Great Venue For Sports or Concerts

The building itself is very modern and the seating is close to the event. Watched a Laker Game and it was quite a treat.

We watched the LA Clippers take on the Portland Trail Blazers on the first night of our holiday in November. Even though the match was pretty one sided with the Clippers destroying the Trail Blazers, it was still a very enjoyable experience. The atmosphere before, during and after was always friendly and fun. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful... More

Recently took my son to our first NHL game on our holiday from Australia. LA Kings vs NY Islanders. It was the highlight of our trip. Fantastic atmosphere, high speed, high skilled, and physical/brutal game. Atmosphere was electric after goals were scored. Having seen NBA, NFL, and MLB live, the hockey was definitely the best entertainment. Staples centre and surrounds... More

Good choice of food in the center. The center was clean and had friendly staff. The only problem will all the construction around the center, go early so you are not delay and miss any of the concert or sporting event.

Went to see a Lakers game and had a brilliant time. Highly recommended and fun for all the family. There is fast food and drink available inside and a Lakers store to buy all your branded items.

We went to the Clippers game here and there was a lot of temporary fencing up for the American Music awards so it felt a bit enclosed when entering. One problem was waiting in line to get into the centre through security. We arrived a bit earlier so we would be able to buy some merchandise. There was no indication... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood 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.
