There was a story on a local news show (Boston Area) this week about tipping. The Seaport Hotel in Boston, has adopted a NO TIPPING policy!! You may think that the prices were raised to make up the difference, that wasn't mentioned in the story so I am not sure if that is the case, but I looked at thier web page and found out that guests under 17 stay free with parents. So I guess the management of this upscale hotel doesn't agree that people with teens should "just stay home".
I can't imagine that this is the only hotel in tha country that is trying out this policy.
