Greate Space, Clean. Adina was clear and professional The Room had many features for playing Audio off the speakers and recording/zoom abilities that I did not use this time around but I can see how they will be great for future booking ideas.

We've used this conference room on several occasions and have been very happy with the experience. Jeff is always friendly and quick to respond if I have questions regarding the booking. It's a secure building in a safe neighborhood, the conference room has always been clean and well-maintained, and the manager of to co-working space is very welcoming. I do wish it wasn't permit parking on the street, but there's plenty of free street parking on the side streets. I highly recommend this space, and working with Jeff is a pleasure.
