“What a great place for a meeting or convention”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

My wife and I were in San Antonio for a business meeting. We stayed across the street in the Mariott and spent a lot of time at the Convention Center.

This is a great venue. It is very spacious and well kept. A lot of room and very convenient for all to use.

Excellent facility.

“This is a wonderful convention center”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I attended a very large Conference and found the place to be very clean and nice.
It's located wonderfully to many nice hotels and great restaurants.

This is a very Green Convention Center. I was very impressed with their efforts for waste and water conservation.

Hope I have something to attend here in the future!

“Great location”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

I didn't have to pay or reserve or otherwise create the convention so I can't say how it is from a business stand point but being a conventioneer I enjoyed it.

The location is great with Riverwalk right outside. Many food and drink options at your doorstep. A good number of hotels within an easy walk as well.

The rooms for the convention were comfortable and well attended. The bathrooms were clean and you didn't have to look far to find one. There should be a couple more options for coffee since there is always a long line at the Starbucks or the side coffee shop.

The one inexplicable oversight when they built this was no parking. That is right, no parking, how silly is that? Not even but for a handful of employees. I got that little fact when I asked about parking from one of the employees. Seems a bit silly, and was told the Hilton didn't have its own parking either.

There is a couple of sizable lots near by but it seems a oversight in my humble opinion.

If you go here for a convention make sure you have some time set aside to explore.

“way way too big”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

I go to many conventions, but am unused to walking what seemed to be a mile from ballroom B to C. And when there was a car show at the same time as our convention center, we could not use short cuts. On the positive side, the restrooms were great and there were many of them.
