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.

I love Pasadena. It's clean, it's beautiful, the weather is usually great and the backdrop of stunning mountains and clean air just makes me happy. It's a great place to visit for a day of shopping and lunch, or- my favorite - the annual Christmas Tree Lighting on Christmas Tree Lane in Hastings Ranch. Pasadena Heritage put on a guided... More

Accessible to the Del Mar Gold Line station and spacious rooms. The Pasadena Visitors Center is also located there. Many concerts and fairs to be enjoyed. Decorations during the holidays are also appreciated. Across the street from One Colorado (I believe) and its restaurants/stores. Always a wonderful time to stroll down Colorado Blvd.

Beautiful, inside and out. Stunning architecture, beautiful ceilings, very classy and elegant. Staff was very efficient, and friendly. Seating was very comfortable. I just attended a convention with mostly women, and the lavatories worked well to accommodate everyone. The 2 buildings adjacent to the main one are also very nice and efficient. Across the street it's easy to find just... More

My brother and I recently attended Power Morphicon 4 at the Pasadena Convention Centre and were impressed the venue. It was spacious, yet set out well enough that you didn't get lost. Throughout the 3-day-convention the centre was kept clean and if there were any issues they were attended to straight away. The staff on hand did an excellent job... More

The convention centre itself is absolutely stunning. Parking was easily accessible and fairly cost efficient ($10/day). The centre itself was well kept and clean, and the staff were extremely friendly and efficient.

Went here for a Judo Tournament. Beautiful Venue with excellent sound system, comfortable seating, and a spacious lobby in Ballroom H. The Plaza was very nice and it was great to have a small Starbucks on site. Having a large parking garage across the street was also quite beneficial.

Well managed, clean and organized conference. Although there were some niggles: no signage at all outside on first 2 days of Bot Con, that was rectified by day 2. Some changes that could help would be shade for people who had to line up for some time outside in the hot sun.
