What a glorious arena. Brand new and full of Detroit sports history. The food was superb and well presented. It was easy to maneuver around the arena too. Staff were well placed and helpful. A great experience overall.

I love this arena, but I'm biased because I'm a Michigander and love the Red Wings. I've been a season ticket holder in the past and have seen many games here. It's just very comfortable and easy to navigate. I also like that you can...More

Easiest parking is at the ramp, but it is definitely not the cheapest! Are you spending the night if so many of the nicer hotels offer shuttle service. As far as where to eat, that depends on what you like as well as how... More
