I went for a convention and I was very impressed. It is beautiful outside and well-maintained inside. Across the street there are many places to eat and shop during breaks in the schedule. I parked at the hotel behind it for $10 for the whole day. The staff were very friendly and the Starbucks inside was convenient as well. I... More

The building is beautiful on the outside and equally beautiful on the inside. I've been here for everything from ballet performances, to theater plays, to who-knows-what and I love coming here. It's one of those old yet renovated buildings that gives Pasadena the flavor that it has!

I visit here every month because every week they have exciting events. Sometime they have free admission and free passes for public for certain events.

I was here for work. The facility is centrally located and clean. Parking is expensive....maybe park else where and walk if you are able bodied and healthy

Art Auction Central! John Moran Auctions are like a trip the the museums of Europe and America, with easy parking, a very clean and modern auditorium set-up, nice facilities, and best of all, right across from the good eats at Paseo Colorado, where you and your date can marvel at how much the silver centerpiece fetched ($90,000!?!) while having a...

Everything went off with out a hitch including a very nice dinner outside on the plaza the final night. The location was perfect. Right in the... More

The Pasadena Convention Center is a decent place for a meeting. It's not as large as many, but will accommodate many groups in the mid-size range. Decent access to LAX and Burbank airports. One plus is that there are a number of good restaurants within easy walking distance, and the immediately surrounding area is walkable, safe, and attractive.

There are lots of terrific things about the Pasadena Convention Center and also some obvious shortcomings. The core facility was built as part of the City Beautiful movement some 80 years ago and yet all of the facilities have been very well maintained. The main auditorium is excellent for theater and a whole range of presentations. The ice skating rink... More

This a Class A venue - smaller, more intimate convention center - very comfortable, clean, well-managed, with great location and excellent easy parking. It is not a hassle to go there. A great small venue for conventions or larger group meetings.
