When it comes to tipping the maid, there is always a bit of confusion about where to put the tip. Do you leave it on the nightstand or the desk? Or perhaps you leave it on the dresser or the minibar?

At the just-opened Ace Hotel Los Angeles, there is no confusion about where your dollar bills go. On the desk atop the stationary is a little yellow envelope with the words "MAID TIP stamped in red. And there you go.

While we doubt luxury hotels would ever consider adopting this sort of hint for guests (it's probably considered too "vulgar"), we do think it could work at lots of other boutiquey hotels. But if this becomes a hotel standard, then we best remember to bring dollar bills with us. We'll feel pretty sheepish leaving that envelope empty. Wonder if they take credit cards?

Maid Tips

I like the idea of the little envelope for the maid it reminds me to leave something.  As getting ready to check-out you're in such a hurry that I forget sometimes.When at a resort that has "Resort Fees" of $20 per day I feel that the maid tip should be considered part of that fee.  Does anyone know if any of the fee goes to housekeeping?
