If you have a chose of where to go for a convention do not go here. The building is huge with no way finding. The facility is dirty and has very few areas to comfortably sit when not in the conference. Food is terrible with very few options.

We spent 3 full days at the Los Angeles Convention Center and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We were attending the Girls Volleyball Junior National Qualifier. So thrilling and exciting. I would only suggest that the food pricing be LOWERED.... a little bit on the expensive side to buy food in the venue. No entrance fee, but parking was $15/day.

If you need a place for business meetings, ceremonies or events organization, this is a place to be. The hall itself is so large... Did my citizenship ceremony here and I was surprised to heard that that building could hold 3800 people guest excluded. Good parking lot, the view is amazing and the environment is clean. More so the security... More

I was here for the IHRSA conference. The check-in process was really bad, it took over half an hour and pre-registration didn't seem to speed things along at all. I don't know if this is different for different events, but I was surprised at how slowly the lines moved. Once that was done the venue was pretty standard; it's not... More

With multiple halls, this is a great venue for the annual LA Auto Show. It can still be crowded on the opening weekend. For out of town visitors, there are a variety of hotels within walking distance, and with plenty of restaurants nearby.

Some convention centers are so big and so badly laid out that it is impossible to find your way around easily. L A's seemed easy to manage...I never felt lost. good areas for mingling, food concessions were better than average, and parking was also clear to find and get around.

I have been here three times throughout the years, and was able to bring my 10 year old this year (hold your horses, yes, I get the cray cray)....he's a huge Stan Lee fan and I warned him about what he might see....Listen, you see far more on billboards in France (does France have billboards?), and aside from his initial...

This is a great space for the exhibitors since there is plenty of space. For those attending, not so much. Parking is incredibly confusing and overpriced or your park faaaar away. The a/c is not up to the task on a warm day. And the food selection is lousy and very expensive.

I visited for society meeting and exhibition. The buildings are so huge. It needs an attention, you don't miss your direction.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
