  • Every day - filthy, smelly bathrooms ; missing paper towels - counters wet - the worst ! Where to sit.... the floor — where to buy food ... 2 vendors on day 1 and less than 5 in court area...  more »
  • Attended the RV show this weekend, easy access to parking. $20.00 for the day of the show. The screening to get in was easy and fast. Ample access to the show floor, bathrooms, and food stations.  more »

  • Was here for a conference and I had a great time. It is conveniently located near the South station and Chinatown. The airport is also fairly close. The food at the convention center is pretty terrible, but that has been the case with all convention centers in my experience. The place was always clean, the directions to get around within the convention center were clear and frequent, and it is fairly impressively built.
  • Vast building but generally navigable. Wish the elevators were easier to find, but other than that it’s pretty accessible and efficient. Real happy about the encouragement of all gender expressions to use bathrooms they prefer!
