly and efficiently.

Leaving an hour’s worth of mess is extraordinary and could seriously affect a housekeeper’s ability to complete his/her expected tasks that day.
