I especially liked the low flowing pond with local water plants growing in it and the dolphins jumping out of it on the first floor. It runs the... More

Great location with tons of parking options but get there early if you want a great spot. So close to Old Dominon, we expected more traffic but the traffic control officers kept the crowds moving.

This is a very long building, so be prepared to walk. There are two escalators and a set of stairs in the middle. I only remember seeing one elevator There are other stairs, but hidden behind doors. The bathrooms were clean and modern. The meeting rooms were adequate, but due to their location huge gusts of air would blow in... More

The welcome center, which is right at the junction of where the expressway ends and the road into town begins. GREAT gals, VERY helpful, direct you right to the locations you want to visit. Without their help, I would not have found the locations I wanted to visit in the 4 horus I had to visit them.

Building is structurally beautiful, very modern and spacious, quite fascinating. Not quite as clean as hoped, also parking lot is a hangout for rowdy and rude crowd, so need to be careful.

Very nicely built building, WiFi jumpy could be much better, but free at least. Love the outside pond area. Super easy to get to from the beach area.

Came here recently for work. The building itself was very beautifully made and the design very sheek. But I should have brought better shoes with the amount of walking I didn't know I would be doing. Also the WiFi seems to cut out every few feet =( overall though it was nice and it accommodated everything to get the job... More

I recently was here for a conference. The facility is beautiful, location convenient, free parking plentiful and the guest services excellent, but the WIFI was mostly nonexistent and the state of the observation deck was not good. Every time I went to get in the wifi it would say the connections were full. The observation deck was covered in bird... More
