I cannot comment the inside of this arena as I wasn't there for a game. During our LA visit we just came to tribute the legendary LA Lakers and to make some pics in front with it's legends like Jabbar and others.

This is a big daddy of all coliseums. Huge. Went to a Kings game at the last minute and found tickets that were easy to get at the box office. Has plenty of parking areas within walking distance. Has your normal overpriced food and drink but lots of options. Outside area seemed pretty safe for coming and going.

Better than average coliseum. Lots of food and drink options, and places to sit and eat that food and drink other than your seat. Went here for a concert, and they could have been more organized with getting concert-goers in and out, but overall average for that. Sound was great.

We visited the Staples Center on Valentine's Day for the Lakers game vs. the Kings. It was a great game and the Staples Center is a beautiful arena! We really enjoyed our time there!

We were here in December for a Clippers game and coming from abroad and watching your favorite players live was awesome! The venue was nice (albeit with crazy expensive parking) and has good food choices inside with it being one of the premier arenas in the world. Seating was good with nice space to cheer during the game. Sound systems... More

We were there for the NHL All-Star Games Jan 28th and 29th. I had promised my son we would eat there while watching the games, and as an out-of-towner, I was surprised with the food options. Expensive yes, but what a great selection. The long line-ups moved fast. The Staples Centre itself is huge. We found it (and the bathrooms)... More

I originally intended to come to see the Lakers play, but unfortunately since they were out of the playoffs, we were compelled to watch the Clippers instead. It was still a thrilling experience to have visited a place with so much sporting history and it is only second to Madison Square Garden in terms of iconic NBA venues.

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.
