Was there with the family for the quilt show. Easy to get in and out. Close to many hotels. Plenty of parking around, parking can be expensive. Close to freeways. Not to many places to eat inside. Starbucks gets really crowded. Plenty of places to sit.

I attended the NCTM at the George R Brown Convention Center in Houston. This place is huge. With so many people attending, there was ample space to sit around everywhere. I will definitely attend next year.

I love the convenience and location of this convention center. I always stay at the adjoining Hilton Americas while visiting the Quilt Market and it is easy to get to many wonderful venues, restaurants and shopping without needing a car.

Great location for downtown conventions in the heart of the city. We enjoyed the Big Brew Fest and the International Quilt Festival. Discovery Green just outside the doors is a perfect place for concerts, outdoor festivals and just lovely walks.

Great hosts and perfect venue for the USA Jr. National Volleyball Championships. Be sure to check out the gift shop on the second floor. Mary was great ambassador for the shop, the Ctr and Houston.
