Seats are narrow. Lots of steps. Not enough bathroom locations (although there are plenty of stalls). A little difficult to know which door to go in. So, it's like any other stadium.

I've been to many many shows and things at the DECC my whole life and never had a bad experience. I go to the Shrine Circus annually, and I've seen concerts and comedians there as well and it's always a good time and the venue is kept clean enough and the food is excellent too!

Although my trip was business related, I can definitely see this convention center used for so many things, including wedding receptions. The rooms were elegant and the menu sublime. I recommend the location for conferences and/or trainings. There were only two criticisms that I had, the room partitions separating one presenter from another were not an acceptable quality. They did... More

My son and I recently attended the "Now & Then" performance and were thrilled with our experience. Having only ever attended the Minnesota Orchestra at Orchestra Hall (which we love), this experience felt a little more intimate. The facility was lovely, the director engaging and the audience, appreciative and respectful of the performers. I'd go back!

We were here for our grandkids archery tournament. Lots of walking but the parking was great. Very reasonable fee for parking and we could leave and come back and did not have to pay again.

The DSSO (Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra) is sure to please anyone who enjoys symphony music. The selections, the musicians, the singers, etc. are all top notch! My husband and I plan an annual trip to Duluth and we schedule it around a symphony concert--we've been doing this for greater than 5 years and we have had a wonderful experience each... More

We were here for a robotics competition in which our high school team participated. They need more signage as it was a tad difficult to find our way around. Parking was also confusing. The arena itself is nice and comfortable. Not nearly as nice as arenas in the TC

A nice place to attend a conference and whether staying at downtown hotel or one in canal park, both ways are easily accessible and easy walk. Lunches and coffee breaks served here are always good quality. I usually leave my car at the hotel and walk over, but you can park close by at a cost of only $5/day. Bayside... More

We stayed at the Pier B hotel/ resort. It is a short walk and you don't have to worry about parking!! I was surprised at how reasonable their beverages were! Bathrooms are always an issue at any venue!!! It was well organized, except for the souvenir areas, only 2!!!???? Understaffed!!!

Pay for parking is kinda lame as it's not like the place is hurting for space. It's wide open down there. Plus the "DECC" is so large and it connects to a new arena so your not sure where to park or where the DECC starts and ends or where the new arena begins or where to enter the building... More
