Best 4 Free Private Meeting Spaces in Prescott
by Melanie Banayat
If you’re NOT a non-profit, nothing is quite as difficult and nuanced as finding free meeting space in Prescott. Most people end up meeting in café’s and restaurants, which means everyone feels obligated to buy something every single time you meet.
By and large, meeting rooms in Prescott cost money. So I set out to find meeting rooms that have an almost impossible set of criteria:
2) Responsive to inquiries
3) Good availability and few restrictions on use?
I found a few and I want everyone to know about them, so you can go forth and MEET.
There are actually some pretty good options.
