First time watching a live sports event in the States and I can't speak highly enough about it. If you turn up at most football grounds at home with a different accent, automatically you're the enemy. Here nothing can be further from it as we were treated as if we'd been to every game this season. A fantastic facility, fabulous... More

Much as I hate to say it, this was my first time seeing the inside of American Airlines Center and it's been in Dallas for some time. We took my grandson to see "Disney on Ice".When the characters in Toy Story my grandson's nose was pressed against the glass. The only con I could think of, were the seat's where... More

Love this place, love the Mavs. More than reasonable for a sporting venue of professional sports. Very clean, reasonable prices for food and drink, lots of choices. Lots of places to buy merchandise, although it's getting expensive; try looking at outside venues for team merchandise. Staff are all friendly and very helpful.

Great location, victory park is right outside and it's so beautiful at night. They actually have a people playing the drums. The food there is good, quite pricy. But if you like basketball or if you're just in town visiting, it's worth the stop.

We sat in seats 40 E and F The two stewardesses that attended us were very rude and everyone around us could see that they had very bad attitudes. I will never fly AA if I have the choice if this is the type people they employ!!!

Bought tickets for a friend's birthday via Groupon. I thought they were going to be less than average seats, because of the great deal, but, was pleasantly surprised. Platinum club view to game was fabulous, but, as was previously mentioned, I don't think you could find a bad seat. Restrooms were clean and smelled nice. All the people working there... More

I found beer I drank in Amsterdam that I can't find anywhere!! I showed up during the Dallas freeze and everyone showed up to show out. All the booths were open and the typical Texas warmth was in place.

It looks like an expensive hotel. It has none of the nasty odors that some sports venues harbor. We saw the Stars play. I didn't notice a bad seat in the house. I can't wait to go again!

Had an exciting time at the American Airlines Center watching the Dallas Stars play some brutal hockey! I have never seen so many fights at a hockey game. The crowd seemed to enjoy it! A beer, peanuts and a coke will run you about $20.00 and be prepared to drop another $20.00+ for parking! I had a great seat: Section... More
