Has anyone been asked to sign a $0.00 check in the lounge? This happened to me for the first time today (at a Westin). Guess they are looking for tips from the cashless?

Never at the lounge, but often at the hotel breakfast place when I already have it included.

Yes for tip. Most firms reimburse tipping at hotels (Accenture definitely does) so no need to be stingy about it

I gave them $5 and will probably expense it as breakfast but it seemed a bit tacky (especially since they did not do anything but bring me the check - I grabbed my food and coffee myself and sat down).
