As season ticket holders for the Capitals, we usually enjoy our experiences there. There are no bad seats! Easy access to the top level, and every other level as well. As usual, expect food to be over-priced; at least it's not as bad as some other places we've been. Lots of places to buy souvenirs. Fully accessible to those with... More

Arrived early for a Wizards play off game. Staff made it easy to find our section and everyone was really friendly from getting our bags and tickets checked, to food and beer and our seats, the staff always smiled and was beyond polite. It is right outside of the Gallery/Chinatown metro so it was really convenient. Great experience@

The DC fans are great, passionate, accepting of other fans, all of them wear red jerseys, the Verizon center itself was really fun too, the location of this arena is in China town which is pretty close to everything in DC packed house and lots of fun

My girlfriend and I visited Verizon Center as part of an official Anaheim Ducks Road Crew trip to Washington, D.C. and Norfolk, Virginia. Our group was bused to Verizon Center from our hotel, and dropped off directly in front of the entrance, so I can't comment on the parking situation. We arrived early enough to check out the arena and... More

Easy to navigate to with plenty of entertainment and food venues inside and out. Plenty of access to amenities and easy entry and exit.

It's located centrally downtown next to the Smithsonian American arts and Portraiture building. Non-descript building and of course it looks like an arena inside. Plenty of food options inside and near the building. Found it easy to get in and of the building even in the large crowds. This arena hosts major events.

great place but subpar atmosphere. Not bad for a rookie hockey fan. Nothing compared to Calgary, Edmonton, Rangers...etc.

Unlike most other venues you can actually see from the nose bleeds. We went to a hockey game here and had a great time. I recommend getting the club seat package and be able to enjoy food and alcohol from before the game up until the 2nd intermission.

Came here for the game. This was my first basketball game here. I've been here for other events. Nice and clean. We sat in Section 120, row M and had a great view of the game. The attendants were fine. We parked a couple blocks away for $15. Overall, it was a great time.

This was my second NBA game the first was at a CAVS game at the Quicken Loans Arena.
