    Not the best
    There are very few hotels in walking distance that offered the conference rate for government. Thus, attendees are forced to scatter throughout the city. Also bringing in food trucks helps with lunch, but standing in 100+ degree heat with no shade or misters was not an option. We always went elsewhere

    Impressed by the Scope
    We drove around this area and I was impressed with the size and scope of the big convention center. There are hotels nearby. We did not go inside, but I suppose it has the usual features of a big city convention center. Can accommodate lots of people.

    Great experience attending Collect A Con
    Was here to attend Collect-A-Con, great experience. Very sweet security who did their job professionally and kindly. Very clean, air-conditioned, easy enough to navigate the floor I was on. I did hear the ATMs broke at one point, but if that isn't every convention I've ever been to.

    Good conference
    Overall I had a good experience. It was connected to 2 hotels used by organization for our conference by a skywalk and that was very helpful. The conference center was not too big where it felt overwhelming walking from one end to the next. I can say the rooms were very cold and stores like Starbucks and the coffee stand closed way too early. Otherwise it was centrally located and I had no issues.

The George R Brown Convention Center in Houston. A massive building that looks like a huge ship. Downtown location is perfect with several hotels, restaurants, a great activities center. Overall a great place for any thing.

Was clean, with security and some clear "no carry guns" signs that were somewhat comforting knowing the politics there. Police and security people were polite and helpful. Bathrooms clean and well stocked.

Clearly made to resemble the Beaubour Centre in Paris, this is a humongous venue loudly announcing its presence from far away in bright blue & red colors. Inside, several places to eat and relax when you need a break from whatever event you are attending. I liked the Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen (see separate review).

Very large and clean convention center, the security and staff here were all very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly.
We attended the NRA convention here and with the recent shootings in Uvalde there were lots of protesters outside.
Security and the police kept them back on the first day and we could not hear their shouts. Great place to hold/attend a convention!

HUGE Convention center. Attended the TML Conference here in October. It's a bit outdated looking, but it was nice. The chairs in the breakout rooms could have been a bit more comfortable though.
