A very nice venue located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. The hall is very spacious and has plenty of pay to park garages around it. It could use a little attention in spots. My daughter got on the elevator and her first word was sketchy. I agreed. Other than a few minor details a nice place and right in... More

The convention center is very nice. It would have been great if there had been a place to buy food other than Starbucks and the concession stand. There is ample parking but the way you have to pay for parking at the attached garages is extremely inconvenient. The line of people waiting to pay, at the self pay kiosk was... More

... then you would want to do it in this convention center. The place is great, smack in the middle of downtown Cincinnati. There is a lot, repeat, lot of rooms. The place is clean. The people are friendly, and efficient - I wasn't in the organizing committee, but others I knew were. And not seeing them scurrying about says... More

This was a Convention for the American Legion. The city was very clean and people friendly and helpful. The Convention Center was huge and all of the main meetings where held at the Convention Center. Easy to get to from Hotels near the area and could walk back and forth from the Hotel to Convention Center. Had a lot of... More

The convention center was a nice venue, it was laid out well and easy to negotiate. My husband and I were there for the American Legion Convention and for the most part the movement of people went well. The meeting rooms were spacious, well laid out and the staff were very accommodating. I just wish there were more places to... More

We were there for a convention and it was set up very nicely. Ate at the most of the places and found them all to be not worth the price. Greasy chicken, flavorless greens, even the hot dogs and famous Cincinnati chili dogs were bland and tasteless.
