My Husband & I have booked to stay in St Regis (Essex House) during 1st week in Dec (Xmas shopping trip & general siteseeing) We have never visited New York before and decide to treat ourselves to the St Regis level as it sounded really special - I mean they even have a butler on each floor!
However in regard to the butler I have a question - I just wondered what is the correct etiquette in regard to tipping the butler?
I assumed it may be more 'correct' to tip him at the end of our stay rather than tipping him whenever he provides a service (as I would with any other hotel employee such as bell boy, doorman etc) -
Have any of you stayed there before and if so what are your thoughts on tipping the butler?
Thanks in advance for your replies
