I have been to the Xcel Energy Center more than 20 times, and I am still never dissapointed. I love this sports stadium, whether it's a Minnesota Wild game, Minnesota Swarm game, college hockey game, concert, or anything else, it is just stunning. The only real problem I have with the x is how expensive everything is there. Other than... More

Attended many concerts at the Xcel, I must say, it is a treat each time. Cannot say enough good things about this venue. Usually clean, the staff are friendly, the bars and restaurants are a little spendy but worth it for a night out and there really isn't a bad seat in the place!

I love the location! The ease to get in and out is probably the best of any venue. I also love the consistency of every event I attend here!

I've seen both Wild games here as well as college hockey when the WCHA held the Final Five here. It's an amazing facility and an amazing atmosphere. Best arena in hockey.

The Xcel Energy Center is a well thought out building that provides an excellent spectator experience, no matter the venue. If you are from out of town, try to attend an event here while during your visit. The area has ample parking and an extensive hospitality (hotels, restaurants) industry in close proximity. FYI: St. Paul was just recently voted number... More

I've been to the Xcel now a couple of times- once for a Hockey game and once for a concert. The facility -GOOD - is very nice but the prices for the concessions are OUTRAGEOUS and they should be ashamed! A bottle of water was $5 and a draft beer was $10!?! I would never pay that, why do people??... More

I liked that it was Big &clean& good wheelchair access for seating and bathrooms. Staff was helpful. Nothing I didn't like about the place.

We went here to see a Minnesota Wild game, which I highly recommend if you are any kind of hockey fan because the experience just can't be beat. I LOVE the area and the venue is awesome! We had seats that were pretty high up and the view was great--still felt like we were right in the action!

I was here back in January for a game on the 18th. It was the Hockey Day in Minnesota game. Our seats were in the upper level but it was not a bad view. There must not be a bad seat in this arena.

Perched on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, the Xcel Energy Center is where the big stars put on concerts in St. Paul and it's home to the Minnesota Wild and Minnesota Swarm. Frequent events are held here like the American Craft Council exhibit in April 2014. The event was a juried art fair with craftsmen from across the nation... More
