    Every seat is pretty much a good seat at this place. Great venue! Only wish you could take food you buy from the CNN food court(which is connected to the building) into the Arena.

    Went to a Hawks game, parked next to College Hall of Fame for quick in and out. Love the announcer for the Hawks. Wish their wifi worked (please fix!). A lot of fun overall.

    #1 tip: Beat the crowds!!! For the best in excitement and sports Philips Arena is the place to be. If the food gets too expensive the CNN Center is just a short walk away.

    WetBar at the W Atlanta Downtown is the best way to take in views of the city, rain or shine. Grab a drink at the rooftop pool bar.
