Participated in a show in Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. Loved that it was close to O'Hare Airport and very good selection of hotels to choose from just around the convention center.

We enjoyed attending the convention for a dance competition. Very spacious. VERY disappointed in their outrageous prices for drinks, Dancers need water Nd they were charging $3.50 for small bottle water! Same price as their soda or lemonade. Many parents were complaining about this,

We love coming up for various shows at the convention center. The travel show in the winter is our favorite way to break up the cold and dream.

The facility is a bit run down and "sticky" feeling. Could use a good cleaning. The bar was poorly stocked and the first few selections were: "sorry...we don't have that anymore."

My only complaint is that they hosted another convention at the same time, in some of the same space. At the same time as Comic-con, there were huge herds of pre-teen girls running around screaming at some pre-teen male internet "celebrities". It was quite annoying.

This is a huge convention & conference place that competes with McCormick Place. A lot of smaller conferences. It is convenient to the airport and it has plenty of hotels and restaurants all around.

We were here for the travel expo twice...2011 and a previous year. Big place and depending on your reason for being there business or pleasure this place has room to accommodate all your needs and info for sure. There are plenty of near by places to dine to suit your needs also.
