So interesting - I attended a concert at this arena in the spring, where our seats were partial view, because of the arrangement of the stage. The partial view had not been disclosed when I purchased the tickets - in fact, I chose more expensive tickets to be closer to the stage for a better view. Apparently there was a... More

Former Coyotes season ticket holder. I went to a game this year with my wife and another couple. It was a great time. The arena is a very good arena, it is just unfortunate that the arena is in Glendale. It is out of the way and the traffic flow is not very good.

Great venue. Have been to hockey games and a concert there, and experience was excellent for both. Surrounded by numerous restaurants, on same campus as University of Phoenix Stadium.

Following the Montreal Canadiens on their 2014/15 West Coast road trip landed me in Glendale for the final game of the trip. Although the arena is a fair way from downtown Phoenix and even further from the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, it was well worth a visit. Located next to a quite a few stores and places to eat, the...

Thanks to my girlfriend setting up a road trip for a group of us Anaheim Ducks fans, I got to see our team take on the Arizona Coyotes at Gila River Arena at the very end of the regular 2014-15 hockey season. The Gila River Arena is a very nice, modern hockey and concert venue that anchors the south end... More

Smaller arena. The big centre, ceiling TV is a lot smaller than Tampa Bay's. That was so disappointing. As it was warm out, I forgot to wear a sweater & nearly froze to death. Unlike Tampa Bay, this arena is surrounded by restaurants & small cafes. It was great slipping into one of them after the game to wait for... More

We love the Coyotes hoping they'll get rid of the manager selling all the talented players but....that's another issue. Stadium is great, impressed how good the view is even from the nose-bleed seats

Located in the Westgate Entertainment District. Lots to do in the area. Ample parking. Arena usually opens 45 minutes prior to game time. Dress warm, the arena tends to be very chilly. They have Tim Horton's inside!!!!

We went to a Coyotes game while in Phoenix this past hockey season, and it was awesome. The location is spectacular. Parking is a breeze, and for $10 we literally parked right next to the arena, 2 minutes to get from the car to the arena doors. There is a great pavilion with shops and bars/restaurants right outside of the... More
