Typical meeting and wedding venue

Nothing remarkable. I have been to a number of events here, and they were okay. Very large crowds will have to watch proceedings on monotors

Enjoyed the venue. Set up was excellent. Easy in and out but parking was kind of far. Validated parking so it was free. Very friendly staff everyone was helpful and courteous.

Rochester Riverside Convention Center is a very nice facility in downtown Rochester, NY. There are many conference rooms and a large auditorium as well as large open areas suitable for receptions. Another nice feature is that both the Rochester Hyatt Hotel and the Radison Riverside Hotel have walkways connecting them to the convention center for easy access and no need... More

I was here recently for the Flower City Comic Con and I was here for the auto show a couple of years ago. For weekend events, the parking structure across the street has good access to the building and there is good parking on the roads and bridges (however if parking on the bridge to the south you do have...

Located right on Main St. Rochester, this gathering facility holds all kinds of activities from Home and Garden Shows to Car Shows! There is always something to see or do at the Convention Center downtown. Check their website for upcoming events and enjoy the fun by attending!

Very nice to hold a business event in the atrium. The appetizers were wonderfully presented by the staff. Spacious and roomy, the tables were set up nicely along the wall of windows.

I have attended here for a few events. It is a good size to get around and the two hotels attached are good. I like the fact that I don't have to bring my winter coat with me because of the connectors between hotels. Wear layers. Air vents are fickle.

Very nice facility accommodating all sizes of meetings and events. Situated in downtown Rochester overlooking the Erie Canal with grand staircases and multiple views of the river. Staff is very courteous and efficient. We have had several meetings and/or events at this facility and have never been disappointed with the service and facility.

I was very impressed with Justin the Greeter at the Convention Center. I had 4 different interactions with him. I found him very professional, helpful and friendly, decidedly a positive face for the Riverside CC. I spent 2 solid days in the Lilac Room for a class and the temp control was perfect, very well kept. The only draw backs... More

Hotel so so, not the best place to have large groups of kids. Business location so most things like Tim Hortons opened 8-4 and were closed on Sundays. Most things were a drive away not within walking distance. Not the best part of town either. Elevators slow even though there were 4. Under ground parking a pain. Old building narrow... More
