The venue itself is clean and nice. And the surroundings restaurants have kind of built up to support whatever is going on at Staples Center. Parking can be difficult and expensive. But really, being there is more about whatever event you're going to see.

This building is somewhat of an icon in LA. Another place to visit if you have time. Book yourself an event or two.

I attended Anime Expo here and I was really impressed with the size of the convention center. Unfortunately I felt like the actual staff of the convention center didn't really care what was going on, we dealt with some really great employees and some really irritating ones. I was impressed with the amount of people the building could hold, but... More

The convention I attended was fabulous here. This place has very clean bathrooms, great food, large conference rooms with perfect temperature. All the stairs, elevators and escalators worked great. We had over 14,000 people and it was perfect. There was also lots of security. We all felt very safe.

As an LA native, I am incredibly partial to Staples because it is the home to the Lakers, Clippers, and Kings - all teams I root for. Great for games. Nothing spectacular beyond it being a good venue for sports and concerts. The grammys are hosted here, so there is that, too.

Thank msa23_2000

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
