  • 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.
