Watching Hockey is a passion for us… and we have been to many different arenas over the years. So when we discovered that the Montreal Canadiens would be in Raleigh just prior to Christmas (December 23, 2009) it was an easy decision to add this...More

Coach airline seats are luxurious compared to what you get at the RBC, now PNC center. Whether you are wide with not enough room, and/or tall and your knees are knocking the person in front of you, the seats are just inadequate.

This is a great venue for concerts--that was the reason for my visit. The views are good and reasonable unobstructed. This makes it a good place to take in a game or attend a concert. It's also a fairly comfortable venue.

Saw the Hurricanes play the Red Wings there. The staff was nice and the venue had good sightlines. The design made it that upper-level seats were still great to watch the game.

I am going to leave a review simply to recommend that you follow PNC on social media or get their emails, as there are lots of events here. We attend hockey games and NCAA basketball regularly, rock out at some concerts, and we actually volunteer...More

Typical arena it has all kids of events. The food and beverages are costly and the seats can be pricey. Depending on where your seating is how good a view you have.

This is not NY, NJ or LA so extremely high prices for parking, food and drinks is not OK! Plus, food choices are somewhat limited and the Football was days old!

Was Hurricane season ticket holder for years. Great facility for professional hockey, basketball, concerts, circus, you name it.

PNC is a good arena for concerts, and the parking attendants are typically quick to get you in and out before/after the concert.

Generally there for an event, such as a Carolina Hurricane's game, NC State Basketball game, concert or other live event. Sits are a bit narrow and tight. Parking can be quite a walk, unless you purchase premier parking.

Excellent venue for basketball and hockey. Nice facility, lots of close parking. Concessions are vastly overpriced. Eat before or after the game.

The Hyatt in my opinion is nicer, but since you're going to an event at the PNC Arena, I would say go ahead with Comfort Suites. It is very nice, closer and there are some food options near by.

Not a bad seat in the place. I prefer the lower level but there is good visibility from the higher seats.

Plenty of parking (you have to pay) around arename. If it's a weekday get there 2 hours before gametime.
