Avenida Houston

Avenida Houston is the place to sip, stroll and savor in downtown Houston. The name “Avenida” comes from Avenida de las Americas, the boulevard that fronts the George R. Brown Convention Center (GRBCC) and runs from Minute Maid Park to the Hilton Americas-Houston hotel. As part of the exquisite landscaped design, the 99,000-square-foot Avenida Houston includes Discovery Green’s 12-acre park, public art installations, as well as two convention headquarter hotels adjoined to the GRBCC, the Hilton Americas-Houston and the Marriott Marquis Houston. The area around Avenida Houston also has many other activities, dining and retail options for guests, as well as unique meeting spaces for evening receptions. Additionally, there are three main parking garages: Avenida North, South and Central.
