Been there for a basketball game and an arena football game in the last month. Great access, good parking (park as far away as you comfortably can because traffic after an event can be painful. The only thing keeping it from excellent is limited food options and the suite food is ok, but just ok.

I attended 3 games here in April 2017 as a tourist. On each occasion the staff at the game were great and the every seat we sat in had a great view of the game. Food options are better on the lower area's of the arena.

Saw the Game of Thrones Concert Experience here - seating was cramped (don't remember it being that tight at other concerts or the SUNS games) but the concert was great.

So many places to eat, so much to see, so much to do and of course, the sporting event we came for too.

The loation is downtown, event parking for the whole day for ten dollars just a few blocks away. The Suns suck, so you can get great ticket prices on short notice.

One of the best arenas I have been too. Everything was easy to find. The seats were well marked. Excellent staff and security. Would definitely come back to this arena to attend another event.

Loved the atmosphere but what a shame that ticket prices went up Just because it's the Celtic s. Arena hallways are narrow so be prepared. Visiting so it was s fun evening.
