Came here for a convention. Very clean inside! Even the bathrooms. Food service is good. Snack bar employees were very helpful and thoughtful. They said they don't have specialty flavors for coffee, but they brought them in special for the event that we attended.

Parking was a little crazy at the event we went to, but it was a nice place, with quick access from Cowboy Stadium and the main road from the stadium to the freeway.

It's your typical convention center-although a bit dated. I have been to several events hosted here and my only complaints are the wifi, the dim lighting, and the food. Not everyone likes hot dogs and pretzels. Parking is adequate but the entry is up a bit of a walk up an awkward ramp-not so friendly for older visitors, wheelchairs, or... More

This was the location of the Univ of Missouri alumni association pre-game rally. There were 2 rooms needed for different crowds and everyone fit comfortably. The buffet food was above average for buffet food.

Staff has always been helpful. Pretty good options in the layout and near a lot of things. My only complaint is that they have no way for you to put signs or room identification anywhere in the building. Seems like that would be logical, but they aren't interested in fixing that problem (and they won't let you hang signs.

Don't have your event here. Pick anywhere else. Not that clean, terrible location unless being in the middle of all the traffic due to Six Flags, the Rangers ballpark, and the intersection of two highways is a good one for you. Some parts are remodeled, but for the most part it feels old. Connected to an aging Sheraton that doesn't... More

As someone said in an earlier review, this is a conventions center...should not be easy to mess up. All in all I was very happy with the rooms and the layout for our event. The staff work very hard and do a good job. The food was good, nothing spectacular but good. The snacks were good as well. Would definately... More

Nice place surrounded by great options. When having an event in Arlington you not only have your great venue, but resources for great off sites and breakouts. Stadiums, food and entertainment are all just a few miles away.
