“Very helpful staff”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

We went in for a rest and info. Staff was very helpful and friendly. There was nothing to dislike. Its a very large place where events such as concerts are held.

“Fine, though somewhat cavernous, convention center”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

I have attended conferences at this convention center many times, and always look forward to being in the venue. It's huge, often with big distances to navigate between events at a single conference, but it does have the amenities needed for a fine meeting. With the Riverwalk nearby, and the (somewhat aging) HemisFair Park at its back door, there is plenty to see and do in the area when you're not attending some of those talks that keep draggin' on (and the other kind also, which predominate at the conferences I attend here). The food for conference banquets has always been first rate, though I do know that this is somewhat dependent on what the conference is willing to pay.

“Great place to host an event”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Attended an Insurance Convention here late Sept 2013. This facility is enormous, with many great rooms and Salons for any type of function. We had a full auditorium converted to a catering hall overnight. The staff was attentive, polite and all of it is situated in the heart of downtown San Antonio. The convention center is also conveniently connected to the Grand Hyatt

“Spacious & Stunning, But Stone Cold”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

Tropical plants, intricate tile work, and the flowing waters of the San Antonio River create a breath-taking entry for this immense convention center. With a complicated floor plan, it's easy to get lost, but you might stumble upon some fascinating statuary or out-of-the-ordinary exhibits. Don't plan on eating there, as there isn't much choice, but the RiverCenter Food Court is a short walk. Do plan on bringing a light jacket or sweater, as it's frigid inside. All in all, it's a beautiful facility with great amenities for meetings.

“Excellent meeting space”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Excellent place to attend meetings. Downtown streets under construction, so locating parking can be a challenge.
