I visited from NH for a Comic Convention, the staff of the center were pleasant and kept the center extremely clean. Large, bright center with commuter friendly parking there and surrounding the center. Bars, restaurants and a movie theater within a block, great spot.

The Hartford Hilton is about 3 - 4 city blocks away from the Convention Center. Not a bad walk, even at night. Not sure when the shuttle buses run, but there are taxis you can take in bad or cold weather.
