Came here for an art show. Parking was relatively inexpensive if you park one block down from the convention hall and not at the hyatt. I recommend looking for street parking if it is a sunday or a holiday. There a good selection of food nearby and in walking distance. I like the lobby area in the Hyatt very spacious... More

Every Labor day my daughter and I are here dancing our hearts out with some of the best people in Sacramento! They are of Greek decent. They have photos from many cities and islands. When you walk in the front door...you hear the music and smell the aromas of the wonderful food. I have traveled to Greece. And this is... More

I attended the Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo and enjoyed it. I think the food choices could be improved.

I have been to the convention enter on multiple occasions; but, this last event I was an exhibitor. The staff was exceptionally helpful and courteous. I was amazed at how friendly the servers are. The food was always delicious. At the reception, they had mini Reuben's, a taco bar, a mashed potato bar (awesome), and assorted cheeses. Lunch was incredible... More

Attended a large national conference here and found the facility very easy to navigate and the facilities served very well. Some similar centers have poor sound systems in their meeting rooms, but the systems here worked well and the acoustics were generally good.

This Convention Center is old and lacks some of the luster, amenities and size of centers for a city of this size. Parking can be a challenge with a few smaller parking garages nearby. Two major Hotels are less than a block away. it is a short walk to the Capitol and the Nightlife in the general area is plentiful.

Convention center packed full of attendees, very crowded. This time the escalators worked most of the time.

Great Venue, easy to move around. Plenty of eating places around it within walking distance. It was good that people can't eat inside. You didn't have spills and food trash everywhere . You could sit in designated areas to eat. Good layout.

No bells or whistles. Outside food/drinks are prohibited; which is not unusual, but options within the center itself are limited to Starbucks and A Pizza stand. I wasn't a real fan of the layout as there didn't seem to be any easy pathways from one side of the building to the other. It was clean and it served it's purpose... More

I went to the Wizard World Comic-Con at Sac Convention Ctr in June 2015. The convention itself was a lot of fun, but it could have been so much better. The layout of the center is so old and outdated, with many events having to be held outside of the center to accomodate large audiences. The hallways and rooms are... More
