I recently attended a conference at this center. It was not (in my opinion) an easy location to get to. The parking was ok. The look and feel of this arena was like a large high school gym - smell and all. The service from all but one employee was bad. If you needed any assistance (wheel chair help) the... More

For a concert venue, this place is pretty good. The concessions are everywhere but sadly they are overpriced just like anywhere else like this you'd go.

The show itself was amazing. I really enjoyed it. If you love MJ's music and love watching great dancing, you should try and catch this show while it's on its national tour.. As for the venue itself, parking is very convenient and I found the staff to be really helpful! (They even give out free ear plugs!) The only real... More

Enjoyed Circ du Soleil with Michael Jackson theme. However, tickets sold quite rapidly and I ended up in the nose bleed seats even though I was quite a ways from the very top. Sat directly in front of stage and some contraptions in the center ceiling of the arena caused a blind spot to some stage performance activities. In addition... More

Nice place to watch a basketball game. I have visited many of the top venues for basketball in the United States. This about average for a small basketball program.

My mom sis and I went for a girls night out. The show and our seats were awesome. Can I just say "I love smaller venues!" Anyway, my mom was on crutches and accessibility was limited since she was not in a wheel car. Not to mention getting out of GWs parking lot stinks, stinks, stinks. Signage was poor outside... More

Easy to get to the Patriot Center with easy parking and entry points. The sound can be a bit off at times, too loud at some concerts and not enough at other ones, but that might be an issue with the performers rather than the arena.

This was the second time coming to the venue for a concert and disregarding the WAY overpriced food and drinks and iffy acoustics the security is really bad! We had floor seats and your tickets were supposed to be checked every time you came down evidently some security did not get the memo because a group of obnoxious drunks managed... More

everything was wonderful, the hotel was set up for alumni and made you feel at home. Friendly staff, great food, clean hotel with connecting underground parking that is well lit with elevator.
