Convention center is dated.

Went to a conference and found the rooms just average. You will need your GPS to find things. The food was just average. The service was average.

It's too run down. Too worn out looking. Price to have tour is too high. There were other buildings not in use. Why? Parking awful. Pretty park. Historical park. Pathetic convention center.

The "convention center" is in the basement of a cheesy casino. Although the casino was recently "renovated" the Convention Center looks as though it hasn't had a nickle put into since it was built 50 years ago. The bathrooms were awful.

We participated in the Antique Home and Craft Show. Everyone working there went out of their way to be helpful and to make our experience as good as possible.

My husband and I attended the Home Show at the VF Convention Center- My advice is to RUN away from this event. We had hoped to attend to just get some ideas for some remodeling we wanted to do; instead we felt as though we were being held captive in a basement by overly aggressive salespeople. Truly, it was awful... More

Pacific & prime restaurant - very overpriced. Be careful of menu descriptions - they do not give accurate description of what you actually will get.

I made reservation on 5/29 through hotels.com. I made the payment of $512.79 immediately of course. I have stayed there from 6/16 - 6/21. The facility itself is OK. Since I was there for my son's camp so during the day I stayed in the room working. The wifi internet basically is none, kept disrupted. We have to use the... More

It's hard to separate the convention center from everything else as it's really like one big package. The location is great with Valley Forge Park just up the road and the King of Prussia Mall just down the road. Quality restaurants are less than a 5 minute ride if you choose not to dine in the hotel/resort. There is a... More

Not worth the trip there. Why pay that much for a DJ ? It's not a NYC club. Meanwhile, soccer teams are checking in to the hotel upstairs.
