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

The Staples Center was clean, and easy to navigate. Staff were very helpful, and would go out of the way to help out-of-towners (we were wearing Blackhawks Jerseys). Plenty of places to get food and drinks. Getting in and out was not an issue. Only thing that could have been better is if the Hawks would have won in OT.

This was our first chance to watch professional sport in the States and we experienced the Clippers v the Thunder. Facility is superb with great eateries within and around the place, Even though we were up in the nosebleeds the experience was great and would definitely come back.

Plenty to eat in the area, well organised and easy to navigate throughout.It's clean and the view is great from section 102, not so much from section 107 which is right behind the support (for NBA games)

Great place for trade shows. Pretty easy parking but a bit expensive. The city is revitalized around there so a decent amount of good restaurants nearby.

This was our second NHL game on our USA vacation, and we know little about hockey, but are loving the live game experience. The Kings website states that additional tickets go out for open market sale at 1pm on game day so keep an eye out for that. We were able to pick up some row 8 centre ice tickets... More

Great view for all sports. Traffic was a little crazy entering the game, but leaving seemed to go pretty smooth. Had VIP seating,but didnt see the wait staff much.

This was a great night out at my first basketball game. Atmosphere was great. It was easy to get in and out without much of a delay. Be prepared to pay $12 plus for a beer though. Food and drink are so expensive. Lakers won and kept the other team below 100 points so we won 2 free tacos :-)... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood 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.
