Seats are pretty comfortable. The seats like about 1/4 of the way down don't have cup holders. No biggy-just irritating when someone hits your drink.

Comfortable basketball arena with many food and drink areas. There are a number of screens for info. This a true professional basketball experience. Bars, restaurants, and parking are in easy walking distance. This is also the home of the Phoenix Suns

Recently went to a Neil Diamond concert at this venue. Bought seats through Ticketmaster. Be more observant than I was. Since they titled the event: held at the Talking Sticks Resort Arena, I figured it would be at the Resort / Casino in Scottsdale. Wrong....More

Great location. Line to get in wasn't very long. Lines for food weren't too long. Want an adult beverage? Forget it! You'll miss half the show! Seats gave a great view of the stage- section 113. Seats themselves weren't very wide. I'm a big girl...More

Enjoyed attending Neil Diamond's 50th Anniversary Concert Tour. The show packed the arena, but the crowds were well-behaved and the ushers were courteous and helpful. The viewing screens were too small, so that those in the seats further back had a hard time seeing. The...More

Sound system was great as was the show. Seating is fair as seats are small and close to row in front of your seat. Screens are great to see if you are sitting up high. Difficult climbing for the seniors. Noticed they had trouble up...More

Metro goes right in front of the arena, but the stop is just a block east. Park just south and east of the arena and there are plenty of lots with costs from $10 to $5. If you get there really early there are a few free... More

susan, if you call the ticket office they will help you out and let you know, but it shouldn't be an issue. I attended a concert there and had floor tickets and I'm disabled; they assisted just fine all the way to the floor
