Staples Center is no doubt one of a premium sport arena. Open in 1999. Majority own by Anschutz Entertainment Group which they also 50% owner of Los Angeles King.
+ Have most of the popular sport and entertainment event.
+ Area constant added new stuff and soon will have a NFL Stadium nearby.
+ Mostly clean and restroom no major issue or smell.
+ Famous athlete like Magic, Oscar life size statue is display outside of the stadium.
+ Recently updated scoreboard and some minor updated.
+ Nearby is loads of re-seller shop, so if you got the $ you can easily find a good seat just about in any event.
+ Still affordable in some event like Clippers/Circus etc...
- Parking is a circus here even in weekday.
- Crime a bit high around the area.
- Can be confuse to access to the top floor.
- Low price ticket or seat are usually are poor view.
- Too crowded in most event due to the location.
- Most of affordable ticket in popular event often brought by reseller often jack up price quite high.
Staples Center is still consider most popular sport stadium in the west coast, so many event you can see if you got the $$$. However, there is some event for cheap like Clippers.
Some event even Lakers ticket can get under value price ticket if you goes to site like craigslist, usually a day or 2, someone might always try to sell ticket if they not able to attend especially season ticket holder. Is nice they going to build a NFL stadium nearby but is going to only mean traffic would be worst then already it is!

I came here for a Clippers game with friends and it was so much fun!
We had VIP tickets, which included special garage parking and VIP floor access. It was easy getting into and out of the parking lot. No traffic on the street from the garage when we tried to drive home.
Staff in the hallways were friendly and helpful. The bathroom facilities on the VIP floor were clean, spacious and not even crowded. The food options were decent, too. I liked how there was a DJ at the game; good tunes to get the crowd pumped up.

I don't know if the Staples Center really needs a review...Lakers...Kobe. Kobe...Lakers. Central location in downtown LA, and right across from it is the ESPN Zone.

So I have been at this place to see concerts, disney on ice, the kings, the lakers, USC, and something else once... Its a great place to enjoy an event.
It doesnt matter if you are wearing an oxygen mask becuase the altitude is so high... or you are down low looking up at this huge cavernous enclosure that appears ready to collapse on you.
None the less its a fun venue. Obviously we have to have scrunched seats to fit an extra row every 10 rows or wutever. But they have all the things you could desire at a stadium except reasonable prices on food souvenirs and beverages...
Definitely go there and catch a game or concert. Its well worth it!

This is a great place for concerts, UFC fights, sports games, you name it, this is a great place to watch. I went to opening night to see the LA Kings take care of business, and we had awesome seats, center ice. The seating in the arena is awesome all around, as well as the service. There is a menu in the seat so you can order the food, and the server comes around and takes your order. From there, you pay with cash or card, and they bring you your food. Great choices ranging from burgers, dogs, to soda and beer. The fans are awesome as always. Its a great place to be to watch any event! Suggestion, park in Lot C on Georgia Ave and grab a souvenir on your way out!

The Staples Center is part of the new LA Live complex that is now part of the heart of downtown Los Angeles. Home of the LA Lakers, LA Clippers, Kings, and countless entertainers. It is a huge arena which sits thousands of people. Close to a metro stop and plenty of restaurants.

The Staples Center is a great stadium to cheer on the LA sports teams and even for concerts. Even in the nosebleed seats you have a pretty decent view of the court and definitely feel like a part of the action. The only downside is the rows of seats (at least in the nosebleeds) are really close together so there isn't much leg room and your head could be hit by a tall person's knees sitting behind you. The lines for food are also long during half time, so try to go at other times.
