Attended a work event here and it was over the top. So impressed. It was all stations, risotto station, meat station, pasta station, soup station, etc. The food was delicious. Really loved the decor, particularly the "candle-lit" branches surrounding the soup station. The specialty coffee centerpieces with the nips were a lot of fun.

The Convention Center is very large with a good amount of open space. I was there to attend a church service for 2000 people and there was no crowding or bottlenecks. The reception area next to the large room accommodated a large group for a reception and display space. The elevators make moving between floors very easy. The breakout space... More

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.

I've been to lots of convention centers which I don't really remember anything about. This one was very nice. Great windows and lighting - great views of the river. Comfortable seating outside the meeting rooms all around. Good amount of restrooms available between sessions (majority women at the convention so they converted some men's rooms to women's in advance to... More

The convention center is nice and it is huge! Food that was served was always good. It got a little cold in our big group sessions, so I suggest a light jacket, but other than that, everything was great!

I have been in many convention center's throughout the country in the last 12 years and must say that Hartford's Convention Center ranks among the best. It is beautifully designed with an airy feel, roomy, and conveniently located by the Marriott hotel and CT Science Center and downtown. Parking is convenient and the free DASH transport is superb. Handicap accessible... More
