What Meeting Planners Are Saying...
"We recently held a 4-day corporate program event at the Chaminade for 40 employees and were extremely happy with the service and our stay. The meeting facilities perfectly suited our needs and the staff was always on top of things - from AV needs to food & beverage, and everything in between. Many of our attendees commented on how the week felt more like a retreat than a business meeting, which is exactly what we were going for! The location is perfect to get away from the day to day craziness and combined with the top notch service, really allows attendees to focus. Would definitely return in the future and highly recommend to others with business/meeting needs!"

"Thank you very much for your help making our forum a great success!"
We could not have pulled off the event without help from you and your staff.We surveyed our attending grantees, and they all agreed that the location was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the meeting space worked very well for our gathering. Our goal for this event was to create a safe and comfortable space for our grantees, where they could come together, learn from each other, and engage in meaningful conversations about moving forward in our mission to help youth thrive. And thanks to you and your team, we achieved our goal. One of our grantees e-mailed us and expressed: “The space was amazing, and my colleagues and I all left with the understanding that we were a part of something bigger that can really make a difference in young people's lives.” We couldn’t have asked for a better, or more encouraging message from our grantees. Thank you again for all your help."
