Attended a Junior Classical League convention at the GRCC. It was well-staffed, the food court, although pricey, had good food, and ample space for lots of people. The banquet room was well-suited to our Roman Dinner party, and the food was fantastic. A great place for a convention, easy to get to, and is very close to two hotels. Overall... More

I have been to multiple and varied events here. Parking is typically very good but not free. To be expected in a metro location. Events always seem easy to navigate and spacious. If I were a major vendor, I would certainly consider it.

Everything was clean, bathrooms well stocked (I think I saw a cleaning person in the bathrooms at least one out of every three times we visited a bathroom! It... More
