Convenient to our hotel and the bus shuttle made getting around a breeze! Super clean bathrooms even though the place was packed. A very pleasant experience.

Last weekend I attended a work related holiday dinner and dance party at the convention center in Hartford. The place is beautiful, clean, modern and nicely decorated. Parking was great and easy to navigate. However, I did not appreciate the fact that the waiters and waitressess rushed us while we were eating. They constantly asked "Are you done?" One of... More

I have been to several work related conventions and kids fairs and womens fairs - plenty of room, can park in the garage and not have to walk outside to get to the convention center.

We were participants in The Connecticut Women's Expo 2014 and had a blast because of the venue. It was wide open, high ceilings and really good union contractors. More tv advertising would have made this a stellar event and better attended to show off this tastefully industrially decorated space.

Facility is kept in immaculate condition. Good eating options across the street, science center and hotel next door. Ballrooms and exhibit hall nicely functional.

All is fine at this Center. I liked the modern, spacious, airy atmosphere. It is adjacent to the Marriott for lodging or dining. Science museum and the river walk are adjacent as well.

The restaurant scene around the convention center is changing for the better. They've added a Capital Grill, two B-B-Q places, a couple of outdoor cafes and the old reliable Arch Tavern. They have also added a movie theater and upscale music venue. It's a very big change from a few years ago. It's a much livelier neighborhood. It's actually pretty... More

Super large, very neat, great staff - they see everything, relaxing color scheme, slightly industrial in design and easy access. Excellent parking. if you stay at the Marriott request a discount voucher and parking will be 49% off!

The convention center is modern and well equipped. Hartford runs a free shuttle from the hotels to the center. The banquet served at the convention center was delicious ... definitely not the standard rubber chicken fare.
