Alamodome, San Antonio
(3/5 based on 140 reviews on the web)
The Alamodome is what is known as a “third generation” facility. Its features column-free spans for unobstructed viewing and curtain wall system for configuration flexibility.

With the Alamodome you get the advantage of both a convention center and a dome without the drawbacks of either. The Alamodome is large enough to easily accommodate assemblies and tradeshows. The column-free design makes it unlike other domes in one very important way: it has an intimate, “human” scale.

The Alamodome opened on May 15, 1993 at a cost of approximately $186 million. It is owned and operated by the City of San Antonio.

It is the preferred venue for many trade shows, conventions and concerts such as Monster Jam, Ringling Bros Barnum & Bailey Circus, Disney on Ice, and the Valero Alamo Bowl. George Strait played a concert in the Alamodome in May of 2010 setting an all time attendance record for the largest concert ever played in San Antonio; the attendance was 55,266 people.

The Alamodome was the home of the NBA World Champion San Antonio Spurs from the years of 1993 to 2002. Additionally, the Valero Alamo Bowl takes place here every year. The Alamodome was awarded the 2001 HOSPY Award for Outstanding Recreational Facility by the Greater San Antonio Hotel and Motel Association.

  • Great place to see a UTSA football game. Constant 74 degree weather year around! LOL! Right across the highway from the DT tourist area. Near the Tower of the Americas and the Institute of Texan Cultures. They have added several food and drink venues over the last year. There is a local bbq place (called the Big Bib), a custom burger joint, and even local craft brew stands from Freetail Brewery and Alamo Brewery. Plenty of bathrooms and seating. Parking is pretty minimal though. Best off to take the Via park and ride if you can.
  • Great place for sporting and attractions. events. Graduations love this place . local to downtown San Antonio tx so after an event you could tour downtown area. Oh yeah you must check out the wall of fame.
  • Typical dome experience but still tons of fun. Went to to watch the Road runner's game had a great time. Parking can be about a 20 minute walk and is paid which is typical. Also beers were $7-10 sandwiches were $12. Again normal for any large sports event.
  • Great place for big concert venue. Plenty of room and quick to solve any problem that may arise.
  • If I could rate this place no stars I would. I was treated so poorly and with such disrespect by a parking attendant and a supervisor who did absolutely nothing when I made it very clear she was being rude and disrespectful. I have left a complaint which Im sure will be ignored. Regardless of the position your in people should be treated with respect. I did nothing but ask a few questions and got snapped at and an attitude that made me want to snap. Be ware if you have questions DONT ask the parking attendant about parking even though its their job! AWFUL!
