We were there for volleyball tournament. It was super easy access from our downtown hotel as well as many parking garages. The layout, spacing and facilities were all above average. Enjoyed our visit!

I don't know where else to review this. We came into Cincinnati to see a football game and saw that Proof was on at the Energy Centre. What a fantastic time! So So So much fun! GO if you can!

A nice downtown convention center. Plenty of space, and the place was kept clean and maintained well. Plenty of security and parking was convenient, though pricey.
