Very well run facility. Very comfortable environment. The exhibits were very well marked and it was easy to fing your way around. I don't have anything bad to say!

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. More so the security... More

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

Some convention centers are so big and so badly laid out that it is impossible to find your way around easily. L A's seemed easy to manage...I never felt lost. good areas for mingling, food concessions were better than average, and parking was also clear to find and get around.

I have been here three times throughout the years, and was able to bring my 10 year old this year (hold your horses, yes, I get the cray cray)....he's a huge Stan Lee fan and I warned him about what he might see....Listen, you see far more on billboards in France (does France have billboards?), and aside from his initial...

This is a great space for the exhibitors since there is plenty of space. For those attending, not so much. Parking is incredibly confusing and overpriced or your park faaaar away. The a/c is not up to the task on a warm day. And the food selection is lousy and very expensive.

I visited for society meeting and exhibition. The buildings are so huge. It needs an attention, you don't miss your direction.

Less crowded but no less crazy than San Diego Comic Con. As a smaller con, you get a chance to talk to exhibitors and the guests. Cosplay was creatively amazing. Getting to meet artists and actors that I've long admired was fun and they genuinely seemed to enjoy it too. Parking was not bad this year which was a pleasant... More

Went there for a show as an exhibitor and they closed the parking so we had no visitors to our show! They apologized but that does not fix the financial loss. There is so much going on in the area with the Staples Center that it is a mess there all the time and traffic when those events let out... 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.
