Chase Field has a lot going for it. It's location downtown means you can access it from the easy to use and cheap light rail system. The parking within a couple blocks of the park is in the $10-$20 range - dirt cheap by many MLB park standards.
The food and beer prices are stadium prices, for sure, but on the lower end of what you would expect to pay at a MLB game.
Ticket prices are on the lower end of MLB teams.
There are no rain delays - needless to say - and the retractable roof means you can enjoy the game in a climate controlled park. It was 111 degrees outside when I visited, so this was much appreciated.
The Arizona Baseball Club is a club lounge/restaurant located in the outfield that is open to all ticket holders. It has TVs for other sports - I wanted to check the hockey playoffs - and no last call until the end of the game. I say again, no last call until the game is over. The bartender working the night I visited was super nice.
The two things that disappointed me about Chase Field - subpar beer selection. Virtually no craft beers available. And I was looking all over the main concourse. Get some micros in here people!
A really surprising lack of Southwestern food. There is a mom-and-pop tamale stand that was tasty - and a local family owned Mexican food chain with a couple of locations. Sonoran dogs are available at some outlets - but I was really expecting more. There was a "Streets of New York" concession there. Why? More tamales!
You may have heard about the pool in the outfield. It's there, but you can't use it. It books many months in advance and isn't cheap.
There is a TGI Fridays in stadium. I'm not sure why you would want to do that, but it's there.
So if in town, or a baseball fan, it's worth a visit - especially if you are a cold weather city fan looking to warm up for some early season baseball.
