Excellent meeting place for conventions. Excellent displays on periodic basis such as "History of the English Speaking Bible". Just a classy place to visit.

This also is a nice place with things to do in and around the building. It has taxi's and public transit for transportation. Many restaurants, bars, and stores are within walking distance

This was right across from the hotel and adjacent to convention/Duff Center. It has some fast food but some really cute, artsy shop with many Kentucky artists featured. If you are a wildcats fan you will find many shops to get your souvenirs and a great candy shop with free samples and friendly staff!

This is a superb location for a conference and events. Have visited for a number of non-profit events and also MMA events through the BlueGrass Brawl. Great facilities, nice staff, and even some stores in the main lobby with some fun art pieces.
