This place is a nice place for conventions. The only thing I would comment negatively on is the parking situation. Difficult to figure out how to get to based on the building you are in. However, that being said, the most amazing manger of the...More

I attended the Creativation conference. Allow yourself extra time if you are driving. Driving downtown can be a bit frustrating because of many street closures. There are many parking lots available within a short walking distance from the center. There are escalators that will take...More

The facility is huge and has a lot of space. It’s clean. The food court is sad. Cost $5 for a fountain soda pop!! Not enough places to sit in between meeting either.

The convention center in Phoenix is efficient and modern. The level of service that I experienced from the convention staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Hard to figure out where best to park to get to he area you want to reach. It can be a looong walk. Not good if one is mobility impaired. Infrastructure is fairly new and it's fine on the inside - but areas are bare,

We were exploring the area after visiting the Wells Fargo museum in downtown, so bumped on this pretty big and modern structure. As I expect such places to be in city's suburbs, I was surprised finding it here in the very center. It's a multi...More

Lovely space - about 5,000 in the conference. Good access with escalators & elevators. Ladies rooms kept as clean as possible with all the traffic they were getting.

My wife and I attended a Tony Robbins event yesterday and damn near froze to death, sitting in a big, open, cement-floored conference room, with cold air blowing in almost constantly. The SPEAKERS even complained of the cold. We gave up on the management fixing...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.
