Great game, great seats, clean bathrooms, fast beer/popcorn concessions, easy exit and plenty of opportunity to buy swag. I was shocked people could walk on the court during the game to get to their seats...seems to me it would be a distraction. With that, I would come again.

Great place to see a game or a concert, the building still looks new after 10+ years. The food is horrible, simply inedible, we wait until 10 most nights and eat after the game.

Good hockey venue, not a bad seat in the house. I come to the Verizon Center at least once a year even though I'm local

Travelling with friends over the holidays we decided to go and watch the Wizards. The seats were good value at $60 each but the atmosphere was exceptionally flat. The real negative for the night was the attitude of the security at the front door. My wife had bought a ceramic mug from the Capitol Building which was wrapped and stored... More

Great night out watching the "Wizards" on our trip to Washington over the new year. So easy to get to and close to Metro. Any ticket is a great ticket and entertainment guaranteed

The caps and wizards play here as does Georgetown University. Take the Metro as it is very hard to park and expensive.

Watched the Capitals v Senators. A very easy venue to get to and from via the DC Metro system. Located in the Centre of DC so I would not like to park. Access security checks were slow and difficult - wanting to remove a small packet of raisins - a snack for the kids. Our seats were up in the... More

Went to see Trans Siberian orchestra and was amazed by the quality of the venue. the seats are comfortable and designed where every single location has a good view of the show. The acoustics were pretty good. Recommended for any type of concert.

Were here for a Wizards basketball game and enjoyed the fact that the location of the nearby metro stop made it very easy to get to and from the game. In addition, Chinatown is within walking distance so food was easy to come by. It was nice going to a sporting event without the traffic and crowd hassle normally associated... More

A very nice arena, with a quick moving line at the entrance. Located right at the Metro stop for various lines. Quick and easy to get in and out of the game. The staff at the arena are very friendly and helpful. The seats are comfortable and easy to access. The center scoreboard is outdated and should be updated. Sadly,... More
