Not a bad seat anywhere in this home ice arena for the Stanley Cup champions. Site is walkable from many hotels in the downtown area. Arena is also used for concerts. Food concessions are generally good but a little pricey.

PPG Paints is so deceiving from the outside! The arena is beautiful and the seats were so comfortable! We loved the variety of food vendors and purchased some Pens gear!

if you can find a spot along the streets close to the arena then you are good to go, garages are close but cost cash. The parking lot across from the arena doesn't open till about 2 hours before puck drop.
