We came here for a dance clogging convention for my son. This facility is very nice and clean. They keep the air conditioning arctic cold, so you may need to bring a sweat shirt or jacket. My wife was indoors here four different times (7 hours/day) and froze to death. And she brings a jacket! This location is great. Next... More

The much needed remodel is great. The flow of the spaces is nice. Location and abundance of rest rooms is better than most convention centers. It is a convenient walk from the Hilton and Courtyard. Great ob on the remodel!!

The Convention Center was a great selection for a venue for our State Recognition Days event. It was roomy for all the people and the restrooms were clean and didn't have to wait too long. Good parking and a nice fountain out front. Close to the suspension bridge for a nice walk.

The areas are quite large and comfortable for hosting conventions. If you are meeting upstairs, I would suggest parking behind the Hilton near the Freedom fountain to avoid climbing the stairs or the elevator. You walk right onto the second floor. The center is clean in both the main areas and the restrooms. It is possible to have more than... More

We had a clogging rally here. The wide-open spaces made it easy to get around, and workshops were easy to find. Great restrooms, central area roomy with plenty of room for vendors, exhibition hall is huge and nicely laid out. I was very impressed! Would have liked to see the concert hall.

Very accomadating! There were 7000 women and a few men there so they had all restrooms with the excption of one restroom designated as Women's so the lines moved quickly! That is important!

This facility will not accommodate the ABA Convention, or this like, but this completely updated and enlarged facility is truly "first class" for up to mid-sized events. A marked increase in bookings this past year reflects, not only the excellent facilities, but the increasing draw of nearby Baylor and Downtown Waco area attractions, restaurants, and museums.

I have attended a convention twice here. The convention center is clean and functional. Parking is plenty and free. Hotels and restaurants are within walking distance.

We stayed at The Comfort Suites on North 35. It was convenient to the Convention Center. The Hotel was the BEST!!!!! We were treated with royalty! They seemed happy that we were there. They smiled when we checked in. We are looking forward to our next visit!!
