We loved the space and the staff were so accommodating to our needs! Debbie was a star and she really helped us sort everything we needed! We had just the right amount of space we needed with additional space for teas and coffees in the foyer. Thanks so much for having us!

The wifi didn't really hold out for the event we hosted.
