This convention center is spacious and exceptionally clean! The staff was amazingly kind during the entire duration of the conference. The air conditioning works very well so I advise you bring a sweater/wrap/light jacket.

We went to a Stitches United convention here. I couldn't get over how clean they kept it with all of the people that were attending! The staff were all so accommodating and nice. It was a terrific experience.

My wife was attending a knitting convention. The parking was easy, covered and next door. The center has clean rest rooms, elevators, and moving stairs. A clean building and inviting to go to.

I was an exhibitor for the Handmade Bike Show and the facility is really clean, modern and beautiful. I didn't have a car and so I have no idea about parking situation, but I loved how clean the convention center was.

The Hartford Hilton is about 3 - 4 city blocks away from the Convention Center. Not a bad walk, even at night. Not sure when the shuttle buses run, but there are taxis you can take in bad or cold weather.
