Minuteman Starts off Spring with a New Hotel!

April 14th, 2014 by Stephanie Bixeman

Minuteman welcomes our latest hotel property in Portland-the Residence Inn by Marriott! April 11th marked the opening date for the newest hotel in Portland’s beautifully-blooming Pearl District. Located at 1150 NW 9th Ave in Portland, the six-story, 233 room hotel provides plenty of room for its guests. Finding a spot for a meeting should be easy with the hotel’s 4,100 sq. feet of conference space!

Minuteman Parking is excited to be providing the extended-stay Residence Inn’s 24-hr valet service to ensure a most pleasant greeting upon arrival, and send-off for departure. No need to worry about your car as there are plenty of galleries, eateries, and cultural institutions within walking distance. We are proud to add this hotel to our growing list of clients in the Portland area. Welcome to the Minuteman family!

Minuteman was proud to attend the 9th Annual “Friends of Children’s Hospital” Charity Poker Tournament hosted at the Courtyard Bellevue Downtown in Bellevue, WA. All proceeds from the event went to benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital. The event was organized as part of Seattle Marriott’s ongoing efforts to support the Children’s Hospital. We are always happy to stand by our partners at Marriott and play for a good cause.

Our very own Account Manager, Tu Sam, made it to the final poker table at this past weekend’s event! Congrats Tu! Hope you had a fun night!

Minuteman was extremely honored to help provide valet parking services at the Academy Awards this year! We had so much fun helping out our friends over at VPS with this extraordinary event. Sunday evening was filled with lots of celebrities and swanky cars! Owners Tony Policella of VPS and Chris Fox of Minuteman Parking paired up to help create a flawless parking operation for the stars. What a great way to join forces and do what we do best!

If you watched the awards, you can imagine how much fun we had! Which movie or actor would have won your vote???

Outstanding Care and Service

December 3rd, 2013 by Kelly Harris

Minuteman’s Account Manager, Miguel Calderon, received special recognition at one of our healthcare accounts this quarter! Miguel oversees Minuteman’s parking operation at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, CA. Each quarter the Medical Center puts out a Recognition Summary listing all the employees, volunteers, and physicians who have received expressions of gratitude from patients and visitors. Miguel was listed for outstanding care and service, and we couldn’t be more proud of him!

Minuteman was awarded the contract with Providence St. Joseph earlier this year, providing valet and self-parking services. We look forward to continuing a shining relationship with Providence Health & Services! Keep up the great work, Miguel!
