The lobby area is really quite ornate and nice. It is worth a visit, but don't plan on being "wowed".

Only found out about this through Trip Advisor and glad I did. After going through security I headed for the observation deck at the top. A fantastic view across the city. I was pretty much the only person there and it's worth making a stop. Will only take you 10 or 15 minutes but I'd definitely recommend it.

Go to the 26th floor, it's a great view of the entire City including the famous Hollywood sign. Plus it's free! After that you can go across the street and check out the Great Park

2 free things to see here:
After passing basic security measures (metal detector)...
a) The rotunda, hall and dome on the 3rd floor: nice architecture and decor.
b) The observation deck on the 27th floor. You get outside on the balcony and walk around 360 degrees for wonderful views of downtown LA, El Pueblo historical district and other surrounding areas and even of the Hollywood Sign far away.
Your in downtown LA visiting, so take a few minutes and stop by City Hall, it's worth it.

Los Angeles City Hall was built in 1928 and was the tallest building in the city until the 1960, but still stands tall and te northeast end of downtown. Designed by Austin, Martin, and Parkinson, it has elements of Art Deco and Streamline Modern with many classical elements.

The rotunda is on the third floor with a large dome above. Also on the third floor are displayed several gifts from sister cities. gifts include a Korean Turtle Ship, the Mikoshi frm Nagoya, and a musical clock.

Tours are offered.
