“Connecticut flower show.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We came to Hartford for the flower show and found the convention center to be a great facility. All the bathrooms were extremely clean and there were plenty of water fountains around the exhibit hall. Water fountains are always a plus in my book!
The exhibit hall was clean as well and well lit. It was great. The parking was the only hard part. Of coarse at the convention center for the flower show it is to be expected. I would suggest just going strait up to the top and parking if the weather is nice and taking the elevator. Saves you the hassle of fighting for a spot.

“Just what you'd expect”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

It's a convention center: they need better parking, better service, better seating, and better food. They should be exceptional and I think they can be but they aren't yet.

“New, Big, lots of parking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

New Convention center is very nice. Big rooms, bright carpeting, big windows, escalators & elevators. Lots of parking, but you have to pay for it. There's a Starbucks on the first floor. Lots of bathrooms. I'm usually here a couple of times a year for medical conventions. Very convenient location off the highway.
