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.
