Exchange 2010 Room Resource permissions

I am curious people's thoughts on the best way to complete the following task.

I have a user who has requested a room resource be setup in Exchange 2010. The user wants the room resource to be made available to a few people who have will access to it. The resource calendar can be viewed by everyone else but not booked.

What is the best way to do this?

I guess on the calendar of the resource mailbox calendar through Outlook make the default and anonymous to None and give specific users rights to Book the conf room.

As far as the resource permissions, you  need to take a alook at the following http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124374.aspx

You can also do this from EMC with restricting all and allowing only few users to send meetings\email to this Mailbox.

This is found in the Properties of the Mailbox in the Mail Flow Settings tab under Message Delivery Restrictions.
This can be performed by configuring the Accept Messages From setting in the Message Delivery Restrictions, and specifying mail-enabled groups who are allowed to send to the list.

Article is just to understand the concept

This would mean that resource mailbox to be available to view by everyone, this is possible with default settings for resource mailbox. (avoid reading above link, it possibly was for another post - don't confuse yourself).

Here is the link to create resource mailbox.

Next, you'll need to disable automatic booking, refer to the following link

Finally, to give access to few people, so you need to set them as delegate and provide full mailbox access, refer to the following link

AND you are good to go.

Success! Thanks Rancy, your suggestion was a good option and worked a treat.

Exchange_Geek, I used yours as a test bed after the fact and it works as well, I just didn't want to use delegations in this instance, can get a bit messy with management.

One thing I did find with calendar views permissions. With the method Rancy suggested and using Exchange 2010 to set up the calendar. I found users with Outlook 2010 could review the calendar with no issues, while users with Outlook 2007 could not, (Outlook 2007 said the user didn't have read priv's).  After a little bit of research, (this is a known issue), by granting the user Full Permissions on the calendar, users could review the calendar in Outlook 2007 without issue.

Thanks again.

Both were working answers but Rancy's was more applicable to my situation.
