This building has become the iconic architectural wonder representing the best of Los Angeles for a good reason. It's wonderful to walk around the outside but even better to take a tour of the interior. The acoustics are perfect - all entertainers who perform here rave about their experience - so, ideally, grab a ticket for a concert and have... More

The architecture of this building is amazing. All Frank Gehry's buildings are works of art. The outside does get hot in the sun due to all the metal. The inside is spacious and well designed.

Although it has been open for so many years we did not have opportunity to visit until a friend sang in a choral performance at the hall. The architecture inside is impressive as outside, but the seats were extremely uncomfortable, reminded me of Staples Center, and we were in better location than when I was at the sports arena! It...

I believe, in my humble opinion, this is one of Frank Gehry's loveliest creations. The first time I saw it I was awestruck and could only stand across the street admiring his genius. I will admit, after several years the sight of it still takes my breath away. Kudos and well done Mr. Gehry.

The place is very nice. The architecture is amazing. You can see that far away. It's very close to the metro, if you are using public transportation. You must see inside!

Caught a concert by the Cal Phil called At the Movies and really enjoyed it. Of course the architecture is also amazing, well worth a visit for the building and a concert if possible.

Viewing the glaringly sun-reflecting pile of tin in an otherwise somewhat structurally attractive part of Los Angeles prepared us for the cheaply garish interior, but not for the steep balcony stairways nor for the tight seating. Rather took away from enjoyment of the performance.

Worth a visit just for the amazing building. Self guided tours are available but you can't get into the main auditorium.

My daughter and Iove being amateur photographers. This building was a perfect spot for us to experiment with lines and light. There are also some neat views of the city from the outdoor walkways. We never made it inside, but fully enjoyed walking all the way around the building by climbing the stairs on the right and working our way... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
