Went for Zenkaikon

The building itself was gorgeous, and the layout is clear on the top floors. They're a tad confusing on the bottom floors, but it was fairly quick to figure things out.

This is in the Marriot and very nice. You can stay in the Marriot or not and attend the convention center which is what we did. It is very nice. It is well set up. It is clean and has plenty of restroom facilities as well. It is large but not so large that you have to walk forever to... More

I never attended a concert or major event at the Lancaster County Convention Center before last weekend. There is a feeling that "it's not safe" in downtown Lancaster, and that prevents some night-time visits. However, our experience was terrific. We parked in a garage adjacent to the Lancaster Marriott / Convention Center. Parking was plentiful (and only cost $5 for... More

Stayed at this hotel once again overnight after a banquet that's been held there for several years now. The hotel is beautiful, and we got a great night's sleep. However, for several years in a row now, the banquet food has been less than adequate. The appetizers were just ok, the dinner buffet was very, very bland, and the desserts... More

We come here every year for the volleyball tournaments in January. You have to park in a lot which is a bit of a walk, or park on the street and run out every few hours to put quarters in the meter. Several homeless people sleeping around on the streets. But the convention center itself is very nice. They sometimes... More

I have been there for various Conferences. However, I commuted each day so can't comment on rooms. The Meeting rooms are large, facility is well maintained. A number of floors each having a variety of venues/room usages. Would be great place for receptions, business meetings, conferences or seminars.

Every event I've attended at the Convention Center has been well-planned, interesting, and entertaining. Of course, you should plan ahead, since parking in Lancaster City can be a bit challenging and there's an occasional weekend when there isn't a show at the center. Visit their website to plan ahead.
