  • Booked 2 tickets for the lakers vs orlando magic game. Was absolutely thrilling from start to finish. Unfortuately lakers lost the game, but the place is amazing. Really loved the shop as well. Do not...  more »
  • It is an emblematic place, the design is very nice, very comfortable facilities, the income very easy and simple, the game I attended was with the clipper, to the entry they gave us a Rubik cube per child, they were three hours of great fun, the spectacle of lights impressive, no matter that not be fond of basketball just be enjoying a game of NBA Live is fascinating, costs of products within the building is very high, which I recommend be prepared with at least with 30 dollars for pers ONA for their consumptions inside the stadium, I recommend this attraction, is a fact that I'll be back. recommend buying your tickets online to make your access more quickly. There is a parking lot outside the stadium to a 50 meters away just across the street as well as being less expensive than the stadium. It is important to take pictures before and during the match, since to the term only have a few minutes to dislodge since security personnel requires you to you desalojes immediately to the end of the party outside the stadium there are many restaurants and attractions by enjoy

  • A very good sports venue, which they keep updating to make sure it's still in good shape. I'm a big fan, though the high seats there are higher than any others, since there are three levels of suites.  more »

  • I went to a hockey game there. My team the Minnesota Wild played the LA Kings. The Will lost 5 to 4 in a thrilling OT game. I wore my jersey and the LA King fans were respectful to me. The promenade was nice and it was easy to get snacks while getting back to our seats in a timely fashion. There was a line for the bathrooms but they also moved really quickly. The setting at the game on the ice was amazing as well. If touring LA I highly recommend adding this to a bucket list.
  • As a major concert venue, the Staples Center is one of the better options for its size... The sound quality is good and everything is very professional and reliable. Being inside avoids issues with the sun or weather, and it is really amazing how quickly the place empties at the end. It's still too large, most of the audience is watching the screens rather than the stage just because of the distance, but this is the only way for tens of thousands of fans to see popular performers - one or two shows here or 20+ shows at a smaller venue.
  • Seats are well placed. I recently went fine the monster jam show, I sat at the very top and it felt so close. I didn't even need to buy the expensive tickets. That's how good the view was. All the restaurants in there are more expensive than going to the regular outside place. But that's expected.
  • Very quick to get in and out. Even the nosebleed seats have a good view of the event (although bringing binoculars is a good idea to zoom in on you favorite player). Staff is nice and as expected, food is expensive. Other than that it's very clean and offers a good experience. I usually try to park at a non-staples parking garage as there are many a minute or two walk away and they're cheaper. Go Kings!
  • I came here with my oldest son for his first basketball game. We had a great time! He really enjoyed it. The staff was very friendly and helped us find our seats. It was a great experience overall. I would recommend this venue to anyone.
