      Otherwise I tend to go with 15% as a standard and go up or down based on level of service.

      I would include a little extra in your budget for further tips and then award them - or not- as you feel is warrented.

      I think I saw a really good idea in another thread where a bride made up cards with the extra tips in them and handed them out - or not- as needed.

      hope that helps!

          its definatly not required to tip extra but you always want to reward someone for their good service (above and beyond). Its best to carry alot of $1 bills - tip your doorman, maids, room service and bartenders.... they will remember you throughout your stay and make it that much better for you. A little bit goes along way!
