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.

I just attended a trade show at the Connecticut Convention Center. I have been to a LOT of trade shows in many different cities, and I was quite impressed with this convention center! The facilities themselves are very nice - but the staff is what made the experience exceptional. Many of the staff members truly went above and beyond to... More

Attentive staff and great views. Rooms are well-sized and easy to find. The food/catering is really top-notch for such a large establishment. Very nice place to take breaks along the river.

I would say that the convention center is one of the top places to take in an event in the entire state. I am actually looking forward to a few different expos that will be coming up there soon. Parking is convenient as it is next door but the price is on the high side. Other than the parking price,... More

Clean convention center, very helpful staff, and excellent prepared meals. The snacks were a bit lacking. A lot of sweets and almost no fruit. What little fruit there was disappeared within minutes. Hmmm. Maybe that should have been a clue.

As far as convention centers go, the Hartford Convention Center has convenient parking and clean, large restrooms. It is easy to get to for overnight visitors to Hartford: the Star Shuttle runs every 15 minutes from the Convention Center to the all the major hotels downtown; this free bus ride makes it easy if one is staying at a nearby...
