While security can sometimes feel a tad heavy-handed, simple words of advice...don't bring outside food or beverages in. Overall, the venue is a decent larger scale place to attend concerts. The sound is better here than at the cavernous Rogers Centre. From the floor to the stands, there are decent sightlines. No pillars to block views. ID must be shown... More

I went to the last Hockey match at the Maple Leaf Gardens AND the first Leafs game in the new Air Canada Center. We were given a plaque with the ticket stubs from both games and a emblem commemorating the grand opening. Attended many Leafs and Raptors games as well as many wonderful concerts at the ACC and was never... More

We were pleased with the decent seats and good sight lines, though late-comers in the middle of a row will mean awkward squeezes. We saw David Byrne's "Contemporary Colour" show as part of Luminato. It was awesome!

My husband and I attended 2 U2 concerts at this venue this week. We spent a small fortune on our tickets for the first show ($785.00). We stayed 2 nights in a very nice hotel and so looked forward to these concerts. The first night I had two small plastic water bottles filled with wine in my purse (I know,... More

great arena, loud environment. my fav part of ACC is catching a raps game. every time the raps win, the crowd goes loud and even if they lose, the crowd remain loyal. the one thing I don't like, however, is the food price and parking price. those prices are too high

The last thing I want to do with this review is promote Air Canada, but they have their name on the building. The ACC is located right down at the bottom of downtown Toronto, and is Attached to the train station, Union Station, so if you're taking train,bus or subway, you may not have to go outside, especially in that...

I have been to to the ACC for many sporting events Hockey and Basketball. This is a well designed building with good sight lines. the food is OK and gets better over the years. The sit down restaurants are a good choice if you have time and money. I saw the U2 concert here and the viewing was great even... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
