Downtown Los Angeles Arena and Peacock Theater

Five minutes from our front door, the illustrious Arena plays host to hundreds of LA’s most sought-after live events. The NBA’s Lakers and Clippers, the WNBA’s Sparks, and the NHL’s Kings all play their home games here. Known as one of the best concert venues in Los Angeles, the world’s biggest musical acts including Madonna, The Rolling Stones, Adele and Jay Z have hit the stage to wow crowds of up to 20,000. The arena is also a must-stop for a range of distinct events, from stand-up comedy and award shows, to the circus and the Gold Over America Tour featuring the most decorated gymnast in history, Simone Biles. And just across the street from Arena is the Peacock Theater in the L.A. Live entertainment district, a slightly more intimate venue (capacity of just over 7,000) that hosts big name acts from Steely Dan to Sesame Street Live as well as beloved award shows like the ESPYs and the Emmys. If you’re seeking a memorable entertainment experience in LA, Arena and Peacock Theater offers some of the best in the city and Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown ensures you’re close to the action.

Dodgers Stadium

Dodger Stadium

The legendary Dodger Stadium is more than home base for the MLB’s Los Angeles Dodgers and one of the city’s largest event venues, it’s an LA icon. Just a short drive from Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown, Dodger Stadium is the third oldest ballpark in the U.S. (though it’s seen some major upgrades since its 1962 inception), and is considered one of the most beautiful stadiums in America, offering stunning views of the San Gabriel Mountains. Beyond baseball, Dodger Stadium’s concert history is a who’s-who of the most popular artists and bands of the last century, from Paul McCartney and Beyonce to Dead and Company and BLACKPINK with major upcoming acts, including P!nk, performing in 2024.
