Deck655 is also available for rent; for more details, please visit deck655.com. || COVID-19 Policies || Face coverings are required for unvaccinated individuals and recommended for all as a courtesy to others in common areas of the building. Please remember to wash hands frequently, avoid close contact with others, and stay home if you feel sick or have a fever. Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the building. iQ Smart Center has been treated with MicroShield 360, an anti-microbial coating that kills pathogens and prevents them from living on treated surfaces (as well as the lobby, restrooms, and elevator cabs and call buttons). Our janitorial team cleans and disinfects the space before and after each reservation with products that meet the CDC’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Lani G. booked a new hire training for 5 people
Great communication from Rachel, Jeff (parking), and the staff leading up to the event (and throughout!). We were given the room next door (Edison) instead, and it worked out perfectly for our new hire orientation. Thank you for making this so easy for us—I'd be happy to recommend the space to others.
Chris S. booked an off-site for 20 people
Very nice meeting area. The patterned glass walls don't allow for complete privacy but unless your meeting involves quite sensitive information it's not a problem. Excellent technology that worked well. Host Rachel was helpful and very easy to work with. The nice location in downtown San Diego is also its only downside as you and your attendees must deal with the typical downtown parking issues -- limited and expensive parking. Will definitely be back if the need arises again.
Chris R. booked a workshop for 51 people
I was really excited to hold my event in this space...its has a beautiful layout and technology. But it was very stressful when half the screens and the sound didn't work the day of the event and was forced to move all the desks to one side of the room last minute. Communication with the staff was good, but there was no resolution for the tech issues for the event.

Jane P. booked a team meeting for 12 people
Thank you peerspace. This event and venue was flawless. The Tesla room was perfect for our team event of 14 people. From the super friendly security host to the AV system which was perfect for team presentations, to the location of the coffee shop right outside the room, everything worked out. Another plus is that the meeting location is walking distance to great restaurants and close vicinity to the hotels.

This conference room couldn't have been any easier to throw an event in. The location was great and was super easy to book.
