I expected the Walt Disney Concert Hall is be really great - and it exceeded my expectations. The Concert Hall is beautiful, beyond first class and has the most amazing acoustics one can imagine. It doesn't matter much what you are about to see - just being in the Concert Hall makes it better.

We walked around the outside of this fabulous building designed by Frank Gehry to capture the many varied views from different angles. It glistened in the sunlight one day, was more subdued on a cloudy day, but breathtaking whatever the weather. Inside is also wonderful, especially the concert hall itself, which is visually beautiful and unusual and acoustically excellent. As... More

A wonderful place to see beautiful architecture and listen to incredible music. The acoustics are phenomenal. There is not a bad seat in the house. Parking can be a challenge at times so allow for plenty of time. Great local restaurants in the area.

Good to spend an hour or so here just to admire the architecture. Go to the top from its outside, and find a nice garden. It requires some effort to get here as it is located on top of a hill, hence you have to hike a little bit to get here on foot. Best to catch transport to reach... More

The Walt Disney concert Hall As I was driving to downtown Los Angeles on July 5, 2016 we passed by the Walt Disney concert Hall. I just can't believe the architecture of the building. It is like gigantic steel plates that are being thrown by the wind. Well it was designed like that. It looked as if the building was... More

The exterior is immediately recognizable, but it is the outstanding acoustics and inventive seating arrangements that make this place special.

We attended the visiting China Philharmonic Orchestra concert, featuring 12-year-old Serena Wang playing Beethoven's Piano Concerto Number One, and from our seats on the Terrace could watch her fingers fly without sacrificing a balanced sound from the orchestra. We had a memorable experience.

I wanted to kill an hour or two, and this turned out to be a delightful surprise. If you go, get the headset and do the self guided tour. The views on the top are great on a sunny day.

Went to go see the LA Philharmonic and not only was the performance outstanding, the building was both unique and pleasant to the eye. It's a great place to show to your friends on social media

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood 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.
