    Direct Metro access makes this an all-weather venue. To pair with brunch or lunch, check out Busboys and Poets.

    Great place for a conference. The #AERA16 conference is here. The metro stop takes you to the convention center & the Marriott Hotel is attached to the convention center

    Doesn't matter what trade show I'm here for, there is ALWAYS piss on the toilet seats in the women's restrooms. Nasty ass women who think they have the hovering technique down need to be shot!

    Go across the street and eat at Subway. $15 for hot dog and chips is too much money!

    In any restroom, if your phone ever falls into an empty sink, be careful how you retrieve it, as to not set off the motion activated water to soak it

    The rides are awesome, but the lines are REALLY long. Also: great place to get kicked out of.

    Much better (cleaner, larger) venue than the last location. There are parking lots/garages nearby. Better yet, take the Metro, bus, or Circulator.

    Food options suck around the center. Really crappy layout. Eat inside or bring a lunch. This is a cruel joke of urban planning.

    Great venue for conferences. Discovered coffee in the cafeteria is surprisingly good. Starbucks here is a rip off, there's a cheaper one across the street at the Renaissance. Nearby food along 7th St.
