“Professional Convention Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

First time in SA for a couple of years. Convention Center staff were very attentive. Like the spacious coffee and snack area in the middle of the convention center. Very professional place to hold a convention or trade show.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

I really enjoy attending conventions here. Although very large, it is adjacent to the Riverwalk, and is nearby to La Villita, and the Riverwalk Mall. You can get off the River boats at the convention center! It has a wonderful performing arts center, and the main exhibit areas are HUGE!

“Very, very big”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Visited this center for the TMS 2013 convention. The walking distance between venues inside is long, even for a Norwegian. Free wifi was scarce. Starbucks coffee was available for purchase: the free coffee was awful.

“Very nice facility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We spent 4 days here at a convention and were very comfortable. The surroundings were pleasant, sound system good and had lots of room for displays and registration. Having it connected to the Grand Hyatt where we were staying was an extra bonus!

“Average Convention Center”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Our meeting room on the lower level was freezing. The a/c ran constantly and was noisy making it hard to hear during our meeting. A few wall outlets for computer hookup -- not enough for a large group. Small coffee shop on site serving Pepsi products (I am a diet coke drinker). The food provided during the exhibition was pretty good. It is located right on the River Walk.
