Large building, well marked and clean

It was easy moving throughout the Convention Center. The building was clean both inside and outside. I would attend future events at this location.

This is a large Convention Center that can host any combination of Events in Downtown Houston. Attached to Hilton and Marriott Hotels. Lot of Food choices within Blocks. Walk out and walk into the Discovery Green Park for a leisurely stroll. Been here many times for Conferences over the last 20 years. With the Discovery Green and the addition of... More

Wasn't worth the time and effort. Poor planning and terrible execution for the Super Bowl Live experience. Too bad, Houston is a nice city and with better planning, it could have been a completely different experience. If you do go, make sure it's before Friday.

Attended a very large conference at the George R. Brown Convention Center. This is a very nice facility capable of handling multiple large events at the same time. The facility was always spotlessly clean. The food was pretty good for catered meals for large crowds. I wouldn't suggest the French fries, they just don't hold up well on a buffet... More

Although the design of the convention center is a bit tricky, it was a nice space,with at least two hotels adjoining it. There's a starbucks in the middle section, as well as another Starbucks in the Hilton Lobby. We found that if there was too long of a line at the Sbux in the convention center, walking to the Hilton... More

This industrial looking convention hall has plenty of space but its funky design is odd. Its also on the edge of downtown near some shady areas. I wouldn't linger after dark.

The food was fine since it was close and convenient. The problem is that the cost of the food is double or triple what it would be just a few steps outside the door. I understand a small markup, but such a huge markup is unreasonable.

We traveled in November for the International Quilt Show. This is a annual event. Parking is at a premium if desiring it close by. Otherwise, prepare to walk from your car to convention center. They do have valet parking which is ideal if you are willing to pay and wait through a crowd also waiting for their car. Most take... More

We attended a church conference over New Years in this facility. The main floor has large meeting rooms, and a few bathrooms. There were two other large rooms for the vendor space and a huge replica of the Wilderness Tabernacle. My only complaint, is that on the third floor, they had scheduled individual breakout sessions. There were too many people... More
