“Snowed In”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We were there to watch the last regular season game vs the Dolphins. The cold temp would not have been as bad had the owner had the upper deck seats cleaned out. There was so much snow we couldn't even sit down until we dug it out. Not cool when you pay over $200 for nose bleed seats. The stadium looks nice but don't go if there is snow.

“Go Pats!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We went to the stadium for some great seats in the luxury boxes. The VIP parking pass is a must to avoid sitting for house in traffic trying to get out after a game.

“Stadium and shopping center”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

I have been to the stadium for various functions (but never to an actual sporting event), one of which was a AAA travel show. Those facilities are first rate, and from the view of the stadium from on high, the seating areas looked to be as good there is. In recent years, an outdoor shopping mall has been added on high ground on one side of the stadium. Mid to upscale stores, and a nice view of action on the field (national lacrosse championship going on one time when I was there).

“Love Gillette, Go Pats”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Have been to Gillette 4 times but recently went for the Pats-Dolphins game. What a great experience. Besides the 28-0 beatdown, the fans got to throw snow around after every good play since there was so much in the seats. While I wasn't that happy about that at first, it was pretty entertaining after all. Gillette has great views from all areas of the stadium, amazing beer selection for a football stadium, and the addition of Patriot Place has made it all even better. I also had my first tailgating experience which was great, there are many lots within walking distance to the stadium, most cost between $30-50. Fair warning though, traffic is HORRIBLE after the game due to their being only a couple roads in and out of Foxboro, so postgame tailgating is almost a necessity. I think they call this a blessing in disguise. If you don't have a car and are in Boston(or Providence I think), you can take a roundtrip train direct to the stadium for only $12 a person, at least that was the price 3 years ago, it leaves from South Station in Boston. Anyways, if you are a Pats fan or just like attending football games, you will be happy with Gillette. Definitely one of the great NFL stadiums around.
