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....)

They do (almost) whatever you ask of them. And treat them well... trust me, they’re taking notes (same of four seasons and ritz, too)

Hi I have a real question that is going to cause a lot of controversy but it gets me so upset every time this happens. In casting and director searching, the request is always “non-white and female if possible”. It’s like I get more ‘brownie points’ for the most diverse person I can find. I don’t remember the last time I posted a casting request and was allowed to ask for white applicants. Isn’t this reverse discrimination? This can’t be the answer to equality. Am I crazy or unfair??
