For those needing alternative lodging options, the following hotels are within walking distance of the Hyatt Regency in downtown Houston:
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Houston Downtown
400 Dallas St, Houston, TX 77002
The Whitehall Houston
1700 Smith St, Houston, TX 77002
TAM has reserved a small number of overflow rooms (5) at the Whitehall hotel, but was unable to secure a complimentary block of rooms at the DoubleTree, as lodging is limited throughout the city the week of April 16, 2018 due to a youth robotics competition at the George R Brown Convention Center in downtown. Lodging at nearby hotels is subject to availability and the going rate at the time of booking. Be sure to mention TAM at the Whitehall hotel to see if there are still rooms available as part of the small TAM room block.
