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.

Excelent convention center! Huge for large conventions and adaptable for small ones, it's a nice option. Very well located, close Minute Maid Park and Toyota Center. The traffic to arrive there is not so easy, but as there are a lot of hotels around, this is not always a problem. The infrastructure works very well and the overall experience is... More

Lots of space in this convention center. Can definitely hold more than 1 event at once. Have been here for several events. Get ready to walk. Parking can be an issue. The Hilton Americas and a separate parking structure are connected to the convention center by sky bridges at the south end (that's nice when it is hot or raining).... More

Nice convention center, big halls, nice meeting rooms, and decent concessions. The big complaint was a lack of parking.

It is huge!!!!!! This is the cleanest convention center I have ever seen. It is designed to look like a cruise ship and well maintained. The expo for the marathon was well run. I havent been there for any other event.

So, a rather strange title but I know that women at least will appreciate the attention given to the restrooms and the fact that they were always clean and well-stocked. Our convention experience at the GRB CC was great. Rooms were well maintained and well ventilated. Set ups were just right, roomy even, for our group of ~1,000.
