We stayed there for three days. The hotel room was nice and clean. The "heated" walkway was very cold. You will need to bring shampoo and conditioner.

A great location with a well organized support staff. Every event and meeting I have attended here has been well organized, easy to access, and a delight to attend.

I've been to many conventions here over the years and it is plenty large enough to host even massive events like the Arnold Expo. Though there was always a parking problem (not enough) they are building new parking garages that will make it far better. Currently there is a lot of construction going on the side and behind the convention... More

This is from a host perspective. Staff good to work with, food very good and responsive to your needs. Renovation caused some challenges but the staff was eager to make everything right,

This facility is extremely large and can handle numerous different events at one time. It is currently undergoing renovations that I assume will make it that much better. It is linked to the Hyatt Regency Columbus making that hotel a convenient location to stay at if attending an event. I found the speakers at the seminar to be a little... More

For starters, there were ample on-site food options and the North Market was just a stone's throw away. In addition, the convention center itself is huge and easily supported the multiple events that were occurring simultaneously. It's just a convention center... More

Spending 8 days in a convention center is not the most stimulating environment, but Columbus has provided one of the most comfortable and easy to navigate centers I have been to in years. The staff were friendly and offered assistance.

First, most likely you don't really have a choice when going to a place like this. You're either in a show, want to see a show, that is in this location. It's not like you're picking a hotel to stay at. I was here as an exhibitor for a show. There was a lot of construction going on when I... More
