Boring. It's a convention center. Yawn. On the other hand, go during Comic Con and check out the costumed weirdness. Now that's a good time.

Attended a huge CA tradeshow and the people who replaced beverages and pastries were so rude and they never even had water out for 800+ people. Beautiful venue and would come back but when you hire people for food service of any kind make sure...More

I took my husband to PAX Prime this year and didn't know what to expect. I was surprised about how big the facilities were. The escalators kept breaking down and the main convention was on level 4 so I started to notice that the building...More

If you are planning a business convention, this is the place. Seattle is gorgeous in the summer. This facility is very well situated for drivers and commuters. Just a few blocks from light rail to airport. Very comfortable. Super professional.

Parking from 5pm to mid night is for seven dollars US. The parking area was safe. The only thing that could pose a problem is that the parking garage closes at mid-night. Security staff were very very helpful as well.

Visited the convention center to attend MozCon, it's a good venue with enough bathrooms. Lots of natural light in the common areas. Only thing I didn't like was the breakfasts served there, they were pretty bland.

For any convention this is the most versatile facility. Easy to make your way around and find what you need and attend your meetings. They have done a wonderful job with artwork as you travel into the building.

Very friendly, clean and go out of their way to host a great meeting. We also had 2 business breakfasts and lunch; food was good. Servers were on top of cleaning up and making everyone feel welcome.

The nearby hotels are expensive. I recommend a hotel near the light rail, preferably within walking distance. It's an easy light rail ride to the Convention Center.
