Easy walk from our hotel. Approach it from University St. which is less steep than Seneca. Two eating establishments just outside the lobby make a convenient place to eat before the event.

Had the pleasure last night of attending the annual Christmas concert of the Seattle Men's Chorus in celebration of gay and straight harmony at Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle. Parking was conveniently located under the venue and events management was efficient and fast. The foyer of the Hall was festively decorated and bustling but we received lots of assistance finding...

This isn't the ornate, gold covered building of antiquity that I'm used to in large cities. Instead it's a very modern building with nice seating. We've been to two events here. I wouldn't recommend the 2nd Tier seating (we had no leg room and had to turn our heads sideways to see the stage), but try to stay down in... More

Phenomenal Acoustics; functional, simple, and delightful interior architecture. I have been going since it opened and have listened to a variety of musical genres (Classical, Modern Classical, Jazz, Traditional, and Pop; to name a few), and in most cases, the hall has greatly enhanced the experience. If you live in Seattle and haven't been to a concert there; you need... More

I like this better than the old "Opera House" which is now McCaw Hall. The acoustics are great. Warm wood and striking modern design. The main lobby is gorgeous. Try to take in a symphony performance here!

The Hall has great acoustics and ambience. It is somehow intimate and sizable at the same time. The seats are comfortable and almost every one offers a decent view.

The hall is stunning and the concert was diverse in selections. Something for everyone - excellent violin concertos by Augustin Hadelich, international contemporary music, and 18th century European music. Nothing to dislike.

Great acoustics and the stadium seating allows for excellent view from any seat. We have season tickets to the symphony. Location is convenient - within walking distance from the ferries. The orchestra is superb and has improved immensely over the last 15 years or so. In past, we have had season txs in San Francisco, LA, and Phoenix. Seattle equal... More
