“Clean but expensive parking”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Easy to park, but cost is high. Too high at $10 (that was event price, not regular price which is higher). The building, like all convention centers, is huge, so very long walk from car park to exhibit hall. Probably very difficult for elderly or handicapped. Building inside is clean and bright (well lit). Bathrooms very clean. Food at concession stand was HORRIBLE! And, of course, over priced.

“Fairly New Building - Providence is coming along”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

The convention center is a fairly new addition to the providence Trio. Providence is a nice city offering quite a bit of life in a small area. There a plenty of interesting restaurants, bars, clubs, theaters, etc. in a very small spot. The convention center is connected to the Weston which is connected to the providence place mall. You could spend the day in that area between the mall, whatever is going on at the convention center and the restaurants and bars either connected to or right on the same block as the mall. I highly recommend the auto show, beer tasting and pet show.

“Cheerleading Convention”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

What was so good about this location was how close food courts and restaurants were without going outside.
