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.

I recently attended a convention at this center and it is enormous in size. They have a sit down "café" at the back of the center but once you exit to eat at the café you have to go clear around the building to get back inside as they did not allow entry from the café only exit.

Attended a business convention, the venue was your typical convention center. The convention center needs to invest the money in seating for the food area as the only seating was reserved by companies for their employees/customers. The food on site was not only over priced, it honestly wasn't even worth it. Some food seamed as if it had been left... More

Catering on site is average at best. Transport around the hotels is good. WHY ARE THEY STILL CHARGING FOR WIFI AT $10 PER DAY?????

Only problem would be hotel is in industrial area with limited restaurants within walking distance so vehicle is necessary for any real nightlife.

This was our first trip to the convention center and Comic Con. It was my husband, 13 year old son, our 6 month old and myself. It was very hard to find parking but we finally did. The convention center itself lacked baby changing stations in the restrooms that we went in. Other than that, it was one of the... More

The convention center was huge! Very nice outside, and room for so much on the inside. Very well laid out though, so we never got lost. There was so much going on at Comic Con, but it was easy to find it all.

My friends and I attended the Wizard World Chicago Convention 22nd, 23rd, and 24th of August. Saturday night my friends and I were subjected to petty harassment by Rosemont police officers. We pulled out of the lighted parking garage after seeing a movie. My friend noticed he needed to turn his lights on. Probably had them off about 5-10 seconds.... More
