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.”
