Traveling North on I45, take the NASA Rd. 1 exit and turn right at the light. Drive straight and access the NASA Rd 1 bypass. Continue in the left lane until you reach Space Center Blvd where you will be turning left. (You will see the Hilton and Clear Lake on the right). Do not turn into the first gate for JSC, but go straight to the second turn in, which will be the Gilruth Center. It has a low profile sign at the entrance and ball parks on each side of the driveway. It is best to park at the back of the lot as the doors you will need to enter are on that side. You will recognize it by the covered passenger drop off area.  The banquet room will be directly on your left as you enter the building.
