Good Venue For Sporting Events

Generally, I visit this venue for sporting games and even in the 300 level you have a good view of the court. I would recommend opting for 200 level seats or if you have to get... read more

Generally, I visit this venue for sporting games and even in the 300 level you have a good view of the court. I would recommend opting for 200 level seats or if you have to get 300 level seats go for the center section. The only knock on this venue is the lines can be lengthy to get into games... More

Okay, I didn´t choose the most expensive seats. But 100$ to see a regular season hockey game and have to see most of the game on the screen because there are many blindspots, it´s not really a great experience.

We were able to secure seats for the Kings' home opener vs. the Flyers. The game stunk (Flyers won) but we were able to see a world-class venue and a great crowd. Being Hurricanes fans, we don't like the Flyers. We are warmly welcomed by Kings fans. Food, and beer, were great!

Was fortunate enough to score tickets in a suite for this game. Wayne Gretsky and other hockey greats here. Great stadium with huge Jumbotron and many spectator games. Weird that the Flyers beat the Kings by the exact score that the Kings won with 50 years ago. Restrooms are clean and lines not too bad. Try to go during the... More

I have seen basketball and hockey games here on many, many occasions. Recently, I saw a concert and was pleasantly surprised at how well it looked and sounded.

Went for a basketball game while in Los Angeles. Had a great seat and enjoyed just being in the famed Staples Center. Got to see Kobe Bryant play; not a big fan, but nice to see a basketball great in action! Would come back and watch more Laker games if ever in LA again!

While holidaying in LA recently we were gifted some tickets to see the Lakers play at this venue. Once we arrived at the centre we found it was quite easy to get paid parking. For regulars it probably isnt cheap but when you dont know your way around except via a GPS you just park where you can & pay... More

You don't have to be attending an event at Staples Center to get the most out of the area: it's hopping with restaurants, movie theatres, etc but MOST OF ALL , you can just go and people watch, because it is a bee hive of energy-and interesting mix from those who have limos delivering them to concerts (or sports activities)to...

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.
