“Nice center but overpriced food that's NOT worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2011

I went here for a convention and paid quite a bit for the food. Do not eat here. Go outside and find a place. The salad bar.charged per PLATE not by weight. So if you decide to buy a 15 dollar salad build a jenga tower with the letttuce
The center itself was really nice

“" A very Professional Convention Center "”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

The Walter E. Washington Convention Center is one of the best that I/we have been to. It is a very modern beautiful large building. This past July we attended the Nasft/Fancy Food Show during a modest heatwave (temps around 100'F & high humidity levels) in Washinton DC . The Temperature in the entire center was delightful/cool on every day we attended. What a pleasure! As for the staff of the center, everyone we encountered was very polite & professional, from the coat check staff to the concierge/welcome center staff. The entire convention center was very well lit & clean, from the public areas to the rest rooms. Within walking distance from many hotels and/or neighborhoods. Looking foward to attending next years show there.
