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...

My wife was attending a professional association meeting here and we stayed the the Sheraton right next door. I got to attend several of the events. They had both large and small meeting rooms. 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.

Took the California bar exam here. Bathrooms were inadequate for 600 people. Water is tasteless, but better than nothing. AC works well. Fairly quiet as long as you have ear plugs. The tables are old and worn. As long as you concentrate on your test then that is not an issue. the chairs are the highlight as they are a... More

Unbelievable how large of a facility this is. They can make the room any size you need it, from the Security Staff, through the project coordinators everyone is so helpful. Businesses should exercise their events here.

The convention center was a 10 minute easy walk from my hotel. Shopping and dining directly across the street made it convenient to have lunch and dinner with a variety of dining choices. The architecture of this beautiful old building was spectacular.
