We took the city bus #403 from the Sheraton hotel downtown Ottawa to a Senators game, runs every 5 mins around game time. So quick, as it travels in the designated bus lanes. Less than $16 for the 4 of us. I highly recommend going...More

The events, staff, and seating at Scotiabank Place are great. Unfortunately the good experience inside the venue is marred by two critical problems outside: 1) The location: Horrible planning decision to place it in the suburbs rather than downtown (e.g. Lebreton) like 99% of other...More

I just went here for two games. Thursday and Sat. Nice arena but cold. They have the blowers from the ceiling blowing down on you. I like the fresh air too, but this is a bit much for even me. I bought my tickets at...More

Half way to Toronto, bad hockey and parking in a cow pasture. Getting in and getting out is a struggle.

We had an amazing experience at the concert, great seats. The sound could have been better. Concessions are very expensive but lots of them. Friendly staff.

We went with a group and had ledge seats. It was pretty difficult to find, and we had to ask several people to find the correct entrance.

Went to a Senators game with our daughter and her friends. It’s very easy to get around and the lines for food and beverages go fairly quickly.

Went to see Elton John and I have to say I really like the design of this venue. Staff were also generally helpful and friendly.

If you get seats to a concert and you are near the ground floor seating entrance you are in big trouble. Good luck watching the show with the steady stream of people strolling up and down the stairs to get food/drinks or take bathroom breaks!...More
