Know who and how much to tip when you arrive at the hotel

The doorman may assist you with your luggage, for which you may tip $1-$2 for their assistance. When checking in, it is not customary to offer a tip to the front desk. If the bellman assists in carrying luggage to your room, he should receive $1-$2 per bag. If the hotel valet hails you a cab, it’s $1-$2 for their attention.
