This is one of the great new locations to watch a hockey in USA. We enjoyed the food, beer since we sat in a corporate suite. I am thinking this is a nice arena for concert or stage venues if the University Phoenix is too big for. Too bad the City of Glendale has been messing with the team so... More

This was my first time actually inside the Gila River Arena. I was here to cover a boxing event for a news media outlet and as far as a venue, it gets a good score for me. I look at the big picture, parking, accessibility and seating. Parking was a breeze, the arena is located within Westgate and whenever I... More

I went to my first ever hockey game to see my beloved Maple leafs play the coyotes. The venue is beautiful however be sure and wear warm clothes as I was freezing. It may be a different temperature for a concert or other event as the ice helped make it cold. The food was great lots of selections and the... More

We had a great event at this venue. The arena staff protected the areas that were suppose to be for only our staff. They were friendly and helpfully. The food in catering had a wide variety and they also let us bring in pizza for a party. The event was a success!

The food choices were great and the staff was helpful and careful about not letting people get into areas that they didn't have tickets for. Great game too.

My visit to this arena/facility was for a national training event that included about 16,000 people. Gila River Arena was a great place to hold our event. It's a modern facility that's clean and well appointed. Getting in and out of the facility is easy and allows quick access to the many restaurants and clubs across the street as well... More
