flying in and checking out the Lakers vs OKC game on Dec. 19 and just wanted to know what good hotels are around the Staples Center but not so expensive? I'm only going back the next day in the afternoon or evening. Any good eats worth checking out? Any cool attractions worth checking out around the area? Thanks guys!

Plenty of hotels and restaurants to be had in the area. Boring chain stuff at LA Live which is next to Staples but go a bit further into downtown LA and there has been a culinary explosion over the past few years (see link below for some good suggestions). 7th Street alone has: MoChica (great Peruvian), Mas Malo (Mexican) and Bottega Louie (Italian) to name a few.

You did not give your hotel budget but some of the "cheaper" hotels in close proximity to the arena are: the Hotel Figueroa and the "O" Hotel on Flower Street. The Luxe City center is higher priced but still below the JW Marriot and Ritz Carlton which are in the LA Live complex next to Staples Center.

For attractions downtown LA has museums, architectural landmarks (newer: Disney Hall, older: Bradbury building, Broadway), nightclubs/bars, restaurants, etc.

I was looking at the Shelter Hotel. Looks nice and price seems reasonable.

If you choose the Shelter in Koreatown, I hear the Roy Choi's Pot Restaurant the Line Hotel is good, I havent tried. It's only 2 blocks away. Lots of great Korean food scattered around the area. If you choose Downtown then there are several hotels in the ~$100 range like the Ritz Milner and Stillwell and Stay on Main (Cecil). Youll need to Yelp and see what people who stayed here say about it. Lots of restaurants and bars scattered throughout Downtown. LA Live restaurants are chain but mostly "upscale" chains. Several nice cheaper places at Fig@7th and Grand Central Market.

Thank you for that detailed response. Appreciate it.

Not a fan of bus tours. Any time I see a bus driving around all I can think is, you're wasting your money. I would just google a few places of interest to you and if you're staying in Koreatown, you can hop on the red line to go to DTLA (staples center), Hollywood (sign & walk of fame), Universal (Universal studios & city walk).

Let us know what your interests are or what you want to see on a bus tour and we can better tell you where to go / what to do.
