Speaking Of Houston ...

We used the convention center for our tradeshow and conference because the space is convenient to our entire hotel room block. It was easy and safe for our attendees to walk to the convention center only a few short blocks away from any of the hotels in our block. The attached Hilton Americas is a beautiful property with plenty of meeting room space on the same level as the meeting room space we utilized in the George R. Brown. The customer service in Houston was great! The staff at the CVB, George R. Brown Convention Center, Hilton, Hyatt, Four Seasons, Courtyard, Residence Inn, and Doubletree was very responsive, friendly, accommodating, and pleasant.

Texas librarians and exhibitors love Houston because of the vast array of hotels, restaurants and fun activities within walking distance of the convention center. Texas Library Association staff members have great respect for Houston’s hospitality industry. I’ve been holding meetings in Houston for 20 years, and every one has been distinguished by professional service. It’s a pleasure doing business in Houston!
