  • What a gift to be dealing with people who are focused on conferences for professionals. I had very little explaining to do. Couldn't have asked for better service, anticipation of needs and most of all, flexibility to change rooms to accommodate the group better. There were rave reviews from many participants...a wonderful venue with great friendly service. Waltham Woods is a model of excellence for professional meetings.
