“This is what Raleigh needed for a long time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have been several times, but never had the opportunity to write a review. I really like the "new" Raleigh convention center. It is what Raleigh needed for a long time... hopefully, more and more conventions and other activities keep coming...

“A well run maze”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

I had not thought of writing a review of a convention center, but reading the other reviews and thinking back over 40 years of conferences, meetings, etc. in rooms too hot or too cold, often dirty with too much noise from nearby meetings i came to appreciate the Raleigh convention center. It is clean, well lighted with comfortable meeting rooms and public spaces. It is a maze on multiple levels and for the first two days I felt like I was in the old computer game, "Adventure". Once I figured out the right combination of stairs, escalators, and elevators it was a breeze. A great venue for any large meeting.

“ask for directions!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Nice facility, but room numbering is totally confusing and escalators do not go to all levels. Ask for directions, the fine folks at the information desk are happy to help. To get Raleigh free Wi-Fi, you really do have to go outside.
