This is the most awful venue we have ever experienced! So filthy everywhere! These were the worst bathrooms I have EVER seen! I've seen truck stops that smelled better! We went for cheerleading competition and I can honestly say that we will not be returning next year! We didn't see any staff trying to clean the common areas. Food and... More

This was our second time attending a NCA Cheerleading competition at this convention center, and for the second year in a row I can say, nothing has improved. Actually, it may have gotten worse. My daughter's events began very early, 6:15am arrival to compete at 7:40am. There were no concessions open that early, and the only coffee stand had at... More

Just were there this weekend for NCA Cheer Nationals. Parking was horrible, and traffic was ridiculous. They had barriers up and there was also construction going on. Food was expensive, just a bottle of water was 4.25

The convention center was very nice however was very confusing. We walked from our hotel and struggled to find the Clarence Muse Cafe Theatre inside of the convention center due to the lack of signs. We talked to different staff who didn't seem to know where to go however a janitor eventually showed us the way. We finally made it... More

I was pleased with the openness of this building. We were there for a convention and it seemed that the facility was more than up to the chalenge

I would never recommend having any kind of event here. I was not impressed. It was difficult to get to with all the construction and was not easily accessible for large conferences. They seemed to be rushing around trying to make sure everything was in order but overall I was not impressed.

I had an opportunity to spend a week attending a convention there. I spent most of my time in section D, which appears to have been updated while the next door Omni came online. I did attend one formal catered luncheon in the facility, the food and service was very good. Like any convention facility, there pricing model is designed... More

Even though the place is huge, it was extremely clean and smelled good, the staff was amazing with making sure we got to the right place, they knew how everything was set-up for our conference, and they were very nice. We will see you next year!
