Cobo Centre Reviews & Ratings
Very Nice Convention Center Faculty on the River. Can see Canada from various views. Clean, spacious with a number of restaurants on site. Food and beverage prices are a little high, but that is to be expected. Parking can be found on street or in garage.
It saddens me to write this review. I graduated from Cobo Hall in 2009. But today August 14, 2009 I was treated extremely rudely by an security guard at Cobo Center. I don’t know if the security guard us an employee of Cobo Center or not but he needs to be held accountable. I live downtown and I usually get an afternoon run on the river walk. I went into Cobo hall to use the restroom and take the people mover back home like I always do everyday. Walking into the building i had my earphones on. As soon as I got my hands on the women’s restroom door, I saw the security guards hand near my face. That’s when I took my earphones off. Then he proceeds to talk very rudely to him about disrespecting him and me ignoring him. He tells me that no music is ever that good for me to have it up that high. I explained to him that I couldn’t hear him and that all I have to do is use the restroom and take the people mover back home. I asked him if I could please use the restroom the then let’s me go. Before I go in he lets me know there is a restroom Near the people mover that I could instead use. As soon as I left the restroom he starts to follow me up stairs ( meanwhile who is watching the station he was sitting at). As I get nearer to the the restroom where the security guard said there was another restroom, it’s locked (it’s always locked and I because I am there everyday). I understand that Cobo hall is a private property, but I didn’t know that people could not use the restroom in the building or go to the people mover without being followed and made to feel that I had broken the law and trespassed on private property. All the security guards that I have encountered before have never been disrespectful towards me or made me feel Like I was a trespasser. I didn’t get the security guards name, but I do plan to speak to management the next business day to talk about my experience.
Located on the picturesque Detroit River with Windsor, CA a short hop across the tunnel. A pretty standard convention center with large event spaces, numerous catering options, etc. We came for the FIRST Lego League World Festival and had a fabulous time. People Mover station has a stop inside the venue, and there are great restaurants a short walk away.
Attended a wedding anniversary held on a day cruise ship. Large ship with lots of room, good food, and drinks are available. River front was beautiful. Good parking and lots of security. Very enjoyable.
Still an awesome venue and highly accessible. The only problem remains, parking, like every other place in Downtown. There is a parking structure on the roof but often full when there are any major events. Apart from that, plenty of rooms and great seating anywhere you go.
