“Decent for venues. Nice place, albeit a bit complicated if you're driving there.”
We attended a Peter Gabriel concert here...all in all, it was enjoyable. Decent, roomy seats were a DEFINITE plus. Very friendly and professional service was also much appreciated.
Parking was a bit of a headache. Yeah, I know, it's downtown, and most people going here wouldn't drive. But this review is for the other country boys and girls like myself who prefer wide open spaces but admit that occasionally, to see a good concert or game, you do have to venture into the city :) Parking is NOT well marked, and the sign for the ramp down into the parking garage was there and gone before we knew it, and because of that I almost missed the turn down into the garage. Once you make the turn, it is a LONG steep ramp down to a huge roll-up door, which is closed upon approach but with no instructions and nothing on the wall but one of those ID/badge/magnetic strip readers. I got a little nervous at that point, thinking maybe I was in the wrong place, but after a minute the doors opened and I was beckoned forward. Parking, as you can imagine, wasn't cheap: $30, which is to be expected in such a location and such a venue, but I'm just letting you know in advance. The inside of the parking garage isn't any better with signage/instruction than the outside was, either.
Then you have to find the elevators, and get to the correct floor...and it is even more fun trying to get BACK on the correct elevator and back to the correct floor.
The centre itself is clean and spacious, though the bathrooms/washrooms are nothing exceptional. Pretty decent place, and about what you'd expect for a big venue downtown in a city the size of Toronto. I'd definitely be up for catching another concert or a hockey game here in the future...especially now that I know how the parking works!
