I’m spending some of my Bonvoy points to stay at a luxury hotel for the first time ever.

What am I supposed to tip people there? This place even has a butler service - I’m not even sure what they do.

Give him a bottle of desi daru

For a week long stay, we used ours for dinner and activities reservations, garment pressing, and unpacking / packing service. We tipped $20 a day. Handed our butler an envelope on our last day.
(Definitely use the unpacking service - it’s awesome. SO and I were skeptical at first, but recently used it, went for lunch, and came back to this....)
