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!

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

It was decided to have our GO Conference here and the building is enormous. We were on the top floor reached by escalators and elevators. There was quite a bit of space for the large meeting area, many small rooms for groups, large restrooms, and display areas. There was another large conference going on downstairs but you would not known... More

A really nice convention center in a small city. Not going to rival Vegas or Orlando. But large clean and modern with an nice hotel attached. They need something else. Maybe gambling at the facility

We recently attended an event here. The location and parking were great. It is attached to a Marriot. There was plenty of room and well marked directions to the rooms.

Thank Rugbydox
