Shawn N. booked a workshop for 20 people
This is a great space for small workshops. The natural lighting and the surrounding environment makes the day wonderful. Attendees enjoyed the space as well and drive up to Chabot Science Center is heavenly.
Robyn I. booked an off-site for 25 people
This room was great! Nice view of outside with all of the trees. Everyone at the Chabot Space Center was wonderful and very helpful. We will definitely book this meeting room in the future.
Lucy N. booked an off-site for 10 people
We held our board strategy retreat here and it was an excellent venue. Samantha communicated well throughout - making sure we had everything we needed to make the day a success. The large room had ample space for moving around between tables. We used a caterer that has a good relationship with the Chabot Center and there were no hiccups. Onsite parking was also very easyI I would definitely recommend them!
