Enjoyed the venue. Set up was excellent. Easy in and out but parking was kind of far. Validated parking so it was free. Very friendly staff everyone was helpful and courteous.

Located right on Main St. Rochester, this gathering facility holds all kinds of activities from Home and Garden Shows to Car Shows! There is always something to see or do at the Convention Center downtown. Check their website for upcoming events and enjoy the fun by attending!

Very nice to hold a business event in the atrium. The appetizers were wonderfully presented by the staff. Spacious and roomy, the tables were set up nicely along the wall of windows.

I have attended here for a few events. It is a good size to get around and the two hotels attached are good. I like the fact that I don't have to bring my winter coat with me because of the connectors between hotels. Wear layers. Air vents are fickle.

Very nice facility accommodating all sizes of meetings and events. Situated in downtown Rochester overlooking the Erie Canal with grand staircases and multiple views of the river. Staff is very courteous and efficient. We have had several meetings and/or events at this facility and have never been disappointed with the service and facility.

Thank Ron C
