There's the Staples Center, the Microsoft Theatre, and numerous, pricey restaurants. the restaurants are ok but the quality seems to be suffer in comparison to the same restaurants in other less touristy locations.

Stop by for a sports event or something to eat, its a convenient walk from the convention center and is safe and clean.

The Live grounds were awesome but LA is consistently under-whelming. Everything is a horrible shade of tan, barbed wire over most signs, too many homeless, smalls of human feces, and too expensive. Use 3D on Google Maps.

This is no longer just the Staple Center - great entertainment and restaurants! If you are at any of the 4 Marriott Properties - you do not need a car, just hang out and enjoy the atmosphere!

if you have business with the convention center, then this area is convenient. Otherwise, you are wasting your time. Every restaurant is a chain and mostly rather mediocre. I'd rather walk for 30 mins than eat at any venue around here.

Downtown
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
