Building is very nice and updated, and staff was very friendly. We attended Brick Universe Lego fan convention. Very clean location. Parking deck was horrible to get in and out of!

Visited this Convention Center for a Comic convention. The Center is connected to the Raleigh Marriott City Center so if you are attending a event, this would be place to stay.
