I love going to games and other events here. My friends and I always have so much fun, and it's easily accessible via the metro or even walking from DC. I recommend it!

Awesome acoustics and viewing in this multipurpose facility! Stadium seats were comfortable, ingress and egress was smooth flowing. Would definitely return (we're from New Orleans)! Great show, too! HaHa!

If you or your husband love sports , you gotta see this one. They had a girls game while we were in town but he preferred a baseball game but we did get to see this one . Right in the china town district.

Went to verizon Center to see the New Edition Concert featuring Salt and Pepa. The show was awesome! The acoustics in the Center is excellent. And how it was set up, it appeared that there wasn't a bad seat in the house. I must say the Verizon Center staff always do a good job. A great time, definitely a great... More

I love this arena. I have seen Capitals, Wizards and Mystics games here. The atmosphere is like no other. The fans are great. The food is great. The seats are all really great also with no obstructions. The teams are competitve and likeable.

Went to see a WNBA game here - pleasant staff, easily negotiable aisles, excellent access to mass transit, nice shops/attractions/restaurants nearby. My only complaint was, many of the food service operations inside the arena were not staffed for this game.

I am late sending this review but and doing so, anyway. Over the years, I have attended this venue for sports (games) and once concert (saw Maxwell back in 2009).

We visited the arena to watch a wizards game. When there is an event crowds of people tend to come, so keep in mind that you might have trouble finding a parking spot. Parking fees during the events are over 30$. If you can use mass transit to get in, do so.
