Tipping

  • Hotel doorman: $1 for hailing a cab
  • Porters and bellhops: $1–$2 per bag
  • Maids: $1–$2 per day of your visit, or as much as $5 per day
  • Waitstaff and bartenders: 15–20 percent of total bill
  • Taxi drivers: 15–20 percent of total fare
  • Tips for other service personnel, such as theater ushers, tour guides and coat-check staff, are always appreciated.

One more thing: if you’re having drinks at a bar, bartenders typically expect a $1 tip for every drink they serve you. Later on, when the bar gets crowded, you’ll be glad that the bartender remembers you!
