Working Downtown at Houston’s Hilton Americas

HOUSTON HILTON AMERICAS by cartoonityvuehoustonWas thankful for PSAV Presentation Services work at the Hilton Americas setting up A/V & projection for a large convention last week. It was another beautiful clear dry Houston spring day.

The Hilton is located at 1600 Lamar Street, right next to downtown’s Discovery Green park and the George R. Brown Convention Center.  It’s just a stones throw from the Toyota Center [NBA Rockets Home] and Minute Maid Park [MLB Astros Home]. And just across the freeway is BBVA Compass Stadium [MLS Dynamo Home]. It’s all right in the midst of the revitalized convention district of Houston.

So, Get outside and enjoy these days before the heat and humidity soon come !
