Gearing up for a getaway filled with memorable events and Los Angeles’ top tourist attractions? As a guest of Hotel Figueroa, you’re only steps away from a state-of-the-art performance venue like the Crypto.com Arena, formerly known as the Staples Center. From thrilling basketball games, to noteworthy concerts, this entertainment space offers unforgettable experiences for everyone in the family to enjoy.
Basketball lovers, concertgoers, and visitors wanting to experience the very best of Los Angeles are welcome to discover an impressive lineup of events at the entertainment center. Opened in October of 1999, the multi-purpose arena has become the premier event venue for Los Angeles, bringing four million visitors a year to South Figueroa Street in Downtown LA.
In 2021, the naming rights were acquired, transitioning the Staples Center into its rebranded identity as the Crypto.com Arena. From its cutting-edge LED lighting system, to its high-definition video screens, the arena sets the standard for state-of-the-art entertainment venues. Additionally, the stadium takes environmental sustainability seriously and has implemented eco-friendly initiatives like the use of rooftop solar panels and LED lights to dramatically reduce energy costs. With a seating capacity of up to 20,000, and an abundance of dining options available, you can comfortably experience the excitement and legacy that the arena has carried out over the years.
During basketball season, both the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers play their home games here—making it the only stadium in the country that’s home to two NBA teams. It also hosts the WNBA’s LA Sparks, and NHL’s LA Kings. Notorious for hosting seven NBA Finals, the Stanley Cup, and the WWE Championship, it’s no wonder that this arena has become a landmark location in the City of Angels.
Off season, there are more than 250 events hosted at the stadium, including past concerts from artists like Fleetwood Mac, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and more. As one of the country’s top music venues, it’s also the official home of the Grammy Awards, bringing the world’s most celebrated musicians under one roof for one of music entertainment’s biggest nights of the year.
If you’re attending an event at the venue, Hotel Figueroa is only a two-minute walk down Figueroa Street to the stadium and conveniently close to L.A. Live. Originally opened in 1926 as a hostel for solo female travelers, the hotel underwent a major renovation in 2015 to restore its original Spanish Colonial architecture. Today, it’s a luxurious boutique hotel with 268 rooms and suites, each one reflecting the hotel’s rich cultural history and timeless design. As you plan your trip to Los Angeles, know that Hotel Figueroa has everything you need for the trip of a lifetime.
