We enjoyed our conference experience here! The rooms were clearly labeled and well lit. As far as temperature, some of the rooms were warm and some were cool, which proved to be a bit distracting. Fantastic location and clean building.

Came here for a 5000 attendees business conference. Location was good but the parking is expensive ($21 per day) and the lunch food here was bag lunches.

Attended a conference here and it took a while to figure out where things were as it was a bit of a confusing layout. You are able to access the outside from a couple of floors which was nice.

A typical convention center. Tons of glass paneling and endless escalators . Has retail on first floor. Very clean. Retail shops and restaurants around the center are very high end so bring your gold card.

The Washington State Convention Center in Seattle has always been a clean and pleasant place to visit. It is located in the near center of downtown and there are many nearby parking lots. Also public buses and the light rail are very convenient.

Although a downtown convention center, this was a gem. Close to great shopping, interesting and very functional architecture, large enough for a large conference, it fit the bill. There were an abundance of meeting rooms, small and large and a large exhibits room and a...More

I do not usually review the convention centers I've been to, but the WSCC sticks out to me as one of the best facilities of its type. It is very easy to get to from the many nearby hotels. It was very easy to navigate...More

The nearby hotels are expensive. I recommend a hotel near the light rail, preferably within walking distance. It's an easy light rail ride to the Convention Center.
