5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Good food options, big but not huge. Parking was a bit of a headache.

“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Being a new town to us I could complain about traffic or parking but it just wouldn't be true. Tom Tom got us with a half block and the parking on the front side is easy and accessible. The day we were there there was a huge outdoor festival and all kinds of other activities in this big college town and we still had no issues. Building is huge but with good directions once inside. Beautiful design and almost awe inducing. Columbus area should be proud! .

“Great for conferences!”

Nice clean facility. Rooms of all sizes for meetings and friendly staff make this a gret place to have your next meeting. Lots of activities near by also.

“Could of been better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

i liked the size of the place but what really annoyed me they barely any food left by 5:30pm We were at a wrestling tourney from 6am to 11pm and WHY would you run out of pretzels at 5:30pm HUH who does that, they menu items are overpriced too really 5 processed nuggets with 15 french fries for $7 bucks not a good look Ohio! To top it off there are NO area places to eat but overpriced dives This city is a bust no stores nothing, not looking forward to coming out next year

“How it is...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

I have been to this convention center many times over the years and after reading other reviews, I felt I needed to give the facts. Not only is this convention center huge, it is home of many major events. The Arnold Sports Festival, Ohio Star Ball, and the Midwest Haunters Convention just to name a few. How some reviewers can say this venue is not big enough for a large car show or major event is beyond me. The Columbus International Auto Show is held at this venue every year and takes up every exhibit hall available as well as the concourse, and a few other areas. The Greater Columbus Convention Center is over 1,700,000 square feet... not too shabby if you ask me. Complaints of it being "too big" is just mind blowing to me. It is a Convention Center... what do you expect? All in all... This venue is a venue the world comes to.
