tipping is a very personal thing, so how much one tips is up to the individual: here is what we do: $1.00 a day per person for the housekeeper: $2 for the valet, when he/she brings the car and the taxi driver, it depends. We usually just round it up: like the taxi ride is $27.00 we give the driver $30 or $22.00, $25.00, a lot depends on how much they do, other than the driving: do they help with luggage, do they hold doors open, etc. If we use a van for say service from the airport to the car rental place or from the hotel to the airport, we usually tip about $1 per bag, they handle. If there are no bags, except what we are handling (rare) we give them a couple of $$s.

I'd agree - we fregquently travel to Waikiki. While most of the hotels on the strip have self-parking, it is often difficult to find a spot in the garage.
