    Excellent Stadium for the match of the stars, the output is a bit complicated especially when you can cross Grant Park. Attention politics transparent bags during the events.

    My 14 year old son and I attended the MLS All Star Game at Soldier Field and the training session the day before. The staff was extremely efficient at getting people through the gate. We had no wait t...  more »

    A Big time Stadium that no one feels lukewarm about. Either you love it or you hate it - no in between. I personally love everything about it. The way the architecture blends old and new and the way it ties sky, land and water together make for a beautiful site.

    Clean modern stadium, the seating was decently comfortable, and bathrooms were tolerably clean and there was ONE member of guest services that was kind and helpful that I met before the concert, she was a really great help and someone you could have a nice conversation with. However, that's where the compliments end. The acoustics in Soldier Field are really awful making it impossible to hear someone simply speaking over a microphone to the audience. Fortunately there were no announcements that NEEDED to be heard of the PA system, as if there were no one would have known what was said. Additionally the parking lot is the most poorly thought out parking garage in history. I had parked in 3E, or the lot with the yellow sea turtle. Apparently immediately after an event that section of the parking garage gets locked off. Why? I couldn't tell you and neither could guest services. So my fiance and I walked around the parking garage for 45 minutes trying to find 3E. We asked 6 different members of guest services and building security, along the way, how to get to 3E and none of them knew and they all gave us different directions, "take the east elevators", "take the west elevators". Three members of guest services even asking what level I was parked on after I asked how do I get to 3E, I told them again 3E to which their response was, "There is a 3E on every level" I kid you not, the incompetent members of guest services think there is a 3E on every level and were unwilling to help us find the section of the garage. We finally got fed up looking and walked outside the building, knowing how we originally drove into the garage and walked to the car, seeing as it was actually impossible to walk to the car from inside the stadium since they locked the doors for pedestrians to this section. You would think $50 for parking would get you a decent garage and intelligent staff. Don't waste your money on food here, they serve cold $9 hot dogs and $13 room temperature beer and then they pressure you for gratuity. I will never return to this stadium and I will make sure my friends and family do not waste their money at this facility. -Very disappointed Chicagoan tldr; Nice modern stadium, bad food, incompetent guest services and horrible parking garage.

    Loved seeing a concert there! The staff and facility are amazing at moving people around! There must have been 70k+ attending and it was very well organized. Would love to come back to a Bears game!!

    Very cool stadium, on select days the park is open and anyone can go inside. However this is only when there is not a concert or game on. Very nice area and near the museums and some scenic street sculptures

    I have been to several events her but most recently Metallica. Easy to get around seats are comfortable with plenty of room , I am 6'3" 330lbs. Lots of food venues. It's pricey but not more than I would expect from Chicago $11 beers, $6.50 for a bag of peanuts
