This question already has an answer here:

I grew up outside the US, and in our culture, tipping almost never ever happens.

I am aware that when eating at a restaurant in the US, you are expected to tip between 15-20%.

When I stay in a hotel in the US, am I expected to tip the housekeeping? Why or why not?

  • Wikitravel lists 4-5$/day, a travel guide of mine that is a bit older lists USD 2/night. – DCTLib May 7 '18 at 10:53

Many people don't tip at all in hotels, others give a single dollar a day. Of course, the people cleaning your room don't get a lot of pay, and love to see tips, but there is no strong obligation like in full service restaurants.
