I booked the Spokane Convention Center Floating Stage and Roof Deck for my wedding ceremony and reception venue. It could not have been more beautiful! I was blown away by the scenery, the professionalism of the staff the day-of, and the food was delish. The only complaint I have is that the (cheapest) kegs were $400/each, and I was bummed we couldn't have a sparkler exit but I understand that was due to city laws. Other than that, I was beyond thrilled with how my wedding turned out, greatly in part due to the Convention Center! :)

I am soo happy I chose to have my wedding at the convention center!! We had the ceremony on the floating stage and reception on the roof deck, it was beautiful and the events flowed flawlessly. We had ushers, security, a wedding coordinator, catering manager, and MORE people to help. The food was excellent and the venue was gorgeous on the river!!! Loved it all!!

The Convention Center exceeded our expectations on almost every count. We had an early summer Sunday brunch wedding with the ceremony and reception on the rooftop.
Note: We hired an external day-of coordinator, who liaised with the venue on our behalf from about a month prior to the wedding. Undoubtedly, the coordinator shares credit for a relatively flawless day.

The food was wonderful and reasonably priced. The catering manager worked with the chef to create a custom menu to our exact specifications. As foodies, we were frankly a little nervous about having to use the in-house catering, but we couldn’t have been happier with the quality, presentation, or price of the meal. The actual bar was also stocked to our specifications, including a custom bloody mary and mimosa bar.

We received a promotional discount on top of the non-Saturday price for the venue rental, but even without the discounts, we thought the CC offered a good value considering all the amenities. That said, we did opt to upgrade to the “VIP” china and silver for $3.75/person, because the standard CC china was unappealing. We also rented linens from an external vendor because our day-of coordinator told us the CC linens aren’t floor-length. These are two relatively minor cosmetic upgrade to the standard, all-inclusive amenities.

Our CC event coordinator was friendly, helpful, and professional. He responded to email inquiries promptly and thoroughly, and agreeably met every request we threw at him. The service staff day-of was professional, friendly, and unobtrusive.

Our only real complaint was that communication with the catering manager was a bit of a struggle. Our emails reportedly ended up in her spam folder most of the time, and thus went unanswered, but we learned to work around it by following emails with phone calls. Communication lag aside, she was helpful, flexible, detail-oriented, and accommodating.

Overall, we’re very happy with our decision to go with the CC.

Not impressed. Stefanie is great, but Dawn, the head of catering, was all over the place, never returned any of my calls or emails, and, the night before our wedding, told me we couldn't do our specialty cocktail - like I really needed that extra added stress... Not impressed at all. I was told 5 different things by 5 different people, like that we received parking spaces for our guests, then, the night before as well, was told that actually, we were on our own for parking. No one was organized, set up didn't start for several hours after plan, which lead to my wedding being late, and me being stressed out. Will not use them again for anything.

The staff at the convention center were wonderful to us. We were married on the roof deck. It is pricey, but it was worth it. They did all the set up needed, they were available to help us or answer any questions whenever we needed it, they were friendly and prompt, and the venue was amazing. All of our guests agreed and my husband and I couldn't be happier!

Be warned, there sales people will do anything to get a sale. There sales person
spent 45 minutes deceiving my fiance and I. They rushed us into picking a date that they recommended and if we didn't do it "now" it would sell pretty soon. They lied about the location of a conflicting event so we signed the contract. Then we found out a few weeks later about the actual location of the conflicting event and asked for a refund (a full year before the wedding date) but they refused, were inflexible, and gave us the runaround. They hid behind their contracts, there people have low morals, standards and customer service. For 45min of work we are now out 3 months of savings.

STAY FAR AWAY!

They responded very quickly and were always very positive. My biggest complaint was they don't have a place for the groom and the groomsmen. I had 20+ people in the bride's room!!
