“Historic Convention Center”
Reviewed 13 March 2013

An older facility that has been well kept and upgraded over time. Attended a recent convention and was very pleased with the experience. The easy access to the shops a the Pru and restaurants is a big plus!

“Space is huge for any great event”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

The Space at the Convention Center is huge for any event. Great for Conventions as in the name, and for any event, as long as you and or your company has the money to pay for it!. Great Location!

“Super staff, location and service”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I stayed at Sheraton, adjacent to Convention Center. The attached mall gave many shopping and eating choices, all by short walk. Recommend exploring the surrounding neighborhood.

“Conference Experience”
Reviewed 19 June 2006

I was part of the registration team for a 3-day conference that took place here June 2006. The location of the convention center was great - in the middle of the busy town Boston. The convention center is internally linked to the Prudential Mall – for those shopaholics. However the place did have some cons:
Parking for example was $26 - $40 a day. Unless you were lucky enough to get to the convention center at 7am (no earlier since street cleaning takes place 2am-7am), to get a 2-hour parking in front of the building.
The convention center was huge inside with a great view of the Boston area it is located in. But the ballrooms themselves (where all the main speeches took place) were a total mess. Our company had to pay for curtains that would hide the hideous carpet-like design that covered all the walls.
Another down point of the convention center (especially for those who are planning to have a show take place here) - is that for simply moving a tiny box from the ground floor to the floor at which you are located at, you are to hire their union workers (for a min. of 3 hours) causing useless charges that could have been avoided.
The staff was helpful, and security was great. But, another downside to this was that we were to pack up by 12am, even though our event ended at 11pm and we had about 11 computers to pack away and clear our registration desk.
