“Showing its age”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

The service was great, but the convention center is showing its age. The fixtures in one bathroom seemed to be updated but the ones in the other bathrooms are pealing their coating and showing age.

“It's a convention center”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

I gave this an average rating mainly because it is in fact merely a convention center. Like most it's situated in the downtown section of the city. What makes this center unique is it's proximity to the Genesee River (thus the name "The River Side Convention Center). It's clean, it's modern and it provides an opportunity to walk the downtown river district and enjoy the sights and sounds of Rochester New York.

“Nice Convention Center”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

The convention center is very nice; they really know how to set it up conveniently so you can make your way around. It's also very versatile; there were well-furnished multi-sized meeting rooms, a trade show, and a commencement hall that were all tastefully arranged--the place where the commencement happened was especially nicely done with strings of lights and a nice stage. Highly recommended for large conventions and meetings.

“small stuff”
Reviewed 20 May 2012

Small sized place with not much to offer. Downtown is a shambles with big holes in the ground and no places to eat.

“Great place to see almost anything”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

The Rochester Riverside Convention Center is a MASSIVE place that can accommodate almost anything. I was there last summer with my daughter, at a college show, and they were able to fit several hundred exhibits into a single room. It is HUGE!!! If need be, they can connect several of their largest rooms together to form a cavernous that could house any event immagineable.

This place is also nice because it connect by skyway (elevated walkways above the streets) to a system of parking garages that can handle anything you throw at it. All in all, this is a wonderful facility, and you will enjoy attending any event held there.
