The lobby area was beautiful, with plenty of coffee and delicious fast food. The restaurant Bogart was very efficient and conveniently located, with few, but delicious, selections. The main arena area was very comfortable and was easily entered without long lines.

Good seats - there were over 5000 of us and the sound and lighting were great - and the restrooms were clean and able to accommodate the crowd.

The Convention center was just close by the hotel. It is a large building with all the facilities to accomodate big conferences with many participants

The arena is large and fits thousands of people. Exiting the parking lot is always an issue as there is a large amount of people trying to exit at the same time.

A great place for concerts or conventions! Right in the center of downtown Long Beach. Across the street from hotels and restaurants. Plenty of room. There are some bad seats behind the stage sometimes. Limited parking. Nice banquet halls.

Attended our annual conference and this is located near waterfront in an area that has a number of restaurants and some shops. Easy access and nice views. the Hyatt is adjacent. We stayed a few blocks away and was easy walking distance. Facility was clean and well-staffed.

My first time at this convention center. It was nice with lots of light. There were very good hotels and restaurants within easy walking distance. Major lack of choices of places to eat or drink at the convention center. I was there for the three day World Tea Expo. On the last day, worlds collided between tea lovers and Comic... More
