Rockets Games at Toyota Center
The Rockets play their home games at the Toyota Center, located in Houston, Texas. The Toyota Center holds 18,055 Rockets fans for a home game. The lower-level includes Section 101 to Section 126, with the number of rows on sideline sections generally around 28 rows (rows B-D & rows 1-25) and the number of rows behind basket around 39 (rows B-M, no i & rows 4-31). The lower-level corner sections generally have between 17 & 27 rows in each.
The absolute best seats at the Toyota Center are Floor 107. This section is unbelievably close to the action, with the first row just a few feet from the sideline. Floor 107 sits at center court and has great views to both sides of the floor and is equipped with comfortable cushioned chairs. Fans sitting in floor seats also have access to the exclusive Woodforest Club located in the players tunnel. Unbelievable views, comfortable chairs, and club access, make Floor 107 our top recommended place to sit at the Toyota Center.
Located at center court, Club 120 has expansive views of the whole court, and is only one section over from both the Home and Away benches. The chairs in Club 120 are spacious, cushioned, and some of the most comfortable in the stadium. Fans can escape from the game to the luxury Rockets Club, with access to premium food and drinks.
If you want good seats on a budget, we recommend sitting in Lower Level 114. Located behind the basket, the first few rows of Lower Level 114 are only a few feet behind the floor seats, and have fantastic views of half of the court. Tickets in this section are only marginally more expensive than seats in the upper level, but are much closer to the action. Lower Level 114 is located near the Rockets Bench and has great exposure to the Rockets players throughout the game.
The upper-level at the Toyota Center includes Sections 401-434. The upper-level sideline sections generally have 10-13 rows depending on which side of the court you sit on. The upper-level corner sections generally have between 10-12 rows per section. The upper-level seats behind the basketball have 14 to 16 rows per section. The Houston Rockets home bench is on the Toyota Center court side in front of section 119 and the visitors behind sits in-front of section 121. For fans looking for a premium experience, the floor seats for a Rockets game are typically two rows (A & AA) in Section 101. 113, 114 and 126.
While in Houston for a Rockets game we suggest you try out some of the best Mexican food in the country. Ninfa's on Navigation and Lupe's Tortillas are the both amazing places to go to have an unforgettable meal and margaritas. Other restaurants worth trying out in Houston are Goode Company BBQ and Pappasito's. Near the Toyota Center we like a few of the options inside the Marriott Marquis, Biggio's and Xochi.
Parking at a Rockets Game
The most convenient place to park is the large 2,500 spot garage adjacent to the arena. These spots fill up quick so we recommend coming early or purchasing a parking pass. There are many other parking lots in the area, try looking to the north, or northwest of the arena as this is where the highest concentration of lots are. If you are not afraid of walking, try circling downtown for a street spot. Although inconsistent, this could be a great way to save a few dollars. The Metro also lets off close to Toyota Center and will allow you to bypass parking all together.
