This was the first time attending an event at the Spectrum Center and I was impressed! We were in the 209 section and it was perfect! We had no problems seeing the concert and the ease of getting to our seats was also a helper!...More

I was recently at the arena for the weekend concert. I love going to basketball games then seeing how different the arena looks when concerts come to town! So spacious! The arena never disappoints!

The Ritz Carlton and the Hilton would be the best choices and both are within 2-3 blocks of the Spectrum Center. And you will enjoy many of the sights of the city on the way.
