Back Bay businesswoman used valet spot of her own

Other drivers circle the block in frustration as they look for parking in the Back Bay, but not Lisa Saunders. The businesswoman, part of the family that owned the Park Plaza Hotel for decades, always had a prime city-owned parking spot waiting for her black Cadillac right in front of her office at 20 Park Plaza.

Saunders’ parking space was marked “tow zone” and “valet parking only,” but city parking enforcement officers didn’t write a ticket for Saunders’ vehicle even when she left it there all day. In fact, Lisa Saunders appears to be the only person in Boston who had a valet parking spot for her own personal use.
