Visited recently for a weekend convention. The center was clean, modern and spacious. Staff were all pleasant and helpful. Loved that they had a Starbucks on site. Easy to access the convention center from anywhere in Downtown Hartford by Dash Shuttle or by scenic walkways and pedestrian bridges. Only one complaint - there weren't many restaurants or businesses in the... More

As you can tell from the ginormous number of reviews this place is a real head spinner. It was supposed to make Hartford a destination city. OOPS! The place was designed to fit into the area allocated, not placed in an area big enough to support everything a convention center requires. It is poorly designed for the unloading of equipment...

Huge place accommodates several concurrent conferences. Parking is overwhelming. Parking at venue only if you have no other option. If you work nearby, park downtown and just walk. A/c is perfect. Acoustics is good for rooms with about 400 table seating. There's a bell reminder for the start of sessions Food selection (coffee, cookies, breakfast pastries, lunches) is well served... More

My friend was a vendor at a show and I met her there. What a beautiful building! The parking was easy, no problem finding my way around. Very nicely designed building and clean restrooms!

Very spacious facilities with comfortable chairs for conference sessions and ballrooms for vendor displays and luncheons. The continental breakfast was so so but the lunch was delicious. However that could be partially due to the conference organizers and not the facility. The room temperature was comfortable.

Easy to get to with plenty of (overpriced) parking. Lots of space to accommodate almost any function. I've been there for the Traveler's tournament reception, UCONN Health center events and other shows. Place always feels safe and clean.

We're here for the weekend for the Spirit Festival Cheer competition. So far this is the cleanest centers we've ever been in. The staff is on a continuous rotation to keep up with the trash, spills, etc.. The bathrooms are spotless with no graffiti. The concession stands were accommodating everyone and the food was edible. Very impressed!!

A friend and I attended the Connecticut Flower show and was pleasantly surprised with the Connecticut Convention Center. The free shuttle from the parking garage to the center was much appreciated in February when the weather is fridge. The signage is well place and clear. The facilities are clean and well appointed. Overall I would attend another event at this... More
