The Baltimore Convention Center is located in the center of Baltimore's original revival area adjacent to the Oriole's Camden Yards and the Inner Harbor shopping/dining area with plenty of parking scattered around the center. My family and I have attended craft shows, food shows, antique shows and meetings at the Convention Center over the years. The Center is huge but... More

I am here frequently and like the structure but it obviously can use some updating and signage to navigate you to the various areas and halls.

Recently attended a large conference here. The place is sprawled over two city blocks and can be slog to get from hotel to conference site. While our conference had very poor signage, the convention facility staff were placed in key locations on the way and very helpful. In fact the personnel at every level, from wait staff, convention staff, specialty... More

The convention center is quite nice. Laid out well and clean. I would give it a higher rating if it were only located in a nicer surrounding area. Well run business.

Just came from McCormick place in chicago to here, here is much better. Right in downtown, hotels, restaurants, museum s are all walking distance, no shuttle or car needed it. Foods are great compared to many convention places, try the crab cake sandwich. Easy connetions to many conference rooms.

I went to a teachers' conference and was very impressed. The meeting rooms were clean and well set up. The main meeting areas were large and well staffed. The lunches they served to 5,000 people were surprisingly good and the wait times were good. This is a well managed place.

As a consultant to nonprofits and associations, I've attended a lot of conferences over the years. Baltimore, the city, has a lot to offer. It's an interesting place with a good arts and food scene. The convention center? Mediocre at best. Just seems like a place that needs a major refurb if it wants to stay in the game. The... More

The place is nice. Real nice. And it's great for all sorts of conventions, auditions, and more. I've been here several times but my biggest complaint is the fact that there is absolutely NO parking and all the local parking that is around is over $20. It's completely outrageous! Not to mention there's no complimentary wifi and the wifi you... More

Great location for annual Motor Trend Auto Show. Not sure about parking since we parked at hotel but looks like good location for public transportation. Plenty of restrooms and food selections.
