The GRB is perfectly positioned in the center of a lively sports, dining, entertainment and nightlife destination. And there’s more coming: a second headquarters hotel, with the Marriott Marquis connected to the GRB at its north side; a new walkable plaza along the front of the GRB with retail spaces and restaurants, and a new grand entrance and façade for the building.
Spanning more than five blocks, the GRB anchors the revitalized east end of downtown Houston, where the
surroundings bustle with new urban development and world-class amenities. From fabulous hotels to more than
90 restaurants, Broadway-style entertainment to concerts, sporting events and nightlife, it’s all steps away.
Ranked among the nation’s 10 largest convention centers, the GRB offers 1.2 million square feet of dedicated
meeting space, including seven exhibit halls, a 3,600 tier-seated amphitheater, a level-three exhibit hall featuring
telescopic arena-style seating for 6,500 with additional floor seating for 1,000, four 2,880 square-foot open-air event balconies, 88 flexible meeting rooms and a 31,590 square-foot ballroom.
