Attended a volleyball tournament and found this venue to be one of the nicest. Very handicap accessible and comfortable.

The Cleveland Convention Center is modern and well laid out. Food service was quick and the quality a little better than most conventions centers but then very hard to prepare for and serve over 3,000ppl at the same time. Great restroom access and SPOTLESS Location to center of town was fantastic!

Just about in the center of everything in downtown Cleveland, near Terminal Tower and the lake. Several major hotels are connected to or across the street from this convention center.

Attended the ABA convention and the center was great! Great staff, mediocre food - excellent layout and easy to get around. Staff kept the bathrooms clean and refreshed.

Cleveland welcomed the ABA convention with open arms and smiling faces. The staff was excellent. The food was very GOOD for a convention of over 3500 people. Everything was clean and well taken care of. You can tell the staff really cares about what they do. Kudos to Cleveland!

This center is amazing in that I never got lost and it was super easy to navigate from room to room. Out event looked and ran super smoothly. The downside...the convention food was awful. It was one of the worst foods I have had at a convention. The servers were not informed and actually a little rude towards us. I... More

First of all, this place is massive! Pictures just don't do it justice. It is highly maintained, plenty of spacious areas for all sorts of events. Plenty of escalator options and elevators to move from one floor to another easily. Close parking lots and garages for a short walk to the building. Its' interior design is very innovative and high... More
