With recent wins, it's now indisputable that the Houston Rockets will participate in the 2017 NBA Playoffs. Clinching the birth guarantees more games coming to Toyota Center, and more ways to make it an experience in Avenida Houston!
For an easy walk to the Toyota Center, plan on staying at the Hilton Americas-Houston or the Embassy Suites. Both hotels are within a couple blocks of the arena, and offer additional dining and meet-up options for you and your friends. The Hilton recently converted its 24th-floor space to an executive guest suite, offering a luxurious option for your pregame. Also on that floor, guests can make their way up to a pool with one of the best skyline views in Houston; then, step out onto the balcony overlooking the Toyota Center's bright red rooftop logo, and get ready for the game. Nearby, the Embassy suites offers an open-air pool that faces Discovery Green and all of the activity happening as fans prep for the game.
For those staying in the Hilton, you'll have easy access to 1600 Bar + Grille, as well as delicious Tex Mex from Pappasitos Cantina. Across the street, dine out on Avenida at Pappadeaux Seafood, watching the fans head to take their seats. At the ground floor of the Embassy suites, you'll find the wood-filled aesthetics of Hearsay on the Green. This well-known restaurant's second location is a great spot for a pint or a plate before the game.
Avenida is filled with excellent options for those looking to create a well-rounded experience. Capture memories with a backdrop of one of the many art pieces in the area, and stroll along the plaza and take in the downtown skyline. After the game, check out the Lobby Bar in the Hilton Americas-Houston, where a gathering of Rockets fans can celebrate sweet victory.
Before you head out in the morning, get something to wake you up at Starbucks in the lobby of the Hilton, then share your memories of Avenida Houston with friends and family!
