I visited from NH for a Comic Convention, the staff of the center were pleasant and kept the center extremely clean. Large, bright center with commuter friendly parking there and surrounding the center. Bars, restaurants and a movie theater within a block, great spot.

The Connecticut Convention Center is a recent addition to downtown Hartford in an upgraded area that includes restaurants, a couple of pubs and even a cinema. Plenty of parking and quick access to both North-South and East-West highways make it convenient with easy access.

Large facility very comfortable with lovely views of the city of Hartford and CT river. Have been here for several events and have found facility to be very nice. Parking is expensive so be prepared. I guess that's true whenever you park in the city.

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.
