“Perfect for the conference!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

I have been at the NCC or the past four days attending an industry conference. The facility is perfect for the event that we attended as 90% of attendees stay on sight and there are some neat perks of staying at the NCC including meals being provided and beverage facilities all around the complex. Whilst its not what I would want if I was travelling with family it is perfect for business!

Here you can find all you need for a good business meeting, event or gathering. If you are looking to keep everybody under "one roof" then this is the way to go. You have lodging, meeting rooms, food ( not the best one).

Don't think you can just walk out and find another place to eat, even though there are, it will take you a good amount of time walking to get there. If you are driving, then go for it.

It is the second time I come to this place and Even though the rooms are not the best (not spacious and or luxurious) as other places. It has the basics to keep you confortable.

Hope one day they upgrade to make it more "hommy". But again, you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: If you are looking to be more than just a place to sleep, then choose a suite.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

So I had a to attend a mandatory work training event at the National Conference center in Dec. of 2012. I will do my best never to go back. First of all, the buildings are set up in a very confusing layout. Navigating them was difficult at best. Next, the rooms were so small, I am surprised they offer them without "blushing." Aside from their size, myself and a number of other colllegues all experienced bugs in our rooms. Stink bugs, lady bugs, water-bugs, etc. Terrible and disgusting. The in room air conditioner cycled every few minutes, it was loud, and did not allow for a great sleep, along with the on-all-night hallway lights beaming around the door. If I wanted a night-light, I would have brought my own. The bar on campus is way overpriced, and quite outdated. Finally, the cafeteria was completely overcrowded, the food was luke warm, bland, and the lines were awful. I will not got back, and cannot recommend this place.

I went here for a conference over 6 months ago-but I still think my review would be accurate. This is a big conference center. It is huge in general, but the cool thing is that the rooms are small-meant for one person. I thought that was neat. Food is buffet style for each meal but they have a huge array of choices. Friday night that had a wonderful steak/shrimp set up. I mean, it was really good. Tea and Coffee are every where. Cool snacks set up if your group chooses to do so-ours did! ONLY draw back to this place, is that it is easy to loose where you are. It is so big and there are tunnels underground to get you around, that it is very easy to loose your bearing-and I think everyone does. I just kept asking questions-which way, and such-to the people who were standing there waiting to help. I think that the place knew their short fall. In the evening however-the people were not there and you were on your own. Anyway-that is the only set back. Took a walk down the hill. All kinds of buses running when it is busy-we went when it was not so. I would go back in a sec-really enjoyed this conference.

The facility was once owned by Xerox and is designed to provide a comfortable, distraction-free training and / or conference experience. The facility is completely self-contained including fitness center and cafeteria. Walking trails provide excellent opportunity to enjoy fall color!
This is a great value for your conference as it is all inclusive. Evening excursions provide guests an opportunity to be shuttled to nearby Outlet Mall , Traditional Mall and Wine Tasting event on the weekends. (shuttle fees $10 to $15 per person). Shuttle to and from airport provided for nominal fee - no need to rent a car!

Room Tip: Rooms are generally assigned based upon your conference and or event. Food is located in the NORTH...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I was speaking at a conference being held at the center. I was given a "guest" room in the North Building, 5th floor with a decent view. The room was appointed okay. It had a strange layout wherein there was some wasted spaces, but a big living room and two flat panel televisions.

The room was clean.

The bed had clean and crisp linens, a ditch in the center of the mattress from being old and worn. The shower is small and could be bigger especially the way the room is laid out and since they don't use a curved shower curtain rod the curtain keeps hitting you.

There were two air conditioners in the room. Only one worked well, the other made strange noises and didn't cool the area of the room that you slept in. It was walled off just enough to be hot while the living room would be nice and cool.

The staff were curious and kind, but they didn't look clean cut.

The wifi doesn't work in the rooms because these buildings are like something out of the x-files. They have huge thick walls, cafeteria style dining, and its "strange". It feels like a weird government experience where you have some "nice" stuff but its still a institutional type structure.

I have it overall a three. I don't like being places that feel like a prison facility that has been revamped.

I am giving this place 2 stars in spite of the fact that the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the wedding I attended was very smoothly run with a very good dinner/reception following the service ...

... however ....

… I am giving it two stars because I would never even think of staying the night here again. The rooms are located in concrete bunkers that seemed to have been designed by a graduate of the Soviet School of Public Accommodation. Each of the hallways is stark and depressing and all look exactly alike... you need a building specific map (available at the desk) otherwise you're in big trouble. At least one of the buildings is accessible through a subterranean labyrinth where the ubiquitous concrete has been painted a uniform institutional white (also the way to some guest facilities) ... be sure to avoid it if you have depression issues.

The rooms were clean, but rather dated and run down with an after-construction bathroom plopped into the middle of the room that created a very disjointed aspect. The whole room experience was rather unpleasant.

To reiterate, the staff made the best of what they have here, but the buildings are neither inviting, convenient nor comfortable. I won't be back.

Room Tip: Choose a room at another hotel.
