Does anyone tip hotel front desk ppl? I stay at the same hotel & have gotten to know some of the staff - they give me upgrades sometimes! I’m just a little shy about slipping a bill over. Advice?

Early in my career I worked at a hotel. I had s couple of regular guests that I booked there rooms and made sure when possible they were in good rooms. If you don’t want to slip a bill over, just write a thank you note and put it in there. It will look just like that to their colleagues It will be very much appreciated and unexpected.

Maybe you could bring them a pastry or something! I know they work long hours and might not always remember to bring food with them
