Clean, well maintained and excellent location on the water front. Make sure to go out several times a day to enjoy the sunshine and the nice view. Variation of restaurants around the area.

Attended a large convention and most of the men’s restrooms were out of order. Lines and unsanitary conditions existed the entire show due to the lack of available restrooms. I am surprised the health department let them be open to the public under such conditions.More

This was definitely better venue than last year at the fairgrounds. It just need more eateries inside the venue. The parking garage was convenient and cheap ($9.50 all day).

A well maintained building with clean restrooms and spacious rooms suitable for big conferences. The view is stunning and you never get to run out of coffee as it has its own cafe and it is near a starbucks .

The cafe in the Convention Center really isn't that great. There is a Starbucks across the street in the Embassy Suites. The previous suggestion of Columbia since you'll have your car is the better option. Fast food? No... More
