Quite the complex, great venues for sports and arts, lots of restaurants serving great food and beverages. Lot's of top notch hotels on and near the complex.

A fantastic Place for enterteinment. Wether you want to go to the cinemas, consert or a nice restaurant this place got it all. But if your use to 24/7 service you will be disappointed. They start to close down around 23.

Circle 8 restaurant was a pleasant surprise. All fresh food & delicious! Amazing service - really amazing! Try the house beef dish - melts in your mouth. We liked it so much that we ate there twice in one 3 day stay. Other surrounding restaurants were a disappointment & didn't compare!

Several restaurants to choose from. It seems to have helped revitalized the district a bit. However, expect to pay a premium price in the different restaurants. Good but not great.

Went to a work conference downtown LA and brought with me my daughter and her friend and mom. Went exploring towards the staple center and there was LA Live, setting up for the ESPY's. I wish we had one more day to hang around and see the place at night. It was a little disappointing that they had a lot... More

The LA Live Complex is right at the Staples Center with numerous restaurants/bars ready to accommodate the pre-game crowds, and conference crowds at the Marriott/Ritz Hotels. It's a Hot Spot fueled by the excitement of the Staples Center and the activities surrounding it. Even if you don't go to a game, it's a great place to hang-out and have drinks/apps/dinner.... More

This place has something for everyone. I would recommend a visit. If you get tired of shopping and just running around Los Angeles, stop here and take in a movie or dinner. Lot's of options.

Is it just me, or is downtown (and specifically LA Live) a bit off? I’d spent 20 years in LA before moving away about 5 years ago. The whole LA Live thing grew after that. I perfectly fine, but everything closes a bit early for a major metropolitan center. There is NO shopping of any kind in the area. I... More

Safe. good place pre or post concert, for drinks, night life, or eats. Subway is a 5 minute walk. Nokia theatre and Staples center are modern venues. During the day, the Grammy museum has a lot to see. This is what has revitalized the downtown area folks!!!!!!!!!!!!

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
