Having very recently attended a basketball game in Brooklyn, I have an easy point of comparison for The Palace of Auburn Hills. As an out of towner, here are some thoughts: Pros + The stadium seating design is terrific. So much better than at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where the upper level seats felt so far away that I really... More

Easy in and out for parking - seating is quite uncomfortable!! I would go to The Palace again, but would be fussier about seating.

Excellent venue. Somehow we got in the lane to exit north rather than south, which delayed our departure

Even though it is a stadium venue, there is no bad seat. this is a favourite place of mine for concerts in the detroit area.

First visit to the Palace for the Neil Diamond concert. Great seats, Great staff, Great Time!!! Plan on paying $10 per beer, but that is the norm at any large Arena.

As you can imagine Disney on Ice presenting Frozen was packed with children of every age and all of the adults that go with it. The staff was efficient, friendly and organized. We were able to park, enter the event, find our seats and then depart quickly and efficiently. It was an amazing show!

We recently saw Maroon 5 at the Palace, and were pleasantly surprised not only by our seats, but the cleanliness of the place. Lineups for the washrooms and concessions were fairly minimal, and staff was very helpful...EXCEPT when it came to assistance getting public transportation. Nobody knew where to get a cab, or how to go about getting a cab.... More

The staff is friendly and helpful. I would say there are no bad seats where you can't see what your there to watch. It's got good parking and easy on and off to major highway. From basketball games to concerts to circus I enjoy this venue for business or family outing. Have ample handicap seating as well.

Went to see my first professional basketball game (not even a basketball watcher) the game was entertaining but the show around it was great - lots of music, a disco revival, non-stop getting you out of your seat - well priced family fun

Clean restrooms, friendly staff in all areas. Food is overpriced - but this was not unexpected. Eat before you come. Once you're seated, getting back up is somewhat inconvenient, but that's arena seating.
