We attended a church conference over New Years in this facility. The main floor has large meeting rooms, and a few bathrooms. There were two other large rooms for the vendor space and a huge replica of the Wilderness Tabernacle. My only complaint, is that on the third floor, they had scheduled individual breakout sessions. There were too many people... More

They have stores and Starbucks on the side near the Hilton Hotel and on the Marriott... More

End of year church conference. The facility was very clean and spacious. The staff was pleasant and adequately maintained the facilities. They handle the large crowd with ease.

Standard large convention hall probably covering a quarter mile. Plenty of space, but A-V particularly V was insufficient for size of the main conference room, particularly if in the seats further from the stage. Could be more seating outside the conference rooms on the 3rd level.

There wee coffee stations etc and plenty of bathrooms and areas to sit and chat with others or use your laptop or just make a... More

We attended the Houston International Quilt Show. There was plenty of space in this building. It never really felt crowded even though there were thousands of people there.
