Though I am a regular traveler, I'm never quite sure of how and when to tip a hotel concierge for dinner/show/sightseeing reservations or assistance. Do you tip at the end of your stay, at the time each request is made, or after each request is fulfilled? To complicate matters further, do you deliver the gratuity to the "Concierge Desk" or do you make it a point to get the name of the concierge who handled your request and direct the tip to him/her specifically? Lastly, although tipping is personal and discretionary, I usually give $5 or $10 for a routine dinner reservation...I assume this is satisfactory unless some special service was performed. I'd appreciate the thoughts/advise of seasoned travelers.
