Here is a Tip For You Regarding Room Service
If you order a meal in a restaurant and experience excellent service, you may be compelled to leave a sizeable gratuity in appreciation — perhaps up to as much as 20% of the total bill for your meal.
How much would you tip a waiter or waitress if they simply delivered your meal to your table and then you never saw them again?
This scenario is why FlyerTalk member BadJelly wonders in the Room Service Tip thread “In the in room dining situation, the meal is dropped off and that is the end of the server. Why is the expectation that the percentage is going to be as high?” when reading about the experience of FlyerTalk member FindMeTravel, who was automatically charged a 22% gratuity when ordering room service.
