I love a large venue with hotels so close by! The Embassy Suites is a short walk to the arena. The arena is laid out really well. It is not like other arenas where you find yourself walking around and around without clear directions. If you haven't been in the area in a few years, it was the Tampa Bay... More

My boyfriend took my to a Tampa Bay Lightning game the night before taking me to the Tampa Bay Bucs vs NOLA Saints game. We walked to the arena and loved the outdoor areas before heading into the game. The best thing about this arena is how intimate and small the arena is. There really isn't a bad seat in... More

Amalie Arena is conveniently located in downtown Tampa with many restaurants & pre-game game bars available. Lots of security and helpful staff on hand. We conveniently parked away from the arena and had an easy walk and also observed lots of parking close to the arena. Food places inside were standard Stadium pricing. For an out-of-town guest it was a... More

After hearing great things about the arena and sporting experience, we went for a NHL Hockey game. Seats were low bowl ($200/pp). I am petit so may go higher next game. The facility is easy to locate on Harbour Island. When the weather is nice, it would be great fun with a group or fun date to enjoy the game... More

Caught a hockey game on recent trip. Parking was easy and close. Everyone helpful and courteous. Clean bathrooms and line ups moved fast. Drink and food choices wide and good....a little pricey as to be expected. Loved the lightening rod.

We have been to Amalie Arena 4 times to see Tampa Bay Lightning play. On each occasion we have been treated very courteous and enjoyed every minute of our experience.

Nice arena that has been around for a while, but still looks good. Staff was very friendly at the Lightning game, stop by fan relations for button/certificate if its your kid's first game. Bought the cheap seats and the views were good. The gameday staff does a nice job of putting on a good show. Easily accesible from the streetcar... More

Attended a hockey game and a concert here. A great place, so bright and clean. Hockey seats were comfortable. The concert seats, floor row 7, were so close together that I literally had to sit with my hands in my lap the entire concert. They really need to give people a little more room. It was worse, if you can... More
