Great Facility

Went to see a Sparks game, it wasn't a huge crowd but the atmosphere was still good. Facilities are first class.

To view all the place's we passed on the bus tour you would really need to take a private tour car and then you would see so much more but at a price,,

Nothing special about staples. It's a big ole barn housing various events. Concerts, conventions and sports (go clippers) Standard seats. Standard accoustics for concerts. (The Forum has much better sound) Easy entrance and exit. Pleasent staff and security Plenty of parking off site for 10, 15 and 20

Took some out of town friends to Staples Center / LA Live. There are many restaurants, but if you aren't going to a Laker game (or other event, of course) there is not much to do besides eat and bowl! Worth seeing. I work nearby so I see it often.

The Staples Center was the beginning of the rebirth of Downtown Los Angeles. Followed by LA Live next door. This area is now the heart of Los Angeles and a must see for anyone visiting the city.

I thought Staple Center did a fantastic job with the Adele tour. It felt intimate even though there were over 10,000 people there. The sound was perfect, entry was easy and professional (purse searches). My only complaint was that the seats in the upper decks were seriously steep. I felt that if I stood up to dance, that I would... More

From men's AND women's basketball (be it Lakers, Clippers or Sparks) to ice hockey, I love coming to Staples Center, especially when I can snag a fresh Wetzel's Pretzel from the concourse. It's always clean, and I feel safe. Of course, all the big names in music pass through here, too. Nose bleed seats are fine and cheap! Just don't... More

This was a great venue for a concert as long as you are willing to pay for good seats. Some of the seats are up really high and if you have a fear of heights that is not a good place for you to be. Other than that this is a great place with lots of food options inside and... More

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.
