A nice enough convention centre; lack of Wifi was a real pain. Location is good because spouses not at a convention can visit many things on foot [State Capital and much more]

I am late on my review but this is a really nice convention site. It is always clean and surrounded by so many good places. We go to the comic Convention each year and have always had a great time.

Our convention was held here and the Hyatt. Spacious exhibit hall, great rooms and the staff made sure everything was working. They took care of all technology glitches. We had several problems at the Hyatt with tech stuff, but the convention center was on it! Located in the midst of great places to eat!

The Sacramento convention center is well organized, easy to get around to different rooms - and has a Starbucks on the main floor. It's also a short walk from many great restaurants, so this makes it a great place for business trips.

Location is central, near l street. Although parking is difficult- except in the nearby paying parking. Local craft people offer their own creations ( glass , leather , jewlery ,artistic clothing, books, etc ) every year, over 350 to 400 stands press themselves through the show. All crafts-people wait for the fall offerings. ( some food, music and fair like... More

The Convention Center is a great place to catch one of your favorite mobile attractions, such as Easy Rider, whatever version of ComiCon moves around, tattoo conventions, timeshare sales gimmicks, etc. I don't believe there is any reason, whatsoever, to stop by and take a peek of the Convention Center, nonevent, empty, and quite. Now Best of Sacramento, March of... More

This venue is huge and can accommodate lots of people, but the layout of the building was odd and a bit confusing the first time around. It was nice that there was a Starbucks and a pizza place inside and that there are tons of restaurants around it for easy dining on a short lunch break. The refreshments provided by... More

The Convention Center is easy to navigate, has plenty of restrooms, and a large outdoor patio to eat lunch on if you brought your own. The food venue inside for my conference was below par and expensive. There is a Starbuck's on one side, the line gets very long. I would recommend making a reservation somewhere near for your meal,... More

Huge venue, lots of space with some close by conveniences. The down side is the parking. Parking sucks unless you use hotel parking or valet. There is a small Starbucks in the lobby, but its always slammed it there is an event. The food provided was okay, but I ended up eating elsewhere immediately afterwards.
