Went here for a large conference. Lots of room. They are getting ready to update this place which is good. The sound system in most of the rooms kept messing up for the speakers. The temperature is always Antarctic cold for this conference. The large rooms they used for vendors and lunch both were very dark and depressing. Better lighting... More

I have attended several concerts here and I have to be totally honest and say the sound system is very disappointing. I think some of it is related to the way the stage is positioned for different groups. There is a major renovation coming so hopefully that will take care of the problem.

This facility is smaller - view of the play was great. The biggest distraction during this amazing play was the freezing temperature of the air conditioning! Most people were dressed for the warm temperatures of the lovely evening!

My wife and I had a great experience at this concert. The staff were there to help us not to get in our way of having a great time. Things were over priced, that is expected. We had a great time and felt safe while still being in a big crowed. Other venues could take lessons from Charleston Civic Center.

I was here for a conference during some of the coldest weather this month. It was absolutely freezing in all of the conference rooms and halls. It was so cold that my nose was frozen! There needs to be more vending options, most of the machines (2 of the 5 machines I saw) wouldn't even work! We also froze walking... More

We go here occasionally for a concert. Relatively easy to get to with ample parking. Staff is always friendly and eager to help.

My cousin played here for States. Good venue. Great seating. Just wish they had the escalators working. I'm on oxygen and made it hard to walk up very steep steps.

I attended a concert in September and found it to be an awful facility. To start with, the line to get into the place was unacceptable. Everyone who enters has to pass through a medal detector and this line does not move. I have been to concerts all across the nation and this was by far the slowest entrance procedure... More
