Do you tip a valet when you have a monthly parking space? In Chicago, if that matters.

I'm pricing monthly parking options near my office in the Chicago Loop. Most garage spaces are 260-330 per month, but I've found a couple of valet garages that are 220 per month. That would be a money saver, but would my savings be eaten up by tips?
I've always tipped valets at garages when parking for just a few hours, but I wondered whether there is also an expectation that I would tip if I have a monthly space.
(Also, if you know of a cheaper parking option in the northwest corner of the Loop, I'm all ears.)
