The convention hall was beautiful and well suited. The staff was friendly and helpful. They did a great job for all the meetings and functions going on at the same time. Perfect location. Close to everything..

I was pleasantly surprised by this convention center. It looked new and is well maintained. Perfect for a small to mid-sized convention.

Conference for about 4,200 educators. Very spread out, not well communicated as well as where things were located. WiFi was AWFUL! Spotty at best and would boot you off & make you re-connect constantly. Close to hotels, good shopping & lots of dining options, but...More

It is not one of the largest conference centers but still big enough for a decent size of event. Location is perhaps the best part, easy access even by foot from downtown hotels. Modern and well maintained facilities.

This is a modern style convention center with large public areas. There is a sky walk that was closed due to conference meetings being held. Looks like a great place to hold a conference.

Good space for a group of 800. Sufficient space for general sessions, breakouts and expo. Food was good and staff was always available for refills. Building took some getting used to regarding the layout, but not too bad. Lots of restrooms was also nice.

Wonderfully laid out space. There were multiple escalators, stairs, places to eat spread about, an enticing garden outside that continued inside. Skylights and windows kept the atriums lit and inviting. The staircase on the 4th floor atrium was artfully decorated. Such a nice, smooth flow,...More

The convention center has grown quite a bit since I first moved to Seattle. The design/layout can be awkward depending on what part you are in. The best thing about the convention center is it's location. It is fairly easy to get to from any...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.
