Even though I didn't spend a lot of time here, I attend the Miss California USA pageant and it was an elegant, classy location for such an occasion. Easy to find and plenty of parking for our event, we had no trouble finding our way to where we needed to go. This place is large and gorgeous and handled the... More

First Conference center ice been to in a while with healthy food: sandwiches served with grapes, gourmet salads. Thank-you for not serving hamburgers and hotdogs like everywhere else! Also clean building and BEAUTIFUL bathrooms. Building is very cold though...bring a coat!

Slightly tired convention center, dirty bathrooms, broken fountains, outrageous food prices, better than average staff in terms of helpfulness. Loading in and out as an exhibitor is as bad as any, loading docs are halfway blocked with building maintenance equipment, on an angle that made loading trucks in the rain a little dangerous. Took us 2 hours to get out... More

This was very disappointing situation their lack of technology and extremely poor customer service requires cash for parking one day credit card the next claiming that their credit card devices are working. This is the year 2016 technology is robust. It's an extreme hassle to be forced to go to an ATM get cash and come back to the garage... More

This convention center is good because there are wonderful hotels within walking distance to the center. The staff are very friendly. The biz rooms can be very cold so make sure you bring an extra shawl or sweater- brrrr.

First time at the convention for a conference.... it's a really large venue and it's a lot of walking. There is construction going on and some locations are closed off. It's hard to locate the elevators over in the breakout rooms and with this injured knee it's pretty painful. The attendants are nice and friendly.

We've been to trade conventions here in January and September and it's always pretty nice. Easy to get to, near to hotels and near to restaurants but the further you go the better your choices will be.

We visited the convention center for the NACO Conference in July. A job well done by the staff in accommodating such a large group. The facilities were spot on and everything went well, with a great floor plan and hospitable staff that provided the traffic control to the different meeting rooms.

I have just spent 4 days at a conference there. The facilities are very good and well located to several hotels that surround it. I found it to physically be one of the best facilities I have visited related to size, layout, design and function. We did have some minor issues with staff; however, I would chalk that up to...
