“Huge...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I have seen many big conference centers, BUT this one is HUGE!!!! It was so big that taxi drivers asked whether I was going to the West wing or East wing, and if you did not know where to go, you were lost for quiet a while!!!

“A "great" place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

What a giant place were you lose yourself. It's to big to be a nice and difficult to find the right area in the several buildings.

“Excellent Venue, but wear comfortable shoes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This is truly a remarkable venue for a conference, but be sure to bring comfortable shoes! It's HUGE and you'll likely end up walking miles (literally) if you conference is large enough. The rooms were well-appointed, and it's very evident their porter staff care about what they're doing because they were always clean, including the well-trafficked bathrooms!

“It is an ok venue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I think there are certainly better places to hold a conference. No real problems, but nothing extra ordinary.

“Excellent conference location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

McCormick Place is a really great conference location. It's huge...with and east side and a west side. It's super clean and a really beautiful setting. Was just here for IRCE that had about 9000 attendees. Good space, well organized staff etc. Always look forward to coming here on business. There is even a Hyatt attached to it.
