This event was an absolute blast for the kids. We spent 3 hours at the convention center playing all the games. The security staff was very helpful and expedited the screening process. Great place to host that event.

Found the convention center facility wonderful for the multiple concurrent events although it took a bit of familiarization to get around this giant facility. The food offered at mealtime was acceptable but many stations were not open so lines were long. It is located in the heart of Phoenix with much available nearby, so a great location with good transportation... More

The convention center was very clean, and felt secure. However the catering was not good. They ran out of refreshments at breaks, and were so expensive our conference had to cut way back on the usual refreshments served. We were a fairly small group (not much more than 3.000) so the restaurants were only open for a very limited time,... More

The facility is adequate, just. The meeting rooms were scattered, it was unclear which of the multiple building, east, west, north, whatever, I was supposed to be in. NO WIFI in the meeting rooms......FAIL....it's 2017 people. Food in the facility....BAD. While Phoenix was nice, will recommend PALTC not come back.

We attended the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices national convention here this week. There was plenty of help to guide us to the right floor and the right conference rooms! The restrooms are clean and plentiful. There are lots of good restaurants within two blocks! The temperature was just right, not too cold or too warm!

I attended a large medical conference here. It is a large Convention Center and our conference used both the North and West buildings. I navigated it fairly easy with only a few turn arounds. Note: they do not have any Coke products, only Pepsi (at $4 per bottle). I add this because I took my own bottle of Diet Coke... More
