I've never stayed at hotels often enough in the past to learn I should have left tips, so I feel kind of bad about that. I do leave tips for everyone else though...

I've never stayed at a hotel by myself. Only as a kid with my family.

In general, I try to tip at every possible opportunity, if I like the service. (If I don't like the service, I still might tip, but I'll tip something < 15%, so that the person getting the tip knows I wasn't pleased.) My reasoning is, if you want good service, people have to want to give you good service, and tipping well is a good reward for those who do. I guess it wouldn't matter as much to me if I knew I was never going to use that service again, but I don't really feel safe making assumptions like that.

Plus, to be frank, in a lot of situations (taxis, for instance) it's more of a big deal to give good service to someone in a wheelchair, so I like to reward people who don't give me an attitude.)

As for tipping, I recently read somewhere that hotel cleaners are least often tipped. Maybe because they are unseen? I stay in a hotel once or twice a year..and usually it is with Kim, when we go to a conference. We always leave a tip in the room before we leave. And I always make an effort to not leave the room totally trashed. Yes, I know it is their JOB to clean the room...but I also know that they have X number of rooms they must clean each day. So what I mean by not leaving it trashed..is that I will make sure garbage has made it to the trash cans...and I return the used towels to the bathroom.

Different cultures have different conventions. In England it's acceptable to tip a cab driver, the person who delivers the paper to your door (once a year, at Christmas), and waiters in a restaurant (though not a café, bar or fast food outlet of any description). Tipping any member of staff in an hotel would be considered an affectation of the über-rich. I suspect tipping one's steward on a liner is still de rigeur though that experience has, to date, eluded me.

Oh. And one's barber. Invariably. Just as one can never tell him one's hair has been cut poorly when the mirror is presented - some things are simply never done.
