Had the pleasure for the last three years to be part of a very large National Volleyball Tournament at McCormick Place. The staff was very accommodating and the venue was always very clean and organized.

This was my first time at this place (Midwest Music conference). It is very big and can accommodate large conferences. I enjoyed checking it out. I like the addition of a food court (even if the food was only okay and somewhat expensive).

Best convention center I have ever been to. Just an amazing building. The facility is always perfectly clean and kept. Room temperatures are very comfortable regardless of occupancy load.

This place is huge!! The main entrance has a long hallway of water features which is pretty cool. The bathrooms were well maintained during the entire weekend we attended the conference.

Have been here 8 or 9 times over the past decade, presominately for the Chicago Autoshow. Each time McCormick is totally consistent and effecient at handling the large crowds. Makes going to huge events like this a breeze!

Parking is solid lots of space you would get a spot not sure the price it was not too bad for the event I attended. Uber is always a good option in the city. I would get an Uber and go downtown for dinner.
