Just a very nice place to have a convention. Plenty of space for large gatherings (1,000's), or for smaller room-sized events. Hotels are connected, there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Located in downtown, it is also right by Parkview Field. Top notch building.

Our company had a black tie at the Convention center. The prices were reasonable, the food was excellent, taste was good, and presentation was nice. The prime rib was tender and done just right. The service was average, but the servers were attentive. Thanks for a great event.

There was a National Dance Competition going on and it was FREE so we went and had a good time. This was just like the show on TV called Dance Moms with Abbey. We did see a lot of them Dance Moms and enjoyed watching the different styles of dancing

They thought of everything and kept things moving. Nice and clean. The ticket booth were open to purchase tickets for other events, which was a plus as well. Bathrooms were clean for as many people that were there.

The Convention Center was right accross the street from our hotel which was wonderful and convenant. If you did not want to walk out side you could also take the cat walks to center. The building had many bathrooms and was well maintained.

Numerous visits for meetings and conventions. Huge facility can accommodate large and small groups at the same time. Located within the Hilton and across from the Courtyard. Easy parking and walking downtown.

I have been there for meetings on a grand scale for work. The rooms were very spacious and food was very good. Staff on hand was very attentive and friendly. Went back for the holidays and decoration were very nice. We were able to take some really nice family photos

I've been to this convention center for a couple different events and I think it's a pretty nice place. It's clean and spacious, with both large event halls and smaller rooms. The building itself is located downtown, within walking distance of a few fast food and finer dining restaurants. The convention center has large windows, which both let in a... More

Big or intimate meeting rooms available. Great place to stay. You don't have to even go outside to visit the embassy theater. Plenty of fine dining nearby and the botanical gardens and Parkview stadium is across the street.
