“For a "Small" City, It's Just Fine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

I have been going to the Dayton Convention Center for many different things since I was a kid, and for a smaller city, with really not too much going on anymore - it's a good venue. Clean, nice staff, pretty good security (which is needed), hotel across the street if you need it, and decent parking with indoor walk-ways. I think that the only real drawback to the Dayton Convention Center is the lack of restaurants around the center. Spaghetti Warehouse is withing walking distance, but the food/service there can be hit or miss, and since it is one of the very few downtown Dayton (sit down and be served) restaurants left and near the convention center, it is often crowded.

“Free Thanksgiving Day Dinner--no ticket required!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

The DCC is always clean and in spite of many exhibits, spacious. The restrooms are always safe due to the high level of security at the Center. Parking is easy since their is a garage associated with the Center. Enjoy!

“Dayton Convention Center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Located in the very center of downtown Dayton. Connected by
an overhead, enclosed walkway to a hotel and easy walking
distance from any hotel downtown. Indoor parking garage across the street and can be accessed without going outside.
Large facility.

“Nice on the inside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

We had the opportunity to visit the convention center today during the annual World Affair. This was the first time we have visited in a decade. The entrance and lobby areas were very clean and welcoming. I like it that the exhibition area is not very far from the main lobby. The formal presentation areas were updated and easy to locate. I was extremely disappointed with the adjacent parking garage. It looks run down, the stair wells (and many other places) smell terrible! The door we went went out, on the ground level, we could not use to go back up to our car. The sign on the door directed us all the way across the street (and WAY out of our way) to get back into the garage. This IS NOT safe or logical! The garage situation left a very bad taste in my mouth!
