Just came from McCormick place in chicago to here, here is much better. Right in downtown, hotels, restaurants, museum s are all walking distance, no shuttle or car needed it. Foods are great compared to many convention places, try the crab cake sandwich. Easy connetions to many conference rooms.

I went to a teachers' conference and was very impressed. The meeting rooms were clean and well set up. The main meeting areas were large and well staffed. The lunches they served to 5,000 people were surprisingly good and the wait times were good. This is a well managed place.

As a consultant to nonprofits and associations, I've attended a lot of conferences over the years. Baltimore, the city, has a lot to offer. It's an interesting place with a good arts and food scene. The convention center? Mediocre at best. Just seems like a place that needs a major refurb if it wants to stay in the game. The... More

The place is nice. Real nice. And it's great for all sorts of conventions, auditions, and more. I've been here several times but my biggest complaint is the fact that there is absolutely NO parking and all the local parking that is around is over $20. It's completely outrageous! Not to mention there's no complimentary wifi and the wifi you... More

The family was at the Convention Center for a cheer competition. The center is expansive and located in a convenient area of the harbor. The décor is beautiful. My husband stopped at several places to read the plaques and photograph the historic sites from each window. The inside was very clean, including the bathrooms. The different food stands were expensive.... More

Last year's car show was fantastic. Clean facilities, easy to read map of the show. We went on a Saturday but parking was plentiful, and it didn't seem too crowded even though we were told it was well attended.

Very nice location, and a pleasant walk from the hotel and after the show down to the inner harbor by the shops and the restaurants.

We really enjoyed our recent week-long convention in Baltimore. Prior to visiting, I had read several negative reviews warning not to venture outside the area near the convention center due to recent riots, unrest, crime, drug dealers and vagrants. But, I took daily walks around the area from the Baltimore Convention Center (BCC), to Oriole Park at Camden Yards, to... More

While attending our son's college graduation ceremony, we found the Baltimore Convention Center to be clean, accessible, and well staffed.
