“Large place, lot of walking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

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. In addition, the Convention did not give us the password to log into the wi-fi for the days we were there. We had to find out by word of mouth.

The meeting rooms were adequate, but sometimes the doors would close too loudly and disturb the speakers.

A little more signage could be helpful. I got lost a couple of times. There was layout maps of the floors in several places, but a few more could be useful.

“its a convention center”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Big place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

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.

“Karate Tournament”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Didn't care for the parking circus. There are plenty of places to park...just depends on what you want to pay. It is reasonable. I paid between $7.00 to $10.00 for all day. Leave early from the hotel and get downtown before the morning rush. It should be ok then.

“Nice Facility”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

The facility was very nice and spacious, but the rooms were always too cold. There were several crosswalks from different hotels to the building so you did not neccessarily have to go outside to reach the building.
