11 July 2012 Valet Parking and Door Operations for the Beverly Hills Montage
WOW, what exciting week it has been! On Sunday July 1st, Towne Park commenced full valet and door operation at the Montage Beverly Hills Hotel. We are also providing curbside valet service to the Bouchon Bistro, a renowned French restaurant adjacent to the hotel that averages over 220 daily covers.
With such high profile guests visiting its properties, The Montage brand is extremely exclusive as to who they hire, who they work with and where they operate. This is the first time the Montage brand has outsourced their parking operations, and their decision to partner with Towne Park speaks volumes to the reputation we, as Towne Park Nation, have built.
