I attend a very large convention here every year and this place always delivers a quality venue. The food service is very good and I really liked the food court for lunch. Restrooms are always clean and well stocked. My only complaint and it is a big one is this place is always way too hot. Many of us wear... More

We attend a very large convention here every year for the last 10 years and it is always a great place to hold a large scale convention. Restrooms and food service are always clean and available. A/C at times can be too warm but property is convenient to many hotels. Hyatt, Hilton and Rosen Center are attached by sky-walkways.

I attended the auto show in the North concourse over Thanksgiving. The place is huge, so you need to park or be dropped off near the concourse where you are attending an event. I was at a hotel across the street from the South concourse and attended an event in the North concourse. It was a very long walk from... More

This convention center is huge. The convention that I was working at was in the west part. This made my hotel a far way away which I was not aware of in advance. There is a real lot of walking involved. Also, I work a lot of conventions, and the tear down staff here was the slowest of all the... More

This is by far the greatest convention center I've ever been to with the greatest conventions. only downside is that getting out of the parking lot is a cluster f! They really need to figure out the exiting situation when people don't leave on a flow.

This place is huge. If you are here for a large convention / expo put your walking shoes on. Meeting room catering was good and maintained. The restrooms were receiving attention, but not enough attention.

Depending on which concourse your convention is in may help you decide on which hotel to stay in. If your convention does not offer a shuttle you may wish to know which concourse you will be in before picking your hotel if you aren't a walker!

The convention center is up to any event that comes its way and I have attended many here. The staff are friendly and helpful, secure is sound, and the venue is clean. And, there is ample housing in the area. The one challenge is limited handicap parking. Florida is the land of retirees, so there are an abundance of handicap... More

Don't expect to get anywhere quick! This is the second largest convention center in the US. The largest is in Chicago. And don't wait if you feel a bathroom break coming on - the restrooms are scattered and in some cases - hard to find!
