Connecticut Convention Center
Ranked #11 of 65 things to do in Hartford
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Been to the Home Show and RV/Camping show here. Actual convention center is very nice, many large bathrooms, nice views of the Connecticut river. Parking garage is right off the highway and super convenient. However, I have never been in a parking garage that is so difficult to navigate. It is hard to find your way to the convention center, and even harder to find the exit when trying to leave the garage. Parking is also a bit pricey. Nice bar across the street, Front Street Bistro.

We came to Hartford for the flower show and found the convention center to be a great facility. All the bathrooms were extremely clean and there were plenty of water fountains around the exhibit hall. Water fountains are always a plus in my book!
The exhibit hall was clean as well and well lit. It was great. The parking was the only hard part. Of coarse at the convention center for the flower show it is to be expected. I would suggest just going strait up to the top and parking if the weather is nice and taking the elevator. Saves you the hassle of fighting for a spot.

It's a convention center: they need better parking, better service, better seating, and better food. They should be exceptional and I think they can be but they aren't yet.

New Convention center is very nice. Big rooms, bright carpeting, big windows, escalators & elevators. Lots of parking, but you have to pay for it. There's a Starbucks on the first floor. Lots of bathrooms. I'm usually here a couple of times a year for medical conventions. Very convenient location off the highway.
