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

When we saw them, there was no clear difference in class between the teams and made it an entertaining match as it was not one sided. The presentation and atmosphere was one of the best i have experienced

I went to a Clipper game against a weak 76'er team. It was ok . We had very good seats about 10-15 rows behind the Basket. The owner was sitting right there behind the basket in the front row. It's a Clipper game so not as exciting as the the old Championship Lakers. Ticket prices are based on the quality... More

I actually didn't go in but it was one of my stops on my Michael Jackson tour. This was the last place Michael performed in the form of his This Is It rehearsals.

We were there to see Adele. The Stage was set up in a manner that half the concert was in the center of the floor. The Staples center seems to have events down to a science, from the opening of the doors to the close of the event. This is our second trip that we attended an event there. Great... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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.
