Staff was very friendly. Bathrooms and main areas were kept clean which was surprising considering the number of people (volleyball tournament) especially teenagers.

This venue has a good location, but I have to really want to see what is being held very very badly to want to spend any time in this drab depressing structure.

In my opinion, a convention center is a convention center. It does have a nice view in the summer. Must admit, that there are some nice shows like the Car Show and the Home Show.

They are several restaurants a few blocks from the convention center in the Strip District(Penn Avenue). I think you'll like Luke Wholey's wild Alaskan grille. They open at 11 and should be able to handle 25.
