Awful, awful, awful. I booked the parking through GlobalAirportParking. I filled out all of the information of departure, arrival, car information, flight info. When I got there, I had to give all of the information all over again because they were too lazy to copy the information off the booking form. Upon my arrival, I call to be picked up... More

I was apprehensive about how the parking situation would be for the convention center. Tips - the parking garage is part of the port so your car has to go through security. MAKE SURE each passenger has their license or ID. Also make sure you do not have a weapon in the vehicle. There is ample parking and a crosswalk... More

As convention centers go, from an out of town visitors perspective, I found it difficult to find evenc using GPS. The parking was good once you find the correct entry points. Sharing entryway with the cruise ships probably not a good idea. Once in the garage, there's ample well identified parking. The interior layout felt awkward for some reason.

This massive center was the perfect setting for our national conference! There were so many rooms and spaces made available! No matter the event there wasn't a bad seat in the place!

No complaints. The convention center was nice and the staff was friendly. The food could have been better.

I only gave this horrific place one star because there is not an option to rate it at ZERO stars. Everything about Thrifty and their customer service is TERRIBLE, AWFUL, HORRIFIC, POOR, SUBSTANDARD, INFERIOR and the list can go on and on. I tried renting from them twice and both experiences were awful. This experience involved a young man at... More

Facility is nice a big. Ample parking. We paid a max of $12.00 one day...think this is the max it can be. Nice bathrooms. Could use more food options but overall very pleased.

Spent two days at a function at the center and it is one of the best centers all year. With over 500 participants, they keep everything moving and actually keep the rest rooms spotless! My only issue is the $15 to park if you are there most of the day.
