“LOB CITY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

While the Lakers are though of as kings the Clippers might be able to steal the throne. Section 331 front row right on top of the home team tunnel. Never a problem. Great view of the court. Get to the game 30 minutes before hand and you can buy a meal deal at a price savings.
Bottled water is allowed in the place unlike the Honda Center. Take the Metro Blue Line to the venue and get off right outside and skip the freeway and parking mess. Street vendors selling hot dogs and sausages with grilled onions on the sidewalk when you leave. Skid Row is right down the street if you need any party favors. Clippers Nation.

“Outstanding Facility!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Second time at the Staples Centre, once for basketball and once for hockey! Love the atmosphere and how clean it always is. The concessions are great, lots of variety and very affordable compared to most arenas/stadiums I have been to. Very easily accessed by the metro - pico station. Will definitely attend another event here!

“the lakers and morrissey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

this place is perfectly organised. there is no sense of disorder or impending doom. everyone is there to help. it's very casual and I just found the environment very safe. food is ok, but I am difficult! I went to see a great concert and the place was packed, followedd by a lakers game a few days later. what more would you want?

“Kings Game”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We had center ice seats in row 8. Having been in other NHL arenas, this one seemed less suited to hockey. The seats were comfortable. The staff were very friendly. Saw a few celebrities. Good selection of food and beer.

Area is beautiful and very well maintained....they put you through a metal detector when you go through the door, food is great for a sport arena, staff is friendly and very helpful, and the arena is supported my plenty of parking if you dont mind paying for it...saw the Lakers in a VIP suite and it was outstanding!!!!
