The Los Angeles Convention Center is an awesome place to hold business venue. I was here several times for business, but one that stands out the most was when they held "E3!" I was amazed how well they executed since this was THE SHOW, E3 literally, took over the whole complex from South to West to all concourse. Kudos to... More

This was my first big-time expo, and I went all four days. There are so many levels and rooms to go in, with several cool events going on. It is super spacious to hold gatherings, and good for just business meetings and other such things. It's really a cool place. For whatever event, you should check it out.

Decent amenities but very crowded and not always easy to find my way around. The food was expensive but I did enjoy the proximity to public transit. Very convenient to be located so close to staples center.

We had a great time. We attend this convention every year for the last 12 years. The panels were great, cosplay were excellent. We attended the AMV's, Masquerade, several movies. The convention pays for bus service to and from the convention to the local hotels. Had dinner in Little Tokyo several nights. We did have one of the worst hotels... More

We attended a large event (estimated attendance over 80,000) here and thought the facilities were more than adequate to handle the amount of people. I highly recommend parking in the main convention center lot as it is connected to the convention center itself and will save a lot of time compared to parking in adjacent open lots that might be...

If you have a chose of where to go for a convention do not go here. The building is huge with no way finding. The facility is dirty and has very few areas to comfortably sit when not in the conference. Food is terrible with very few options.

We spent 3 full days at the Los Angeles Convention Center and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We were attending the Girls Volleyball Junior National Qualifier. So thrilling and exciting. I would only suggest that the food pricing be LOWERED.... a little bit on the expensive side to buy food in the venue. No entrance fee, but parking was $15/day.

If you need a place for business meetings, ceremonies or events organization, this is a place to be. The hall itself is so large... Did my citizenship ceremony here and I was surprised to heard that that building could hold 3800 people guest excluded. Good parking lot, the view is amazing and the environment is clean.

I was here for the IHRSA conference. The check-in process was really bad, it took over half an hour and pre-registration didn't seem to speed things along at all. I don't know if this is different for different events, but I was surprised at how slowly the lines moved. Once that was done the venue was pretty standard; it's not... More

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.
