We were there for a meeting of the Extra Milers Club. It only lasts three hours. The most important feature is the garage next door. (We come from Philadelphia where parking is a hassle.) The garage is connected by a skywalk. That makes for safety and weather protection. The other nice feature was that we went across the street to... More

I planned an annual hobby club's convention here. The staff was the best group I had ever worked with. Whatever we needed, they found for us. One staffer had a fabulous imagination, incorporating our themes into two objects that they donated to us to help us raise funds. Absolutely a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this venue for planners.

There is also a parking garage/ramp connected by an over-road walkway. Outside within walking distance is a... More

My two grandchildren modeled for this company and only one in audience. So I was by myself but my daughter and children were in the back. The lady that worked for the Grand Wayne talked with me a while. I was waiting on it to open its doors. She was kind. The place was clean and restrooms were clean as... More

The building itself is lovely with sleek, clean lines. Well maintained and a nice refuge when its hot outside.

We had a convention in Ft. Wayne (250 + people), and it was held in the Grand Wayne Convention Center. The facility was wonderful, and the people were very helpful.

Went here for a convention, but it is also a beautiful location to walk through if you are spending time downtown in fort Wayne.

The convention center is just beautiful. The large windows are very lovely. The rooms are new and comfortable. The restrooms are conveniently located. I parked across the street in the public parking, no problem.

The only thing keeping this from a higher rating is the horrible parking situation. We had a weekend full of Dance Intensives and the time it takes to get out of the parking garage is horrible. The street parking is almost non existent. Such a really nice facility but HORRIBLE HORRIBLE Parking systems.
