Anywhere you drive downtown, go early because traffic cops at attractions make it worse. Park across the street in the underground. Look for the blue "P" for parking anywhere downtown. About $20 for the day. The center is big and beautiful. Information desks with intelligent people helpful to find your event. Sometimes more than one event going on. Always organized ticket sales. Bathrooms always clean. Car and bike shows are super turnout friendly crowds. Go weekdays for fewer crowds. Lots of walking inside to see everything. Food court and beverages in the back are expensive but convenient.

I've been to convention centers all over the US and this is the cleanest one I have ever seen. The maintenance staff must be the best around. The bathrooms were spotless, as was everywhere else. The food options are great especially Faithfully Sweet. It is in a great location with hotels close by and another going up next spring. Easy to get around, helpful staff. Very impressive.

The convention center is HUGE! Nice accommodations for larger groups. Location great, you can walk to a variety of restaurants and shops. On the bus line, near the train, cabs and several hotels.

Plenty of room to host a large group. Close to everything a traveler needs. Buses, Taxi, and Metro at the front door.

Have been here celebrating my sorority's 100th anniversary for past 4 days. The convention center and the city have pulled out all the stops to make us feel welcome. Since there are over 30,000 of us here, (no that is not a typo), I want to give a heart felt thanks to the all I have had interactions with, from the ticket takers in the metro booths, taxi cab drivers, restaurant waiters and waitresses and the convention center staff. Your patience, professionalism and acknowledgement of why we are is heart warming. You folks know how to host a celebration!
