Went to a fundraiser dinner at the Benton recently, and good to see it's still being used for many functions. Parking is convenient in the deck across the street. The dinner served was very good considering it was an event for almost 1000 people. Servers were very nice and efficient.

This is a pretty standard convention center, and performs best for large events. It is very convenient to all of the downtown amenities; hotels, restaurants, entertainment. Plenty of parking right across the street, accessible through an enclosed walkway.

Nothing special, nothing unique. It's a big hall with large spaces, spaces that can be divided into smaller spaces, restrooms, escalators, etc. It's just a convention center. Tunnels from the Marriott through the Embassy Suites make both hotels convenient options.

We took our daughter to the college fair and that was a mess. For the people that attended the place was miserable crowd and too hot. The air condition was either turned way down or broken the same as last year. The building is old and in need of updating

This place is nice for very large events. We usually bring 700-900 or more every two months and it is a nice venue to have a very large meeting. Building seems to be open most of the time when events are booked. Parking across the street and a weatherized walkway across the street so traffic is not an issue!!!

Great place for a Conference. Prices at the snack place was a little pricy. The eating places where near by and good. It was not hard to find

We came to the Benton Center for a church conference, and the facility was very nice. It is right in the heart of downtown W-S close to major hotels and restaurants. It was very clean and the staff was friendly.

Had quite a nice lunch served during a convention session. Bathrooms were convenient and clean. Great space. Escalators were off early in the morning, odd.

The Benton Center is a great venue for conferences. Location is good and easily accessible. Bordered by two major chain hotels---Marriott and Embassy Suites.
