We had 4 burritos after marathon check in. Very overpriced for what it was and not everything available eg guacamole. Rice over-cooked and dried out so very hard. No sign of anything green to enjoy. Staff pleasant. Won’t return.

Visited recently during a business conference. The venue seems in good shape with several restaurants on-site and hotels within walking distance. This is a conference center, nothing extravagant to say about it.

Hi Anna, I'm sorry, I have no idea. I was just a visitor to an event myself. I'm sure you can get in touch via their web site though. Peter
