This was a great location for a conference. It was well kept and the staff were very helpful. Please note this place is massive! It took a second to get used to the room/ space naming convention. I'd recommend for events.

Right in the heart of downtown Austin, the convention center is a great place to hold an event for <5000 people. There are escalators, plenty of meeting space and great access to downtown Austin bars, nightlife, shopping, etc.

I attended a conference at the Austin Convention Center. It's a very nice place. It's quite large and the conference rooms were nice and accommodating for the size of the conference we had. Rest rooms were very clean and well kept. I would definitely recommend it if you need a large venue for any reason.

As with so many convention centres, the Austin Convention Centre is a large concrete place with little to no character of its own. Large event spaces with a large number of smaller meeting rooms are sprawled out over multiple levels of apce that just looks the same - dull and drab. One major thing - just why do all the... More

Good location, with good transport options into and out of the area. The venue is really well appointed for the business conference scene. The staff and security were great, and have enjoyed the visit.

I am here a few times a year. The facility itself is great, but people always get lost trying to find the mezzanine floor. Finding the right elevator or stairs is a trick for that. It's also a long walk from the hotel side on the north to the ballroom A area since there is no cut through. They have... More
