Convention center. Pretty exterior. Interior uninventive and floors are hard on the feet for the endless expanses of walking.

Didn't stay in hotel for the event but the meeting rooms were comfortable in temperature and seating. Wish they had water in more locations or with larger cups. Vegetarian food selections were tasty and creative.

Attended a seminar at DeVos Place last week, it was one of the best conference centers that I have been to over the years. Excellent staff and food. It's a slight hike from Amway Grand but its all in skyways. Would very much recommend this...More

Just went to the Sound of Music and Cinderella. Both experiences were amazing. We had less expensive seats but were amazed with the view and the sound! Parking was easy-right across the street (Monroe). I would HIGHLY recommend this venue for any offering.

Have seen a variety of shows/ performances here. In my opinion there is not a bad seat in the house. Comfortable seats, too.

Anyone ever sit in one of the last rows in balcony seating at the DeVos Performance Hall for plays? If so, were they worth it?
