  • Had a great time going to the big 3 championship game. The staff was friendly and courteous. The seats are comfortable. Of course everything is pricey but it comes with the experience. You will definitely see celebrities! I would definitely come back.
  • Parking was prepaid on line so that process was easy. We found a parking spot close to the escalator. Getting from the parking structure to the Staples center was difficult. Very few signs and no one to direct us. Once we arrived at the Venue the staff were amazing. Polite, helpful, informative and they directed us to where we needed to go. The seats were comfortable and the sound quality was perfect. This was money well spent.
  • Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Well organized store, very easy to find everything! Great prices, I usually end up spending less than I thought I would!
  • Always a pleasure going here for concerts or sports. The parking is usually $20 not too bad. Their are a lot of amenities surrounding the staples and I enjoy it!
  • The Staples Center in Los Angeles, California is an excellent sports, concert, and other social event venue and location. There are numerous nearby dinning options in most every price range and quality level. Foodie options are okay, but most dinning options tend to cater to a sports venue menu and quality level. Paid parking is convenient and prices are in line with a city center sports and other event venue.
