Meet Minneapolis, Convention and Visitors Association has recognized George Glover as a “Hospitality Hero” award winner.

Glover, who is a doorman at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center, has worked at the property for over 30 years, serving the Minneapolis community since 1987. Through his work, Glover is known for going above and beyond his daily responsibilities to care for guests, even remembering guests' names despite years between visits. Glover is also frequently mentioned for his outstanding work in hotel guest comments. 

Glover was nominated by his colleagues and selected as a first quarter award recipient of 2018 as a member of the Minneapolis hospitality community who has made valuable contributions to the image and culture of Minneapolis through outstanding hospitality and service.

“George Glover is an institution in Minneapolis,” said Shannon. “He is revered by guests and locals alike, his service to our company and the Minneapolis hospitality industry over nearly three decades has borne witness to this fact," said Jody Shannon, Director of HR at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center in a recent release from Meet Minneaoplis.

“He ‘owns’ his business of being the best doorman in the city … locals know him by name, guests are warmed by his compassion and his team is proud to work by his side.”

This week, hundreds of local young professionals will have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to escape the stresses and responsibilities of their day to day lives, no paid time off or carry-on needed. For those strapped with all-too-common student loan debt, SoFi, a national personal financial services agency focused in lending and wealth management, will be hosting Debt after Dark—on them.

 

On Saturday, June 16, thousands ignored the rain and scorching heat to check out the Walker Art Center’s 20th annual Rock the Garden music festival. As the local beer flowed, fans swarmed the museum’s hillside and iconic sculpture garden to soak in a diverse lineup of local and international acts including headliner Father John Misty, Feist, Chastity Brown, Kamasi Washington and P.O.S. (and a surprise guest appearance from Current DJ Mark Wheat). But what exactly goes into planning the Walker’s biggest event of the year?

 

Food trucks may be mobile, but they aren’t going anywhere, since their popularity only seems to grow with each season. A New Jersey hotel is getting in on the fun! Along with over 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, Embassy Suites by Hilton in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, offers the Grain & Cane “Gastro Truck” as a fun option for a mid-meeting break or post-event dining option.
