“Why?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Are you kidding. Who in their right mind would want to visit LA's City Hall. That would be a terrible waste of time.

“27th floor and 3rd floor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Very cool panorama views of the whole city from the top. Does not get busy at all and I think it's a gem. A bit old and dated but it's definitely worth a visit.

“Great place for a new visitor to see where things are around downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

The views of downtown and beyond from the 27th floor observation deck are impressive and helped us, as first-time visitors and on foot, see where different downtown points of interest were that we wanted to visit. The building is an impressive example of 1920s architecture. Access to the observation deck is free. However, one has to clear security and access is only available during normal weekday business hours. So, plan ahead.
