“Staples Is Easy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Staples has brought moving large crowds in and out of the arena almost a non-event. Entering and exiting the facility is rather easy, even with security check points. Parking in the parking structure at LA Live is not the best option, so pay $25 and park at the lot on the corner of Figueroa and Chick Hearn. The arena staff is professional and Stapes itself looks pretty good considering all of its use over the past decade. A few more restaurant selections could make it even better. Always good celebrity watching, even if you are not that into it.

“Kings/Lakers/concerts --go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Staples is a huge complex--love when we go to the box--fantastic dessert cart will NOT disappoint you..it is like a circus on wheels! Food is okay, but the venue is great. You will see stars, celebrities and neighbors all in the same night! Concerts are great, easy to get in and out and of course tons of restaurants and fun places to go before and after the game or show!

“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!
