Attended game 4 of the 2017 conference final. We had a great time and our tickets in the 450 suite were awesome!

Had a great weekend with my wife as we attended our first playoff game in Ottawa. Stayed out in Kanata and was within walking distance to the arena. Saved on cabs n parking fees so that I could have a few more food/snacks 😜at the game. I heard it could be crazy trying to exit the game as there's only... More

The venue itself is located by itself just off a 400 series highway (6 lane freeway) It has two off ramps from the freeway. It is very accessible, despite what the jaded Senator fan's might believe. The parking was fine even though it is frequently criticized, we arrived early, asked where to park in the lot to get out first,... More

Saw game 2 of the playoffs here in front row seats....great!!! Parking was $20 but we got in fairly close so no big deal. Didn't really have a meal here but enjoyed the open to all full- service bar before the game--even though it was jam packed. Had a super time!

Great experience at this arena. Heard a few bad reports from others but there was plenty of choices of food and beverages. Ticket prices weren't too bad. Seats were terrific even in the 300 level.

Went for a second round playoff game. Parking was $20 Canadian but easy in and out. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Good experience!

Of all the arena's I have been in for hockey this one takes the cake for alcohol. Even if you can barely stand they will sell you a beer. Hate to see if they actually get in vehicles and drive. Sight lines for viewing the game are good and seats are ok but a little narrow compared to newer arena's.... More

Now that the Nassau Mausoleum has closed, The CTC has moved up the ranks as one of the the worst venues in the NHL. The parking is right up there with the worst in the league, the concourses are cramped and claustrophobic. In order to generate as much revenue as possible there are kiosks throughout the concourses which take away... More

There is no better place to see a hockey game----there are no bad seats. For rock concerts the stage location and height diffuses intimacy with the performers makes it slightly less than ideal. So too for comedians, and other events.

Great fun at a playoff game. Fast and efficient security. Super well organized for the crowd that was there. Woohoo towels were on our chairs to cheer on the Sens. As for the food: Love the artisan pretzels - beat the ones I adore in New York City! Salty but soft and warm and so tasty. We get fruit parfaits... More
