Nice venue with plenty of free parking. The large free lot next door toward Levi's Stadium usually has plenty of parking if the lot at the convention center is full.

The convention center itself is an okay venue in terms of how nice the building and how well rooms can be set up but the layout of the building creates a choke-point in the middle as people are forced to pass through the center atrium...More

I come every year for a conference held this time of year. The location is neat and well decorated. I like the access to Peet’s, Starbucks and the train. Very close to great hotels and the airport; 20 bucks for a taxi.

I was attending Finovate here and this place is really outdated. Free parking is nice. When using the parking garage, park on the top deck, you can then just walk into the building. So the entrance is at the top of the convention centre, which...More

Please note during events for Levi that the parking can be closed or very limited as people try use the free park instead of paying for one of the Levi lots.

Walkable shop/food area near Santa Clara convention center? (6 Replies)
I'm visiting for business but will be making heavy use of uber for moving about. I'm wondering if Santa Clara even has walkable area, you know, quaint streets with food/shops, that sort of thing. Ideally near the convention center but around is fine, too. Thank you!

Are you staying by the convention center? Nothing but places that cater to weekday workers. But if you take an Uber or Lyft 10 to 15 mins away, you will get some very good food on the other side of 101. What are you interested in eating? Good Asian food - Japanese, Korean, Indian, Chinese.
