What Questions To Have in Mind When Buying a Luxury Suite?

Watching a concert or sporting event from a luxury suite is an unforgettable experience, and whether you’re hosting a client event or celebrating a birthday, a luxury box is the perfect setting. Despite the immediate gratification suite buyers will get from the impressed looks on their guest’s faces and the exclamations of wonder from their kids, purchasing a suite can be a stressful experience. Because it is a premium item, a suite can be expensive, plus there are many decisions to be made regarding the details of your suite. Do I want a suite along the 30-yard line or a corner of the end zone suite? How do I find parking and how do you even get up to the suite level? What types of food and beverages do I want in my suite? Can I get anyone with non-suite tickets into my suite? At Suite Experience Group we use our extensive suite knowledge to make sure that your suite purchasing experience is as stress-free as possible. We provide you with all the information you need to buy a luxury suite, and one of our representatives is always available to talk through questions, details, and concerns.

 

No question is too simple or outlandish (and we’ve heard them all over the years here at Suite Experience Group). As the person answering those questions I’ve been asked some things that people might think are obvious or kind of strange, but if there’s anything I’ve learned it’s that you never know what you can get until you ask. Here are a few of the questions I have been asked over the years:

 

How many chicken wings come in the basket of chicken wings?

I don’t know! I truly wish I had the answer to this one, sometimes its 43 wings other times there are 44 wings and if you get really lucky there can be 47 wings. There are never a constant number of wings. In summary, I don’t know, but what I do know is that you can always feel safe about how much food there will be. Most a la carte items will feed eight to ten guests so there is plenty of food for your party no matter the size.

 

Are tickets included with the suite?

Yes, always. This may seem kind of obvious, but surprisingly it does come up a lot. So if you have asked me this question, don’t worry you’re not alone. You never know what might come with a suite until you ask. Some suite owners even negotiate unique benefits into their suite lease and these benefits can be anything from a visit from a team employee (i.e., Jerry West for the Warriors) or field passes for the game that we can provide you access to. So feel free to ask what comes with the suite because you never know what you might get.

 

Do you have a suite for the game tomorrow?

The short answer is probably not. Especially for big-ticket events, it is a good idea to call us at least a month in advance to ensure that we have suites available. NFL and College Football suites need to be purchased particularly early, while MLB, NHL and NBA suites can sometimes be purchased the week of the game. My advice is to call even if it is the day before your event because we will do whatever we can to get you into a luxury suite, but if you give us more time we can give you more varied and better options.

 

Can I sing the national anthem for the game I’m buying a suite for?

Yes I really was asked this and like I said earlier, you never know until you ask, right? Sadly, no, we do not have the connections to pull this one off, but we are more than happy to help you out with whatever special requests you have for your game. We can book you a hotel for your trip, help plan ground transportation, acquire access to exclusive clubs inside the stadium, and even get you into a stadium early if you would like to host a meeting or ceremony. We are willing to help you with whatever requests you may have no matter how wild they might be, so ask away. And once you are in your private suite, feel free to sing along to the national anthem with all your heart.
