We found it easier to enter from the convention center ground floor than to enter from the Westin connecting pedestrian bridge.

I've been to many conventions centers throughout the USA and this isn't too bad a center. The main floor is very light as there are large open windows in the ceiling, only issue of these however is that there were some leaks when it rained! The conference rooms were your standard rooms. The food which was put on in the food/hall was good.

The convention center is in the middle of downtown Pittsburgh within walking distance to the famous Strip District, home of ethnic groceries, reasonable food choices, and clubs. The blue lettering forming words that roll up the fascia of the roof are the words from the classic Pittsburgh novel "Out of this Furnace." The convention center also has a rooftop garden for fresh herbs and vegetables.

Pretty average for a convention center. I've been here for a number of different events, including a dog a show and the Home and Garden Show. I've never had a complaint about the place. The view of the river is nice, especially at night. The parking can be a pain, though, so allow some extra time to look for a spot.

Spent the weekend here recently for a volleyball tournament. Building is interesting in design, right on the river with an excellent view. Good opportunities for exercise on the river walk. Parking garage was full on the last day. Access to downtown from the west through the tunnel could be an issue.
