While navigation can be somewhat confusing or tricky with various floors and entrances, the convention center itself and adjacent arena are incredible. Spacious, modern, breathtaking design great for all sorts of events, big and small.

They are doing a great job in rebuilding this area, lots of hotel and dining options. I can see a lot of new building going on and it will only get better.

Visited in September for a convention after a few years at other venues. Convenience is the name of the game here. Close to hotels, great dining establishments, and some sightseeing opportunities.

The others have it about right. The Queen Mary is west in the Los Angeles Harbor. Disneyland is inland, in Anaheim, which is east. So it would take at least 45 minutes to an hour to get to Disneyland. It really isn't easy to... More
