I was very impressed with the Staples Center. Parking is quite expensive, maybe you can take bus or taxi. The Center is very clean and well kept. There's fast food (hot dogs, popcorn, etc.), and a nice restaurant. Drink prices are definitely over priced, but when you're having fun, who cares! Seating is great, but watch out when you sit in the nose bleed section... feels like you're gonna fall!
