Attended the Elite 8 basketball game between Michigan and Florida. The stadium is huge. There were "only" 40 thousand or so there so the place wasn't even half full. The food is good, the seats are good, the parking was a bit steep at $40 but they had shuttles that would run you to and from the gates. I'd love to go back again.

Love Cowboys Stadium and while the hotel isn't exactly "near" it isn't a bad drive. About 10 miles away, depending on traffic.

This was the worst basketball venue I've ever been to. It's obvious this place was meant for football and basketball was an afterthought.

We were in the 2nd level, just above the lowest section, and in the 3rd row. I've never felt so far away from the court. It felt like watching a flea circus. Most non-football stadiums keep you relatively close to the action, and the further you are, the HIGHER you are. But cowboy stadium was built for football, which means the empty space filled in around a basketball court is wide, and far away. So even if you're in the 1st section, you could be sitting far away from the court, and not that much higher than the person in from of you, unlike at non-football arenas where the seat in front of you is like 3 feet below you.

The giant screen, while very impressive, is a crutch for your eyes. We had good seats, and yet I had to remind myself to watch the live game rather than the big screen just so I didn't feel like I was paying $75 to watch the game on a big TV. Management is aware of the problem and they are compensating for it by amplifying the sound of the shoes and the ball clanking off the rim, just like on TV or a WWE wrestling match.

The rest of the stadium is very modern, as you would expect, but nothing extraordinary.

Parking is OBSURDLY EXPENSIVE. It was $40 cash, or $35 online, or $30 online in advance. And this is just for NCAA basketball. For an NFL game, expect to pay at least double that. I read online that it can be over $200.

You can park for "free" if you park at Lincoln Square shopping center. They only require you to make purchase of $40 and place the receipt on your dash. Yes, it's the same price, but at least you get something for it. You can even just buy a gift certificate. Or even buy something, and return it later.

We were attending a 2-day event, so went to Bed, Bath, & Beyond, found something we needed anyway, bought a gift certificate for the first day, went back the second day, and used the gift certificate to actually buy what we needed. So we essentially parked for free. It's a 10 minute walk from the closest point to the entrance of the stadium. They also have a shuttle for $10, but it's really not that far.

Can't walk all the way around. Tricky to navigate, but lots of helpful people around to help. We went for NCAA Tournament. They have floor seating to get you close. I was worried how they would do basketball in such a large stadium. They have a huge screen also.

First I went to the stadium web sit to see where I could park. They blocked 5,6,7 so someone who is handicapped had to park in a remote lot. They finally let us drop mom off at lot six. After the game we waited until we gave up on a wheel chair to get mom to a handicapped pick up. We walked rather than keep waiting. The cowboys reps did as told and said yes their web sit is terrible. Acted so sad. We finally got to our car and left. Hope the NCAA does a better job for the final 4 our old people just need to stay home.
