Just attended a four day convention in SD. This is the third convention I have attended here. Never disappoints. Hard to argue with a venue that allows you to look out over Coronado Island between meetings. Well run facility.

We just completed our annual convention at SDCC. From the moment we started planning, we knew this could be a homerun. The staff all have been there several years which speaks volumes to their knowledge of the facility and customer service ethic. Whether SDCCC employees or vendors such as Centerplate for catering, we could not have asked for more.

The hotel has great views of the center and is very close to other attractions, such as the Uss Midway and Petco Park..

This place is huge aside from the obvious (it's a convention ctr) the surrounding marina is nice. There are a few bars and places to eat and the boats outside are good to look at whilst taking a stroll. Good place to kill a few hours.

The ferry is a must to move around from the sea port to Coronado Island. It gives you another perspective to look at beautiful San Diego. After a hot bike ride it was a welcome pleasure.

Beautiful location! Good lunch vendors. Within walking distance of harbor and gaslamp district. Better lighting in breakout rooms would be good, but the worst was the temperature control. If you are going to this building be sure to dress in layers. Felt like a meat cooler at times. More good than bad though.
