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.

The staff are great to work with when planning events at the convention center. Parking and lodging are convenient and there are many great restaurants within walking distance. The facility is easy to navigate and has great open spaces.

Enjoyed the Christmas for the City Event, but the venue really needs to be updated. Decor is outdated.

The convention center is nice and very easy to access. I like that the layout is wide open and not cramped. I think that they, could do better on food selection and pricing. Overall a nice place to have a convention.

My hotel was not too far from the BCC; although, shuttle service was provided. The BCC was spacious; the restrooms were clean, which is important, and the staff was very accommodating.

Have not been to Winston-Salem in almost 40 years and found myself with a friend at convention in the Benton Center. Impressive facility for a town of that size. Easy to navigate, well situated. There are reasonable hotels all around with parking and covered access. Can see this would be an excellent site for any number of "convention type" activities.... More
