My friend's daughter had two proms here. While the daughter was enjoying the event upstairs, my friend and I had drinks and dinner downstairs. Great food!

This convention center is spacious and exceptionally clean! The staff was amazingly kind during the entire duration of the conference. The air conditioning works very well so I advise you bring a sweater/wrap/light jacket.

My wife was attending a knitting convention. The parking was easy, covered and next door. The center has clean rest rooms, elevators, and moving stairs. A clean building and inviting to go to.

I was an exhibitor for the Handmade Bike Show and the facility is really clean, modern and beautiful. I didn't have a car and so I have no idea about parking situation, but I loved how clean the convention center was.

The Hartford Hilton is about 3 - 4 city blocks away from the Convention Center. Not a bad walk, even at night. Not sure when the shuttle buses run, but there are taxis you can take in bad or cold weather.
