Huge convention center. Located in downtown Houston with close shopping and food options. Not easy public transportation around.

Yikes! I thought the corny red, white, and blue design theme went out with Nixon! A painful circus of color that is almost comical, if it wasn't so bad. Contrast this with the beautiful and sophisticated Discovery Green next door and you can see this puppy is overdue for a new interior effort by someone of international caliber, ideally a... More

Great place, with a lot of space to walk around and sit, bathrooms always clean and there's wifi on some spots.

Attended a conference - venue was generally acceptable except for some acoustic issues. Currently construction is ongoing which may result in some inconvenience.

The George R. Brown Convention Center is often the site for huge events that come to Houston, so here quite often. Comic Conventions love using this place. Also Passion 2015 used this space for their small group breakouts, which was great as it is right next to the Toyota Center!

Having attended several conventions over the last couple of years, I have to say that this was one of the most pleasant venues so far. The "ship" motif is entertaining, but moreover it's comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, AND it's all LEED (environmentally) certified! Aside from a couple of difficulties with the sound systems, the rooms were well set up and... More

When we went the convention center was undergoing construction. Just a little hectic around the convention center.

Very large place. Arrive early so you can park in the parking garage for $12 and not $25. Food vendors were really expensive, but overall really nice.

I would come here for certain events. Big and clean facility. Parking can be a hassle, though. I usually park in the Hilton Hotel parking garage. I had a bad experience parking in one of the remote parking lots and almost got mugged!

The George R. Brown Convention Center is spacious, clean, easily connected to nearby hotels and easy to get to from Houston Hobby Airport. The facility was immaculate and spotless and the staff was very friendly and helpful. That, the comment made by another reviewer is valid. The numbering system is confusing and it is not always clear where to go... More
