I see a plus & minus to the auto tipping. On the plus side the advantage is to the staffs getting at least 'minimum' grats from people who are NOT tippers! On the minus it does take away the personal feature of handing the envelopes out in person on the last night. BUT you have a choice to have the auto grats adjusted off your account and do your own tipping, or adjust them upward if you prefer. I do like the ease of having all my charges on the S & S account, and if I feel a staff member went 'above and beyond' I will give a little extra in way of cash besides the auto grats.
