Very nice, pretty well laid out. Spans over two blocks and at times you can cross the street outside to access another building or use a sky walk connector. It was somewhat confusing as there were several conventions occurring simultaneously when I was there. There...More

I have been to many events there (Phoenix Comicon is my favorite!). It is a beautiful facility-clean, well-managed and well-maintained. It is very accessible by public transportation or car.

Beautiful building that kind of anchors the entire downtown area. They hold all kinds of events big and small. What we enjoyed was walking around the exterior and checking out all the art work in the area. Very close to Heritage Square.

So, here's the rub: I love supporting businesses, especially when it comes to bringing money into Downtown Phoenix, but I think we deserve something better than so-so; Phoenix deserves a more modern Convention Center, something with more flash and pizazz; something in the 21st century....More

It shouldn't be a problem to enter the convention center, but if there is a conference going on, then certain areas/ballrooms may have access limited to conference attendees.
