Flash Raffle #5: $600 of Relaxation & Recharging from Breather

“Get out and take a breather!” That advice holds much more weight than it once did. Imagine escaping to an expertly designed oasis to work with your team. Now, corporate teams are itching to leave the monotony of everyday offices in favor of something much better for private all-day meetings, offsites, small events, or even solo crunch time. A change of scenery is good for the soul and the to-do list.

Breather heeded that call, and they’re dishing out prizes for the fifth and final Flash Raffle of Admin Week 2017!

The Price of Picking Through Possibilities

AllStar Sarah Schraer working

Breather knows how essential it is to find productive offsite venues for your team. And you know that this isn’t always an easy feat, even with a slew of rentable options posted online. The problem with said options? You never know what you’re going to get. Reality may look nothing like the photos, the amenities you need are hidden behind a curtain of fees, and your private rooms aren’t actually private. Ugh.

A Breath of Fresh Air for Offsite Bookings

Admingling in Breather Space

Hashing out Ninja discussions at a Breather space for Admingling in San Francisco.

Inhale for five seconds, then exhale for 10, ‘cause Breather is different in the best way possible. Breather designs, outfits, and manages ALL their spaces so you’re guaranteed a consistent experience with all the must-have equipment—like whiteboards, free Wi-Fi, chargers, and more—waiting for you on site.

Food and beverage minimums, mandated vendor list, and spotty Wi-Fi? Breather nixed all of that, so you can focus on flexibility and productivity without jumping through the usual hoops. Then, whether you’re looking to set up your team for four hours or four days, you can find and book stylish workspaces with a few clicks. Since the collection of spaces is already in 10 major cities—and growing all the time—you have a reliable go-to whether you’re in New York City or Los Angeles.

Breather for Business comes with dedicated account management and advanced booking tools. We’re talking perks like a centralized billing dashboard—so it’s easy for your co-workers to reserve rooms, and it’s just as simple for you to see who’s using what and how often, come expense report time.

“Breather for Business has been an incredible resource for booking gorgeous and flexible meeting spaces in some of the most difficult regions of the country. Having a dedicated account manager alongside rent-by-the-hour options, Breather has turned out to be a great addition to our fast-paced meeting booking needs.” – Lynn W., Executive Administrator in Boston

Breather for Business’ concierge services can give you a leg up when it comes to finding and snagging the right space for your needs, as Breather reserves some sites exclusively for members who get priority booking windows.

    I really love the space in Palo Alto.

  2. Karen Wilkinson
     

    If our professional org. annual conferences are in any of these cities, I would consider booking a space for a meet-up.

  3. Jenn Maitland
     

    I would take my team to Los Angeles for a team meeting. I wish they had locations in Orange County though.

  9. Marisol Lara
     

    My fellow admin was the winner of the giant wine bottle, but when her number was called, she was in the ladies room – so the next person got it! G’ah!
    Breather would be something we could consider for offsite meetings.

  10. Maureen
     

    Never heard of Breather but it looks great!

  11. Maureen G.
     

    Wow! I think that sums it up!

  12. Brenda Jones
     

    Everyone can always use a change of scenery or a relaxing spa day. Need to bring this concept to Las Vegas. I have heard about it but not experienced it.

  13. Craig Shiraishi
     

    You and I both know that i need a spa day! lets do it!

  14. Eileah Phinnessee
     

    My team could always use a change of scenery.

  15. Teresa Stewart
     

    I would love for our team to host a meeting in one of the SoHo spaces because they have that start-up company vibe that just brings out the creativity in people

  16. Julie
     

    Yes please!

  17. Denise Labrado
     

    I would love to take a “breather”, pick me.

    Ahhhhh. Saving the best for last. YES!

  26. Nikita Patel

  27. Alicia
     

    What a great offering – who doesn’t need a break after taking care of everyone else?

  28. Atilda Kinard
     

    The space I would choose is 55 Union Street, 3rd Floor Boston. This space looks very relaxing; a great place to brainstorm and meet with your team outside of the usual office.

  29. Lisa Tilly
     

    Gotta Be Chi-Town!!

  30. Amber Muendel
     

    Chicago’s N Michigan looks like it would fill the ticket.

  31. Chase D
     

    Thinking how amazing all this sounds makes it even better knowing that it’s just that easy to experience.

  32. Sydney Salit
     

    Who doesn’t want to take a “Breather” every once in a while?

  33. Wendy Wingo
     

    Im looking forward to reserving a spot here for our next meeting

  34. Amy Lauren
     

    Oh – I will ABSOLUTELY be using Breather! We work in an open space office in DTLA and are always looking for options to find a more quiet space for extended meetings. This will be so helpful. I have a feeling I’ll be using Breather a lot.

  35. Christy O'Connell
     

    I’m looking forward to planning my next event and trying Breather.

  36. Cynthia Whitley
     

    Looks interesting – will check it out.

  37. Barbara Rogers
     

    Sounds really relaxing!

  38. Anne Thompson
     

    Great idea. I hope Breather comes to Seattle.

  39. Janie Eller
     

    I could certainly use a BREATHER!!

  40. Anne Thompson
     

    Such a great idea! I hope Breather comes to Seattle.

  41. Bella DePillo
     

    I love Breather!

  42. Ashley Agner
     

    We need one in Lima, OH!

  43. Annette M
     

    great off-site spaces – definitely bookmarking this source for future needs!

  44. Tracy Riordan
     

    I would love to treat my team to this!!! What a special treat.

  45. Ingrid
     

    The Can Do Admins of the world need to have their rejuvenation and relaxation time to keep on keeping on. Thanks for offering a terrific raffle price during Professional Admin week.

  46. Keisa Sanders
     

    I would use Breather to help me locate a space for our yearly HACK A THON. My R &D team would need a creative space for a two day meeting. We like fun and vibrant spaces.

  47. Katrina Hendrix
     

    We need more spaces in Palo Alto – not enough options but great to know this is an option for the city!

  48. Ivona
     

    These spaces look amazing. Would love to see Dallas added to the list of available cities.

  49. Emily
     

    Incredible concept!

  50. Marney Parker
     

    I really like all the details, down to the room set up. Great to know for future offsites!

  51. Mary Hoffbeck
     

    Ooh! I would pick the 999 Sutter – so bright and open!

  52. Stephanie Kuroda
     

    Oh, Dear Irving! Their cocktails, tho!

  53. Nicole
     

    I could use a breather! I would love to get my team away to do some team-building skills at a great venue offsite

  54. Bethany Carter
     

    Our company would use the space when we travel throughout the US. We have many outside sales reps that we could use Breather for.

  55. Angela K
     

    I’m going to call them now!

  56. monica m
     

    Nothing in Seattle but nice idea.

  57. Angela K
     

    I’m going to call then now!

  58. Melissa Dill
     

    Any of the spaces in NYC look like they would lend to a great break from the same old office and give us a better chance at getting the creative juices flowing!

  59. Donna G
     

    The space on Jefferson in Los Angeles looks awesome for a team building retreat complete with lunch since it has a sink and counter space. I’ve never been to a spa, but since I’ve been so busy at work filling in for others the past few weeks, I could really use some relaxation. I’d love to know what a massage and day of pampering is like!

  60. Ivone Palencia
     

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LAAAAA LAAAAA, I would love this <3

  61. Tiffany D.
     

    Yes! I could you some relaxation

  62. Shawn Moore
     

    Awwwesome! I need a relaxation day!

  63. Staci Ann Thompson
     

    I’ve never heard of Breather until they were highlighted in our raffle. What a cool concept!

  64. Laura Galvan
     

    It’s cool to know that there is availability like this all over SF to rent a room for a day. Good for the owners of Breather to come up with this concept and get buy in from each of the locations! Maybe start off with Post st!

  65. Brittany H.
     

    Hoping I get lucky with this last raffle! This week has been so much fun!

  66. Alison Truong
     

    Good luck everyone!

  67. Heather Collom
     

    This is amazing! Now I know Breather has my back when I’m inundated with visiting employees from out of town (because they NEVER coordinate with each other. Or with me.) Extra workspace and meeting space? I’ll be using them soon.

  68. Regina Assistant to Chief of Stuff
     

    I really like the flexibility of being able to rent spaces with custom features for events and offsite meetings! One of the coolest psychotherapy + ritual events I went to was in a rented Breather, and I realized how easy it is for anyone to make events happen.

  69. Victoria Dombroski
     

    This would be an incredible opportunity for anyone’s office!

  70. Victoria Dombroski
     

    This would be incredible for our company!

  71. Stacy D.
     

    We all deserve a breather!!!

  72. Samantha hamto
     

    Breather is a lifesaver!

  73. Kerry R.
     

    I could so use this with the Mercury Retrograde we’ve been in!

  74. Monica Martinez
     

    Happy Admin/miracle worker/magician/planner/office ninja day! #wemakeitlookeasy

  75. Leslie G.
     

    What an awesome resource. Hopefully, Austin will be added to the list!

  76. Christy
     

    I can relate with Cheryl… But.. Here is to hoping!

  77. Ann Nihil
     

    I have our first massage day coming up in May. Our group is super excited to have this offering. Would love to provide more days like this.

  78. Bonnie H
     

    These are great spaces for people who need meeting spaces in these cities.

  79. Christy
     

    I can relate with that feeling Cheryl. Here’s to hoping!

  80. Alyssa Goodwin
     

    This is something we all deserve to win!!!

  81. Dania Jolley
     

    Looking forward to using Breather for future meetings/events.

  82. kristy nielsen
     

    465 California St, #310 is stunning! I can see so many possibilities with this space

  83. Penney
     

    This is a well needed service.

  84. Carolyn M.
     

    It would be great for our future psychological counselors to use these things for practice sessions. And inbetween times, I’ll use it!

  85. Fatima
     

    After 2 weeks of vacation last year, I came back so much stronger. A great idea!

  86. Cindy Beauchamp
     

    Oh man! Office space is at a premium in some markets. What an amazing way to find the space you need without having to do a lot of work!

  87. Catie S.
     

    350 Townsend in SF!

  88. Jessica Weber
     

    1 Hallidie Plaza, 3rd Floor, Suite 305 – the light looks amazing!

  89. Natalie Harris
     

    Let’s see how this goes……

  90. Latricia Friend
     

    Fabulous resource. The WilltVale location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn would be great for our team building day.

  91. Betsy McCann
     

    CHicago! 205 W Wacker so we can be on the river!

  92. Jessy Oates
     

    Breather has some really nice work spaces!

  93. Tigress
     

    What lovely and light-filled spaces. I would definitely use the Bryant Street space for my team if we won!

  94. LizV
     

    This would be awesome!

  95. LizKate
     

    I’m so ready for this

  96. LaLeeta Pitts
     

    I need this so bad. Had two family emergencies this week, and now I’m sick. We will all get better, but a spa day would be nice.

  97. Sandy D
     

    Just what the Doctor ordered to get the blood pressure down.

  98. Sue
     

    Great spaces and concept!! Unfortunately the locations are very limited, limiting those of us that can actually enter to win. :-( I’ll certainly keep it in mind though in case I have a need, or hear of someone that does!! Thanks for the fun week!

  99. Meg
     

    I need a massage!!!!

  100. Betty D
     

    Wow, never heard of Breather before, but great idea!

  101. Kelly
     

    Pick me!!! :)

  102. Debbie
     

    We could use this in Dallas!

  103. Latricia Friend
     

    Fabulous resource! The William Vale location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn would be great for our summer refresh and retooling day.

  104. Melissa Burton
     

    What a brilliant raffle idea!! My favorite APD appreciation gift from the company is a spa gift certificate. As a mother of two (infant and toddler), life is stressful. Add in a full-time job, where you are always connected to work and in demand, the prospect of some alone time to be pampered makes me dreamy eyed. Many thanks to the sponsor for their support of us Admins!

  105. Becky Jones
     

    Great Service, thanks for sharing!

  106. Wendy Roell
     

    Chicago for sure! Love the windy city!

  107. Janie Vu
     

    I never win anything. It’d be cool to win this much needed change of space and pace.

  108. Alison Lyon
     

    I need space soon for a trustee retreat. This would be fantastic.

  109. Laura V
     

    We need Breather in Cincinnati.

  110. Gayle Jacob
     

    This would be heavenly to win!

  111. Chanelle
     

    Toronot for Sure

  112. Laura Levinson
     

    So fab! Who doesn’t love a good spa day??

  113. Vida Martsolf
     

    What an amazing service

  114. HannahJ
     

    I would choose the Los Angeles spaces or San Francisco spaces for offsite meetings. These spaces look amazing and I love that you can book them on an hourly rate and not just a day rate.

  115. JDelic
     

    My entire office would love this! All CompSci folks bent over computers all day (in spite of our best ergonomics efforts!)

  116. Mary Oster
     

    I’d love to work for a day in River North.

  117. Lilybeth
     

    I need a spa day… or twelve.

  118. JDelic
     

    Our entire office would love this!

  119. Emily Ballweber
     

    Wow! This is great!

  120. Julie R
     

    A nice breather would be nice after moving across country for a job, and my moving company losing my belongings for a month and then upon receiving it my truck had been flooded losing a lot of things. Hopefully this would help me feel more comfortable in this new role.

  121. Jennifer Krentler
     

    Love the decor. Our office could use sprucing up!

  122. Kimberly
     

    What a great resource. I will def add this to my list for future use.

  123. Anita Conrad
     

    A little relax time! Count me in!

  124. Zoro
     

    This sounds great!

  125. Mleissa Haas
     

    594 Howard St! Looks like a such a beautiful space and perfect size for my team!

  126. Erica Gonzalez
     

    Love the concept. Breather needs to come to San Diego!

  127. Tana
     

    Wonderful idea(s), unfortunately working for the city we rarely book outside our own conference rooms. Fingers crossed wer allowed to one day.

  128. Cynthia Gylov
     

    This is a fabulous idea! Would love to try it!

  129. Jayme Fay
     

    Thanks for doing this! Much love to the office ninjas!

  130. Laura D
     

    Nice spaces but only in SF?

  131. Bridget Kirkwood
     

    San Francisco!

  132. ML
     

    What beautiful spaces!

  133. Kim Rohrer
     

    I would use 1611 Telegraph, 10th Floor, Suite 1030 to work on OrgOrg stuff with our team. In a dream world where I fly everyone to the bay area for a retreat :)

  134. Eileen McD.
     

    I’ve never heard of Breather before but their policies sound great.

  135. Adrienne
     

    Could use some relaxation for sure, especially when busy at work and getting stressful.

  136. Jasmyne Sanders
     

    Breather is exactly what i’ve been looking for! Looking forward to trying it out!

  137. Teresa Healy
     

    Great raffle prize!

  138. Amanda
     

    Yay – did I hear “spa”?

  139. Mia C, CAP
     

    Who doesn’t need a spa treatment these days?! :) I hope I get this one!

  140. Mandi Corona
     

    These look like great meeting spaces for off sites!

  141. Amanda S
     

    Definitely will look into Breather!

  142. Shauna Greika
     

    Our office works so hard that relaxation is so beneficial to keep our employees working at their best

  143. Jenifer DuPape
     

    Thanks to this raffle, I have now found an alternate space in DC for an upcoming meeting!!

  144. Valerie Wright
     

    This is desperately needed!!! Fingers crossed!!!

  145. Janine M
     

    What a cool idea!

  146. FR
     

    London since we have a company office there!

  147. Dawn Mlejnek
     

    Would love to win a spa treatment!!

  148. Shelly
     

    594 Howard Street

  149. Sandy K
     

    Well none of their options are local to me, so let’s dream big and we’d choose a site in London. It’s good to dream right?

  150. Latessa Williams
     

    I have never heard of Breather before but I am beyond excited at the possibility of this raffle win! I could truly use a spa

  151. Cindy H.
     

    1411 5th St. in Santa Monica!

  152. NJ Small
     

    Yay relaxation!

  153. Lynda T-S
     

    Love spa treatments! Looking forward to winning this raffle. :-)

  154. Cindy H.
     

    1411 5th St. right in Santa Monica, CA!

  155. Karen H.
     

    It would be so awesome to win this one!

  156. Jeanne Taylor
     

    This would be lovely to win! *fingers crossed*

  157. Kristine S.
     

    Thanks for supporting Administrative Professionals! I look forward to learning more about Breather.

  158. Judy Ngo
     

    This makes me think of doing a company raffle to give teams a chance to work offsite at a Breather location in SF! Great idea!

  159. Margie A.
     

    Spahhh-mazing! We could all use beauty break.

  160. Addie1od
     

    How amazing would this be to win!??

  161. Judy Ngo
     

    This is a great opportunity to try Breather! The spa also sounds nice!

  162. Amber M
     

    Would love to put together an offsite event for our Admin team! Winning this would be so great!

  163. Chantal Anderson
     

    I know of Breather but have yet to book. Looking forward to it!?

  164. Patricia Robidoux
     

    Fabulous resource!

  165. Mary Markarian
     

    a spa day would be so nice!

  166. Jill Kinison
     

    1225 Electric Avenue in LA hands down! Helllo Venice Beach :)

  167. Rhonda L.
     

    Fabulous idea! Thanks!

  168. Ashley Thornton
     

    Can’t wait to try out Breather!! #AdminWeek

  169. Christina Holland
     

    Looking forward to exploring these options!

  170. Bonnie S.
     

    Sounds like a wonderful option!

  171. Nancy
     

    So many amazing spaces!

  172. Sarah
     

    It would be great to have new options for offsite events

  173. Teres Mongrain
     

    I would love to wine this one! I need a spa treatment!

  174. P. Smith
     

    I’ve worked with Breather before – they have a ton of nice spaces in the city for team meetings of all sizes. Their account managers are great as well!

  175. KELLY M RICHARDSON
     

    #officeninjasrock #keeponkeepingon

  176. Leticia V
     

    I would love to host a team building for fellow admins. Possibly Santa Monica area. Hopefully they start to make their way south to the OC area.

  177. S. Torres
     

    Breather seems like a great resource. Looking forward to learn more about it.

  178. Sheila Mackoway
     

    This sounds sooooo good! DEFINITELY needed & would be so appreciated :)

  179. Marella
     

    Awesome spaces!

  180. Sasha O
     

    This would be an AMAZING surprise for everyone here!

  181. Katie Burgess
     

    Wow! I hadn’t heard about Breather until now and what a cool concept. I’d love to bring my team to the 526 Bryant Street Room in San Francisco!

  182. Mary K. Bacon
     

    Great concept… Although they don’t have anything local to my area, I have sales teams all over the country – and they are often looking for meeting space.

  183. Staci G
     

    45 Belden Street in SF would work well for some of our smaller meetings. Plus a great change of pace from what we are used to.

  184. Cassey
     

    I’ve used breather before and I really liked their space (very clean and modern, a big plus for lots of windows!). I plan some of our smaller team offsites and something like the 833 Market St. Suite 316 location would be perfect because of its size and walking distance from the Caltrain Station.

  185. Martha Santana
     

    The Palo Alto spaces look amazing!

  186. TaSheena Braxton
     

    I’ve never heard of Breather, but Mama needs some rest and relaxation! A spa day would be Amaze-BALLS!

  187. Bonnie B.
     

    Just what the doctor ordered.

  188. Chandra
     

    This would be fantastic if it was in Portland Oregon! Finding offsite meeting locations is hard.

  189. Kristina D.
     

    I can’t wait to try it!

  190. Alice
     

    I’ve used Breather before for a company offsite. I loved that I didn’t have to go pick up any keys ahead of time or set anything up. Our employees were able access and use the space without me ever having been there!

  191. Nicole Graybeal
     

    Our admin team could use a breather after this week! Half of our team was out all week leaving 3 of us to hold our office together. We made do (of course because we are office ninjas ;)) but now are need of some relaxation! Would love to win and surprise them :)

  192. Catherine
     

    Anywhere but here… it would be an awesome experience.

  193. Katy Pierce
     

    The spaces in New York are amazing and cozy. I love taking a break from the running around and booking a room. It allows me to work with absolutely no interruptions.

  194. Frankie Fernandes
     

    135 Bowery #1 looks perfect for our board meeting or to mix it up with our design sprints!

  195. Kari Furse
     

    I want to find out more about breather! Hoping to win something!!

  196. Judith Waits
     

    This would be great for team building! The admins in our building run like holy crazy. A day outside the building would really give them a boost!

  197. Sounita
     

    These spaces are so pretty!!

  198. Marie D
     

    I would make time for this! Just daydreaming of the spa makes me slightly more relaxed!

  199. Jackie P
     

    166 Geary Street, 12th Floor, Suite 1209 San Francisco. I would rent this space for a personal escape! Beautiful, airy, bright, and cozy. A nice little nook for reading, writing, and relaxation.

  200. Jolene Bleistein
     

    510 Mission St in SF would be great for an offsite!

  201. Vesna Cottrell
     

    Sounds like a great concept I’d love to try.

  202. Kelly Jack
     

    London would be my ideal space, but since Chicago is the closest, I would just fine with that.

  203. Nicole Sauceda
     

    615 Hampton Dr., Suite c101, Venice

  204. Shanen Stone
     

    I would pick 205 W Wacker #619 in Chicago for when my boss had all day meetings there with clients. Very relaxing and professional space.

  205. Mary Wilson
     

    Looks like great places

  206. Gina R.
     

    I think Breather would do well in New Orleans. We hold offsite meetings and Breather would be a great resource.

  207. ToddyM
     

    Yess Please!!

  208. Kimi Hein
     

    But when we go to the spa, will they ask us to re-arrange their calendars? ;)

  209. Emily Donald
     

    This prize sounds great!

  210. Charisse
     

    Yes on spa treatments! We work so hard to keep it all together – we deserve a spa day!

  211. Yvonne M.
     

    This would be incredible. & I could treat my admin team!

  212. Trisha Murcia
     

    This sounds great

  213. Kim Anderson
     

    spafinder?! what is this beautiful sounding thing?

  214. Barb P.
     

    I’m unable to sign up for the daily raffle…….keeps telling me I have to complete all the required fields and the “save” button is grayed out. Frustrating! Tried several times with same result.

    1. Kim Anderson
       

      happened to me to- change your country, then change back to the US

    2. Sarah
       

      Having the exact same issue.

        Hi Sarah, we were having some problems with the giveaway software, but they are all fixed now! Please let us know if you have any other issues.

      Hi Barb. Our giveaway software was experiencing problems but we have fixed it now. Please let us know if you have any other difficulties!

  215. Sarah
     

    Loved the bash!!!! I’d do an admin retreat spa/day.

  216. Jaime Shaffer
     

    A spa day sounds AMAZING!!!!

  217. Tina Piety
     

    Sounds like a great resource.

  218. Elaina Harris
     

    All the spaces are beautifully done; wow!! This is so HARD — so the Hub, Suite or Workshop would be great but there are limited options for Washington D.C. and Chicago. For our July meeting, I’d have to say the HUB for convenience with European colleagues participating for this event.

  219. Stephanie
     

    Go Ninja Go Ninja go!! Last one, here we go! **fingers crossed**

  220. Karlena Rannals
     

    Nice.

  221. Sandy S.
     

    Out of all the great prizes this week, this is the one I want most! Good luck to us all!

  222. Jennifer Northrop
     

    I would like 241 Centre Street, 5th Floor, New York actually, they are all really nice. It is hard to choose.

  223. Tanya F.
     

    This would be such a treat for everyone. Wow!

  224. Sharon
     

    This would be a wonderful experience!

  225. LeeAnne
     

    I’m excited to test drive this service!

  226. Debra Coleman
     

    would LOVE to have a day at the spa….i think it’s important to treat ourselves every once in awhile. we’re so busy making others lives easier, its good to remember ourselves from time to time.

  227. Andrea
     

    This sounds like such a great resource!

  228. Karen Liu
     

    526 Bryant Street, Room 1-Palo Alto. Love the vintage feel!

  229. Tran Huynh
     

    This sounds amazing.

  230. Alicesun
     

    I love the 1 Hallidie Plaza space in San Francisco. Great location and view!

  231. Margie Maboloc
     

    What a fabulous prize!

  232. stylolele
     

    Wahoo!

  233. Peggy Cecil
     

    I am going to use this resource. There are locations close to our office and the rates look reasonable.

  234. Kelly Lee
     

    What a great idea!

  235. Lisa Buck
     

    Who wouldn’t want this??

  236. Bobbi Klebenow
     

    Its nice to dream.

  237. Col
     

    Amazing!

  238. pinky
     

    Very cool.

  239. JulestheSamurai
     

    This would be an absolute dream for my colleagues and I.

  240. Bobbi Klebenow
     

    Saved the best for last. I’m so excited.

    1. Morgan M.
       

      YAS- Relaxation!

  241. Jenny Stewart
     

    My company needs this so much!

  242. Amanda Mitchell
     

    Yes, please! Thank you!

  243. Sajira
     

    Yes, please!

  244. AMA
     

    Dreaming of pampering sessions.

  245. Julie Evans
     

    Fabulous!

  246. Melody
     

    Oh my goodness-so useful! I sometimes need space in San Francisco and these spaces look beautiful!

  247. Julie Evans
     

    This would be fabulous! Not only a “breather,” but a breath of fresh air!!

  248. Rachel B.
     

    Looks like a good excuse for a weekend in Chicago : )

  249. Amy Spellman
     

    An office of 410, moving to a brand new office in August, another office move in Denver just completed, and everything in-between… I may be a bad-ass OfficeNinja, but even I need a “Breather.”

  250. Joetta Porter
     

    There’s nothing in my area, but my team is often on the East or West Coast, so possibly the DC or SF areas.

  251. Mary Beth
     

    Breather makes finding offsite meeting space SO easy

  252. Gina
     

    Great idea for meeting space. I would choose one of the spaces in downtown Chicago.

  253. Sheila Minogue
     

    In our fast-paced work environment, I could always use a breather – and a spa day!!

  254. Joetta Porter
     

    What a great resource.

  255. Dell Carroll
     

    Going to LA in the summer, would LOVE this!

  256. Kelly
     

    I think everyone could use a Breather! :)

  257. Jenna-Wade Fowler
     

    I didn’t see any Breather spaces in Dallas, TX

  258. Barbara R.
     

    My office team really needs this!

  259. DG
     

    Awesome idea!

  260. Dolores Alimi
     

    This sounds great!!!

  261. Jeannette C
     

    The closest is Boston. I like 55 Union Street and 36 Gloucester #2. Great idea!!

  262. Michele Freeman
     

    These are really cool! We have some similar type spaces for co-working in Austin, but not as much for meeting. If I could use any of the spaces I would totally take the one in Avenue de Gaspé in Montreal.

  263. Christine Grizzle
     

    Oh how I need a breather! After 3 full weeks of reconfiguring office space – noise, chaos, confusion, packing, moving, moving again…that would be so nice!

  264. Michele Freeman
     

    I’m in Austin, but I would totally go to the spaces in Montreal, the one at Avenue de Gaspé looks awesome!

  265. Christy G
     

    Admin week has been great and my officemates have shown me much love this week. Breather looks nice, except we do not have a Breather space in Dallas. I am sure this concept would work well in this city.
    Christy

  266. Jeannette C
     

    I’ve never heard of Breather. What an fantastic idea!! And everyone can use a spa day!

  267. Tiffany M
     

    Happy Friday to all you Office Ninjas out there! Hope you had a great Admin Pro week! And best of luck to all of you on the giveaways! :)

  268. Trish K
     

    This is perfect! We have been looking for an alternative off-site meeting space since our building’s conference room is so dreary.

  269. Lindsay Wahlquist
     

    Wow! What a fantastic service and prize.

  270. Diahann Soleno
     

    I cant wait to win! :)

  271. Sylvia Jones
     

    Relaxing… what a great idea!

  272. Jordan Hunter
     

    I use Breather a lot and our whole team loves it! Would be wonderful to have a credit on my tight nonprofit budget!

  273. Melissa Menchaca
     

    I would love a spa day!

  274. Ali Berger
     

    727 15 ST NW in DC would be a great location for an all-day team outing! Perfect size for our team!

  275. Danielle O.
     

    Congrats to the winners. This is a must have.

  276. Jackie
     

    What a wonderful prize. I have not had a spa day in years. It would be a real treat!

  277. Meghan Cooney
     

    Wow! What a fantastic prize to end Admin week. I would love a good excuse for some relaxation :) good luck to all who enter!!

  278. Debbie Vick
     

    Yes, we need them in Dallas!

  279. Dawn
     

    Spa day would be great for the admin team in our office.

  280. Jennifer Rigby
     

    What a neat idea! I hope I can utilize this one day.

  281. Donna Perez
     

    I wish they were in Dallas. Looks like some great spaces.

  282. butterfliesruhl
     

    Sounds great!

  283. Deva
     

    This seems like a nice change of speed from normal meeting spaces

  284. Mary K. Bacon
     

    Great concept. Thanks for sharing! I will definitely file this one away. There are none in Texas but I have teams all over the country.

  285. Donna Perez
     

    It looks like they have some really great spaces, unfortunately, they are not in Dallas yet.

  286. tamie
     

    sounds fantastic hope whoever wins enjoys.

  287. LaShaune DeJean
     

    What a fantastic concept. Maybe they will bring their offerings to Houston

  288. Angela Hogate
     

    This is the first time I have heard of Breather and look forward to booking a space.!

  289. Stacy Torzala
     

    I appreciate ALL the great insight OfficeNinjas has provided during this fun week!
    Love being apart of a fun group….and Thank you to all the Admins out there that work super hard all year long!
    We ROCK!!

  290. Gina
     

    Fab!

  291. vicki
     

    Bummer this doesn’t help me in Georgia!

  292. Brittney B
     

    So cool!

  293. Kathy C.
     

    This sounds awesome!

  294. Arrikka Hunter
     

    I think Breather is great. I’ve rented space from them in as far as London and they were amazing.

  295. Cherie Moen
     

    It looks like Chicago would be the closest location.

    I love this idea! It’s frustrating when you spend months working with a location on all the details your boss asks for, then on the day of the event the set up is all wrong (I show up early in flat heels expecting to rearrange tables/chairs). Or the invoice comes back later with charges for negotiated items. I like that Breather lists “Dependable” and “consistent” on their webpage!

  296. Jessica S.
     

    We’ve used the Breather space in 594 Broadway in NYC! It’s beautiful, and my rep with Breather has been AWESOME to work with any time we needed to book some space!

  297. Jaime Kelley
     

    This is such a cool concept! Too bad they’re not in Dallas, TX, yet. Great prizes this week, OfficeNinjas… and CONGRATS! to all the winners and All-Star Ninjas!

  298. Kelsey K
     

    Sadly the closest location to me is Chicago, but I really love the meeting space at 750 N Franklin. It looks so inviting and like my team could really get a lot done with the large space.

  299. Michele Bolton
     

    It’s been a great Admin Week! Thank you, Office Ninjas, for pumping us up and for all the fun giveaways! I’ve also enjoyed seeing the stories about the winners!

  300. Warni Flournoy
     

    WOW, this sounds great!

  301. Jean Weaver
     

    There are no work spaces on Breather in my vicinity, so I’d have to plan an off-site in Chicago.

  302. Laura B.
     

    How wonderful this would be to win!

  303. Tanya King
     

    Too bad they’re not in or around Nashville, TN, because they have a lot of great spaces to choose from.

  304. Victoria
     

    I like 51 Wooster Street for an intern mixer.

  305. Gretchen Burns
     

    It doesn’t look like Breather is available in my city of Columbus, Ohio. If it was, I would choose one of the light, airy spaces with plenty of table space.

  306. Jennifer Stodola
     

    These spaces look so comfortable and inviting!
    Happy Administrative Professional week everyone!

  307. Jenna Rall
     

    I would choose London!

  308. Wendy G. Counkle
     

    Just yesterday I said to myself that weneeded a great place to unwind in throughout the day we work some long hours, and this would be perfect for us!

  309. Laura B.
     

    What a fabulous idea!

  310. Laura B.
     

    What a wonderful idea!!!

  311. Tracy Lorenz
     

    The breather spaces in SF’s soma district are amazing. Love it!

  312. Gretchen Burns
     

    I do not often book outside office space but may in the future. This prize looks amazing!

  313. Kathy Whelan
     

    These spaces look like homes and so comfortable and relaxing – great for an office retreat!

  314. Theresa P.
     

    Happy Admin Week. Thank you for being a part of this Breather! I have never heard of you, but it sounds like a great concept!

  315. Laura B.
     

    Oh my gosh! Who wouldn’t love this! Looks fabulous.

  316. Jennifer Molina
     

    Spa day would be great!!! My office needs it.

  317. Mary H
     

    I’ve never heard of breather, but I could definitely use one! I never win but congrats to all you other OfficeNinja’s out there that have this week. Happy Administrative Professional’s Week to everyone!!!

  318. Stephanie Jensen
     

    I have physicians who meet in Chicago, and might find the space interesting.

  319. Julie A Bock
     

    I a man constantly helping EAs look for alternative meeting space across North America. This is a superb option, especially for Chicago. Thank you for the introduction.

  320. Angela Garvin
     

    The Washington, D.C. collection caught my eye. The ideal space would accommodate about 50 people for 2 days, with all the technical accoutrements, and a side-space for the caterers to set up lunch.

  321. Jaime B
     

    Love this idea! Some of the most stressful parts of this job is finding appropriate spaces for meetings and having everything you need to be productive. This saves so much time.

  322. Trish S
     

    Relax, unwind and breathe!!!! What a fun week.

  323. Dana
     

    More than simply “Calgon, take me away!”

  324. Jenn Rochinski
     

    With so many options it’s hard to choose but my top two choices would be New York City and then Los Angeles :) This is truly amazing and who wouldn’t want to give this a try.

  325. Linda Gulley
     

    Breather would be a perfect resource for our company. Hope Columbus, Ohio is added to their list, soon. I’m content to wait at the spa, though. I’m flexible like that. :o)

  326. Corliss Lee
     

    Love taking care of everybody at the office but we often forget to take care of ourselves! To be able to relax and have some peace and quiet is def something every office admin needs

  327. Corliss Lee
     

    <3 Love taking care of everybody but we often forget to take care of ourselves! To be able to relax and have some peace and quiet is def something every office admin needs

  328. Gina Forrester
     

    Space can be an issue at times, even at a huge company like Genentech. I’m definitely interested in Breather.

  329. Rose Bailey
     

    Who doesn’t love relaxation?! I have never heard of Breather before, but what a great idea.

  330. Karina M
     

    Great resource for those cities!

  331. Iridia Snowden
     

    All of the spaces are great, we are based in DC so I could use anyone one of them. Thanks for sharing this information – I will keep them in mind for future meetings/breakouts.

  332. Joanna Ortiz
     

    We do a lot of meetings in the Boston & New York areas, but really wish there was a service like this in the Philadelphia area where we host most of our off-sites (hint, hint…). Looking forward to checking out this service next time we’re in need of meeting space.

  333. Barb P.
     

    New York City, although any of them would be wonderful.

  334. Pamela
     

    I neeeed this! I just started a new job and spa treatments are off my budget for at least three months!!

  335. Rose Bailey
     

    Who doesn’t love relaxation?! Haven’t heard of Breather before, but what a great idea!

  336. Annette Knepper
     

    I would so love this – some me time – needed very much.

  337. Nikki C
     

    this looks exciting! I would love a breather!

  338. Barb
     

    A great idea. Who doesn’t need this?

  339. Karon McMakin
     

    Last raffle and the system will not allow me to enter–bummer. It says I haven’t completed the entry but I have. I need a breather!!

  340. Jenna B.
     

    Sounds amazing

  341. Gwynne R.
     

    Gorgeous spaces, I can’t wait for our company to try this.

  342. De Ann Perez
     

    Sounds awesome!! Need to check for them in Fort Myers, Florida and suggest them.

  343. Judy
     

    Love the colors and it looks so comfy!

  344. Chela Miller
     

    Our HQ is in D.C., and I would love to book some of those spaces for team offsites and all-day meetings. I’d also love for them to come to Dallas where our second largest North America office lives.

  345. Amanda Reed
     

    Love Breather! They have multiple spaces in our office building and make it super-easy to book space on short notice. One of our client-facing teams enjoyed a very focused, day-long off-site in a Breather suite earlier this month.

  346. Katie
     

    Sadly I don’t live in any of these cities. But I love the SF 510 Mission space, with the comfy couch, big windows, and exposed brick. Just looking at it makes me feel more creative :)

  347. Chanelle Miller
     

    I would choose Toronto or Califorinia!

  348. Corri
     

    This would be wonderful.

  349. Beth
     

    I’ve never heard of Breather, but I’m definitely going to check them out. Fun, functional meeting space is always in high demand!

  350. Nancy Sweeney
     

    who couldn’t use this?!!

  351. reischell
     

    Could really use this in our office

  352. SAM GRAY
     

    I would use the breather space for our people to get together r to discuss strategies for improving our business next year.

  353. Debra Neff
     

    The spaces look beautiful – lots of natural light! Love it!

  354. Nancy Sweeney
     

    We’re just beginning to plan an office refresh, this would be perfect!

  355. Nancy Sweeney
     

    we’re just beginning to plan an office refresh, this would be perfect for us.

  356. Lianne V
     

    My office would LOVE this for an off-site work party – I’ve been saying for months that we should have a party to be able to hang out outside of the stress of work. This would be the perfect solution! :)

  357. Joan Feifar
     

    Chicago – Streeterville, River North, or North Loop. Would be a great morale booster!

  358. Terrie Cassidy
     

    Whoa! What an awesome idea!!!!

  359. Laura S
     

    This is fantastic! My team is always looking for new spaces for our team off sites. Thank you! I will pass on to the other admins at our company.

  360. AmyBH
     

    I signed up for alerts for Richmond, VA. The best location for us right now would be DC.

  361. Gail Wright
     

    Wonderful idea!

  362. Stephanie W
     

    I would love to have a meeting in NYC!

  363. Nikki Senensky
     

    80 Clerkenwell Road in London looks absolutely stunning!!!

  364. Marcia Tatay
     

    The loop in ChiTown!

  365. Carolyn M.
     

    Perfect for our students learning to be counselors.

  366. AmyBH
     

    I hope they have something in Virginia. I’ve given up trying to find something similar in the Richmond area, but I’ll check it out anyway! The spaces look incredible… everything you’d need in a meeting place. I’m imagining not having to drag around my rolling briefcase full of markers, chargers, extra cords…etc :)

  367. Debbie B.
     

    Great idea – I’ll definitely be checking this for future meetings

  368. Nikki Blythe
     

    will check it out

  369. Femalekyle
     

    This would be great for meetings in NYC where spaces are difficult to find

  370. Debbie K
     

    I sooooo could use a “breather” after my crazy busy week this week!

  371. barbara cohen
     

    something in DC would be awesome!

  372. Nicole Pillatsch
     

    Gorgeous spaces!

  373. angela Hernandez
     

    facial here I come!

  374. Cathy P
     

    Maybe next year!

  375. Kym Possible
     

    Ahhh….relaxation!

  376. Eileen
     

    Aaaahhhh … a breather I could use :)

  377. Janie Clark
     

    Breather seems like a great idea especially if you have to arrange a meeting in a different city, although sometime challenging in your own city with finding somewhere suitable. There is not one in my city, would like to see one in Dallas. That being said, if I had to pick a place to have an offsite event, I would choose London!

  378. Margie Arroyo
     

    Spahhh! Who can ask for more?

  379. Tamara H
     

    I could use any form of relaxation!

  380. Yvette Wallus
     

    How nice! I’d definitely be able to add “Happiness Hero” to my job title if I booked one of these spaces.

  381. Janie Clark
     

    This is a great concept for those that have to set up meetings in a different city or for thinking “outside the office” in your own city. That being said, there is not one in my city. So if I had to choose, why not go big and pick an offsite meeting in London!

  382. Lisa A.
     

    This would be a fantastic treat!

  383. Melissa Goens/Interstate Batteries
     

    Awesome!

  384. Jennifer B.
     

    I’ve never heard of Breather before, it’s an excellent change from the usual conference areas. The locations in NY look beautiful and are full of light, they would be great for team building and brainstorming sessions!

  385. Cassie Camp
     

    The DC locations look awesome! Will definitely keep Breather in mind for our leadership office later this year.

    1. Cassie Camp
       

      Yeah, that should definitely say off-site, not office. Not enough coffee this AM!

  386. Ann Hoggard
     

    Who’s doesn’t like to relax?

  387. ADtheAdmin
     

    This looks great, and potentially useful, since I’m in the DC area!

  388. Kelly Lee
     

    The spaces look beautiful!

  389. Donna McPherson
     

    This is very interesting. Our team gets so focused it would be great to try a more relaxed venue. I’ll check it out. Thanks!

    Beautiful spaces. Wish there was one in Cleveland

    We happen to have fairly frequent travel near Boston. Boston or LA would work for me! :)

  393. Brenda
     

    For the small business or traveling exec this would be a great option. And any admin could use some spa time!

  394. April R Gordon
     

    Would definitely use Breather when I’m in D.C.!

  395. Ellen
     

    Exactly what I need!

    Los Angeles!

    This sounds amazing!

  399. Heather Winter
     

    This would be perfect after a long week (or day) at the office!

    I have never heard of them but sounds great.

    There aren’t any locations in my current city but I will keep these mind if we ever need a space in one of their cities.

  406. Jody Garrison
     

    I would pick a location with comfy chairs, lots of power outlets, and a ton of whiteboard space (preferably the whole wall).

  407. Michele Bolton
     

    Breather sounds fantastic! Hoping all Admin have had a fabulous week!!

  408. Awilda Hinton
     

    Unfortunately, Breather is not located in any of the cities where we operate.

  409. Jean
     

    Looks real nice

  410. Kayla
     

    Every Admin can use a spa day!

  411. Olivia Hull
     

    Breather is my all time fav for finding offsite rental space! I doubt I’ll win (it’s seeming unlikely at this point) but loved this whole week!

  412. Lenni Thigpen
     

    Looks like fun!

  413. Cathy
     

    This is a great idea. I will keep it in mind when I look for meeting space.

  414. Jennifer Krentler
     

    I’d like to get a space in Harrisburg, PA

  415. Andrena Brown
     

    It is great that Admins are recognized this way. Sometimes we are the forgotten ones. Keep up the good work.

  416. Colleen Delcamp
     

    This sounds absolutely wonderful.

  417. Colleen Delcamp
     

    It sounds wonderful.

    Happy for the winners, love to me my name!

  419. Debra Benjamin
     

    727 15 Street NW, 11th Floor, Suite 1102, Washington DC because it looks like you’re in someone’s home and can be relaxed.

  420. Barbara R.
     

    Our company needs this!

  421. Audacious Admin
     

    Great idea!
