Renee’s Royal Valet – Limos, Coaches, & Trolleys was awarded  “Best Transportation” last night from Minnesota Meetings + Events at their 10th annual Readers Choice Awards at The Cowles Center for Dance & The Performing Arts.  The readers of the magazine search for the best suppliers, venues, and services in the events industry throughout the state and Renee’s was honored to be recognized as “best of the best” in the transportation category.

Minnesota Meeting + Events Magazine reported: “I voted for Renee’s Royal Valet not only because they provide great service,” says Bree Kompelien, private event manager for Parasole at the W Hotel, of the Best Transportation winner.  “Their team is professional, friendly and awesome to work with.”  This is the first Readers’ Choice win for Renee’s Royal Valet, a service-focused company founded in 1992.  Vehicles in Renee’s fleet range from subdued and elegant to attention-grabbing, including a stretch Lincoln Town Car, a San Francisco-style trolley (with modern upgrades) and a custom-built H2 Hummer limousine with flat-screen televisions.
