You would need to set permissions on that Calendar for others to view info based on your needs. y default, 'Busy' will be shown for all objects within a Calendar if no specific permissions are set.

Within Outlook, while logged into the PC as a Domain admin, R-Click on the Calendar in question and select 'Properties'. This brings up the Calendar Properties GUI. Select the 'Permissions' tab and then set the permissions. Click 'Add' to search fora Domain User or Group to allow permissions and then set the permissions based on the options on the GUI. Add and set the permissions for each group you wish to see more info than seen.

If this does not work, then you may need to share that Calendar with your organization, and while sharing it you would set your view permissions.

I do not believe this is possible. They will either be able to see either:
Nothing
Free/Busy time
Free/Busy time with subject and location
Or the full details of the booking.

You can also modify the permissions to the Room Mailbox using the Exchange Management Shell.
Get existing permissions first:
Get-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity "Room Mailbox:\Calendar" | Select User,AccessRights | fl

If you're changing the permissions for everyone accessing this calendar:
Set-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity "Room Mailbox:\Calendar" -User Default -AccessRights <Permission Level>

To get a list of the available AccessRights, look at the AccessRights parameter values here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff522363.aspx (you'll need to expand Parameters).
