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

Brian Jeffcoat

Brian Jeffcoat, VP of Client Services of Suite Experience Group

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.

Does this spark questions of your own? Give us a call at 800-592-7043 or browse our suites here.

NBA Finals Suites At Oracle Arena

The Golden State Warriors advance to the NBA Finals, a goal the team hasn’t reached since 1975. The Warriors defeated the Houston Rockets in 5 games to be crowned Western Conference champions. Next up for the Warriors will be the Cleveland Cavaliers. LeBron James and company will head to Oracle Arena on June 4 for game one of the NBA Finals. This is James’ 5th straight finals appearance. With the MVP Stephen Curry facing off against a former MVP in James, the NBA couldn’t be happier with the matchup. James and Curry are the two most popular players in the NBA. They finished 1 and 2 in All-Star voting and finished 1 and 2 in jersey sales. In the regular season, the Warriors and Cavaliers split the two games they played against one another. The Warriors hope Klay Thompson can bounce back after he got a knee to the head in game 5 of the Western Conference finals. When Thompson was forced to leave the game, Harrison Barnes stepped up big. Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut are two of the best defenders in the league and will have a tough task keeping James out of the lane.

While the conference title is the biggest accomplishment by the Warriors in four decades, the team has four more wins to go. Rookie head coach Steve Kerr will get a week to prep for his toughest task yet.

This is your chance to watch San Francisco Bay Area history at the “Roaracle”. A private luxury suite will give fans the ultimate VIP experience on the biggest stage in the NBA. A Warriors suite will feature interior lounge seating, exterior premium seating, in-suite catering, private restrooms and a dedicated suite attendant. With your suite at Oracle arena you will also receive VIP parking passes, enter the arena through a private entrance and get exclusive access to the Warriors VIP clubs inside. Don’t miss out on the most exciting action to come.

Grateful Dead Announces 2 San Francisco Shows!

Grateful Dead is coming to the San Francisco Bay Area. The Grateful Dead just announced they will be performing live at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA for two shows before they head to Chicago. For the “Deadheads” who couldn’t make the trip to Chicago, you have a second change at Levi’s Stadium on June 27 and June 28. Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir have been working on getting Bay Area shows booked for weeks after hearing how many of their fans couldn’t get tickets to their Chicago shows. So this time around, the band have come up with a unique way to make sure Grateful Dead fans get tickets. Around 90% of the tickets will be sold through an online mail order lottery. The band will not be using the standard method of selling tickets, so everyone has the same chance to get tickets to their final Bay Area shows. For Grateful Dead fans looking to make this a memorable experience, luxury suites at Levi’s Stadium are available for both shows. Grateful Dead suites will feature an intimate setting with premium seating, in-suite catering options and a dining/entertaining area. Suites will accommodate groups of 16-20 people. Your guests will receive VIP access in Levi’s Stadium where you can enjoy drinks and food with fellow “Deadheads.” Don’t miss your last chance to see Grateful Dead live. To reserve your Grateful Dead suite at Levi’s Stadium, click here!
