Is The La Convention Center The Same As The Staples Center?

It's not the same thing but they are right next to each other. The Los Angeles Convention Center and the Staples Center are right next to each other. You can get a good overhead view on Google Maps here:http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&btnG=Google+Search&um=1&q=convention+center&near=Los+Angeles,+CA&fb=1&cid=0,0,456421801450431528&sa=X&oi=local_result&resnum=1&ct=imageThe web site of the convention center is http://www.lacclink.com/The street address is:1201 South Figueroa StreetLos Angeles, CA 90015p: 213.741.1151The convention center is adjacent to the downtown area which is where you are likely to find the nicer hotels. It should be not much more than a one mile cab ride. Most travel web sites like Travelocity, Expedia, and Hotels.com will allow you to search for hotels based on proximity to a specific landmark like the convention center.
