Beautiful concert hall with amazing acoustics

Get your tickets behind the orchestra and have a clear view of the conductor. Definitely an experience in its own.

You have to experience a concert inside this beautiful hall. One big advantage is that nearly all seats are good so you don't need to always get the high priced seats. The sound and acoustics are stellar and during intermission you should take a walk outside and enjoy the elevated gardens.

By their own admission, the Disney is uncomfortable for anyone over (as I recall) 5'8''. Sadly, I am over 6 feet. Last Sunday I sat through a performance of Mahler's Ninth, 90 minutes without an intermission. It has taken two days for my knees to stop hurting. If you were born in the last 70 years, do not go to... More

Well worth the trip to see the concert hall. Unfortunately we were not allowed inside, so only looked at the outside of the building which is just amazing such a different building.but worth the visit.

We stopped here primarily because we love the movie "Get Smart" and this building features prominently in that movie. We were extremely impressed with the architecture, and the surrounding outdoor area. We were here on a Saturday and had the pleasure of seeing several wedding parties here to take pictures. We went inside the building (primarily because we asked a... More

The arquitect who created the facade of the concert hall is the same of Guggenheim Bilbao, Frank Gehry. It`s wonderful to see it. We went in the morning, so it was closed for concerts, but it has an interesting interior. And the gift shop has very interesting products.

This place is just fantastic and the acoustics in the hall are incredible. Had the pleasure of seeing Gustavo Dudamel conduct and John Adams introduce one of his own original works which was a bonus. If you ever want to hear great music the way it was meant to be heard in a truly beautiful hall, attend a concert here.... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
