The Waco Convention is a great place to host a convention or conference.. The people are nice, the place is kept clean. The only complaint is that they keep it too cold. Other than that it is a great space.

Thank you for the review, ronijofrazier! The offices are open from 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. The snack bar is only open during large events, but there are ten restaurants across Franklin Avenue, in addition to the Hilton's restaurant. Plenty of options!
