Benton Convention Center

Benton Convention Center


I will be traveling to Winston-Salem in September, for a woodworking show at the Benton Convention Center. Is there a hotel that is physically connected to, or very close the the convention center?

And are the hotels that are very close the very expensive hotels? I really don't need any fancy or 5 star hotel for my stay, but I am willing to pay for location.

I will be on a very tight schedule, between travel from Pittsburgh, and trying to attend as many lectures and demos as possible at the show and returning to Pittsburgh to be back at work. I have not decided if I will travel by air or car yet.

Any suggestions about my trip are more than welcome.

Thank you,

There are 2 hotels across the street from the convention center - Embassy Suites and Marriott. There are other downtown hotels such as the Wingate Inn, but it's several blocks away. You can definitely walk it, but it would take a good 15 mins.
