The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront
This area has been expanding and becoming more and more popular, for good reason. Not surprisingly, the seaport district of South Boston is located beautifully along the water. The area is designed for easy strolling along the HarborWalk, and there are bars and restaurants for all ages and budgets. The Institute of Contemporary Art is located in this area in a contemporary building with an absolutely stunning deck overlooking the water. In the summer time there are Friday music concerts on the deck of the museum. Nearby, there are many green spaces to enjoy.
How to get there
  • World Trade Center • 4 min walk
  • Silver Line Way • 6 min walk

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was very disappointing to me. The merch line had problems. The food court no tables. The games that were there only had a few stations to play. Just not what I expected for them celebrating there 20 years.

I was in Boston to attend a world convention at his center which is huge and well equipped to hold large conferences and conventions. The auditorium is huge which can accommodate more than 20000-30000 persons and the seating is in a flat hall and would be better if there were galleries.

Every day - filthy, smelly bathrooms ; missing paper towels - counters wet - the worst ! Where to sit.... the floor — where to buy food ... 2 vendors on day 1 and less than 5 in court area throughout - venue had food options with ridiculous lines and prices ( $8 slice ... get the idea?!) why Mizuno chose this place IDK .

Attended the RV show this weekend, easy access to parking. $20.00 for the day of the show. The screening to get in was easy and fast. Ample access to the show floor, bathrooms, and food stations.

I recently attended a conference here for 4 days. The conference center itself is HUGE and the rooms are nicely laid out. It can be a challenge to navigate from one end of the center to another for talks so you have to time and pace yourself.

The major drawback here is the lack of food options. As an attendee either you’re stuck grabbing a sandwich at the two to three quick stops in the center or you have to hoof it a long ways outside. Those who did leave each day invariably missed afternoon talks. It’s a shame because the interior is great. But it sure put a cramp on the week.

This is a very large convention center near downtown Boston. There are enough restroom all around the facility. Nothing really good or bad, it is a convention center. The site would benefit from better restaurant offering inside/near the site as well as adding public transportation to all the way to the Convention Center, now the best option is to walk to South Station.

I came here for a conference (first time) and this place is huge, at a good location... and convenient to take taxi/uber or public transportation to. Inside, it's very big and seems new (or well-maintained) Most meeting rooms that I went to was in great condition, spacious with no noise coming from the outside.

Easy to get to, with shuttles to all of the hotels. Friendly faces are very helpful when finding different rooms on different levels. Great place to have a convention!
