Can someone offer some advice about tipping ie. who to tip and how much. We come from Norway, a country where tipping is practically non-existent but we understand it is a large part of the culture in the US. I visited Miami about 12 years ago and got into a bit of a pickle with all the tipping, we had not budgeted for it and we found it very difficult to know if we were under-tipping.
I guess the tipping situation depends on where you are staying and what services you use. We are staying at very budget places and 4 star accomodation so any advice is very welcome.
In a 4 star accomodation who is there to tip and how much is normal and how often (i.e everytime a doorperson opens the door for you) Sorry if this question sounds stupid.
