“Nice Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Great convention center! Many bathrooms available- all clean. Great location. Only disappoint was the high price of food and drink. Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee.. $4.50....it would have been cheaper to go to Starbucks! With the Dunk Center right there you would think it would be less expensive- not more !!

“convenience plus!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

You can stay at the Omni, park on their 2nd floor, (4th for the convention center), roll to checkin, go to your meetings and not freeze in the winter or get soaked in the rain and it is fast, friendly, lots of food options at the convention center nearby or in the neighborhood which includes that charming Providence Art District and its restaurants. There is also an indoor walkway to the shopping mall that has windows onto the park and state house. All add up to a wonderfully user friendly place to hold or attend a large meeting.

“Courteous Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

I stopped into this center to gather brochures for a brief stay in Providence wanting to capture as much information as possible. I met the visitor's bureau attendant who helped me do a walking tour, a mini bus tour, and a water tour on the canal. This is a definite asset to this beautiful area.

“Very Nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

We were here this weekend for the Cheer Competition and considering the amount of people that were there the place was big enough that you didn't have to wait in long lines, it stayed clean, the set up in each room was great, the vendors were wonderful, We had a wonderful time visiting your facility.

“Spacious, clean, lots parking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

Spent the weekend at the Derby convention here. Its clean, spacious lots of windows & handy bathrooms. We used the big all which had an awesome smooth concrete floor for skating & upstairs conference rooms for off skate classes. There is a walkway that connects to a mall which has a food court. Omni hotel is also attached to the conf. center. I loved parking was no more than $10.00/day.
