Wedding reception

We have been to several events at Century Center, primarily for wedding receptions and business functions. The catering was wonderful as was the outside scenery.

Been to hundreds of events at this place. Even saw Dizzy Gillespie play here in 1979!. What can one say, it is a large hall for rent.Seen better, seen worse. It's okay.

Good for small conference. There are only two halls, but both are large and well maintained. Staff and speaker areas are well appointed. I always look forward to the view of the St. Joseph River.

Nice facility connected to the DoubleTree by a covered walk way. Rooms are spacious and the employees /management of the center are great to work with. They are very flexible and love their city and building.

Unfortunately, the art gallery didn't open until noon, and we were too early, but nevertheless we enjoyed the view and the walk out to the island in the St Joseph River to see the salmon run. There was a wedding reception being set up and it looked like a fabulous place to have an event.

Rather is large inside but there is "nothing" to make it "special" to see other than for specific events. Location is great by the east raCE BUT THEN WHAT ?

I've been to the convention center a number of times. The place is massive, well constructed, simple no nonsense decor, and the best feature by far is the huge window overlooking the river. Numerous rooms are available for whatever you might need, from receptions to work parties to whatever. We went because DD had ISTEP testing for her online school.... More

Discovery Ballroom at the Century Center featured an outstanding facility for a 200+ guest event. Gorgeous appointments (lighting, standing bars, etc), excellent dance floor, and state-of-the-art sound and video systems helped make the event picture and sound perfect. Century Center support staff, and cooking star Chef Rory Bancroft made planning and executing the event a delight.
