I received this information from Assembly Task Force Coordinator Paul Holt: THIS IS GREAT INFORMATION:

Some asked about information on “tipping” at the International Assembly. The Emily Post Institute offers the following guidelines on tipping:

Restaurant wait service (sit down) 15-20% pre-tax

Restaurant wait service (buffet) 10%

Restroom Attendant $0.50 – $3.00, depending on service

Valet $2.00 to $5.00

Skycap $2.00 first bag, $1.00 per additional bag

Doorman $1.00 to $2.00 for carrying luggage
$1.00 to $2.00 for hailing cab
$1.00 to $4.00 for going beyond the call of duty

Bellhop $2.00 for the first bag; $1.00 per additional bag

Housekeeper $2.00 to $5.00 per day, left daily

Concierge $5.00 for tickets or reservations, $10.00 if hard to get; no need to tip for answering questions

Taxi Driver 15% plus and extra $1.00 to $2.00 if helped with bags

These are only suggestions, but we do want to reward those who serve us well.

Note: There are “panhandlers” on the streets of Nashville. The City of Nashville does ask that money not be given to panhandlers.
