We are frequent visitors to the Columbus convention center, but this was our first time here. The difference was There were many more comfy seating areas, out of the main areas. That was nice to get away from all the girls and noise! The food stands were more cincy only. I loved that Larosas and skyline had stands during the... More

The Convention Center is just a regular Convention Center for the most part. I have been here for several events in the past and it is always well organized and has good signage so it is easy to get around. It feels however, big box, plain and corporate in most cases. Today, I was here for the 2014 Pink Ribbon... More

Convention Center is centrally located with lots of upper scale hotels within very short walking distance. The Center itself is very large and can certainly accommodate major conventions. Individual rooms are easy to find and temporatures in each of the spaces I was in was very comfortable - not too hot, not too cold. The facilities are clean and look... More

Went there for a convention and the layout was very easy to find the different rooms for the meetings. A little food court and visitors booth were available.

Attended a 3 day convention utilizing nearly the entire facility. It was fabulous. The bathrooms were almost always attended and well kept. Everything seemed to be in nice order. Electronics seemed to run smoothly. The food was also quite good. Pass the concession stand and go to one of the pop up vendors in the back of the exhibit hall-... More

The halls were huge and the decor impressive. The staff was courteous. The place is centrally located. The minus side was that the toilets could have been cleaner and the acoustic could be made to work better. The noise from the neighboring room disturbed the speakers in our room.

This place is located in an easy to reach area. The Millenium Hotel has an enclosed walkway to the Convention center. Other hotels are a very short walk. The Convention center is clean and appears relatively new inside. The downside to this place is horrible cell service inside. Good luck trying to look at your email, even sending a text!... More

Attended a convention here in August. This is a LARGE place as convention centers go (at least, of the ones that I have gone to). Three floors of meeting rooms. The staff was barely seen when not needed; and easy to find when they were needed. This is good. One concern is that the wi-fi connections seemed to be sporadic.... More

What more is there to say. They charge way to much for internet and cell coverage inside is almost nonexistent. Was here for a conference and that made working difficult.

This place was big. It was very clean. The food however was CRAZY expensive. I mean crazy!!! That was the part about it that sucked the most. Otherwise it's a nice place to have a convention.
