Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This library was built in 2 stages; the older is worth exploring for its architecture and design but the newer is less interesting. There are walking tours nearby that can teach about the history, so they're definitely worth taking to make the most of visiting this space. Make sure you check out the children's section - it's the most interesting room.

    We visited the Bowl in mid September. We saw a pianist named Lang Lang, along with the LA Symphony. It was a great experience. We ate at a lovely restaurant prior to the show, found our seats with ease, had great views of the performers and overall truly enjoyed visiting this historic venue.

    Attend conventions in LA on an annual basis and the building is definitely central to LA with many things around. Could use an upgrade as it seems old but the staff is very helpful and the conventions are well organized.

    My great-grandfather was an elevator repairman. He was killed in the elevator shaft at Bullocks Wilshire in 1923, I believe. This was long before "lock out tag out", and he was crushed by the elevator car at the bottom of the shaft while he was working on it. My whole family knows about the death of my grandfather's father, but no one else seems to know about it. I searched the history on the building, and there's no mention of the tragedy anywhere, though I suppose Bullocks would not have wanted that info circulated given the high end nature of the store. I was able to find some haunted info surrounding the elevator shaft, but the "rumor" is that it's haunted by a little girl who fell from a doorway into the shaft. It's weird that the building haunt is taking place in the elevator shaft though. Though I'm guessing it's more my great-grandfather than a child.

    I wish someone would do a paranormal investigation there.

    Why it's located where it is remains a mystery to me, but it's loaded with great brochures, maps, pamphlets and discount vouchers, plus a very friendly and accommodating staff. Parking is a challenge and you'd do best walking there from other downtown venues. ...

    Edward Doheny established his wealth in the oil business after drilling the first successful oil well in Los Angeles in 1892.

    After the late 1920s death of his son by shooting, Doheny made philanthropic endowments to numerous causes. This beautiful library is the result of one such, built in 1932 as a memorial to Edward Jr.

    Elaborate decorative features are its hallmark. Readings rooms are magnificent with ornate ceilings and lighting.

    An Academic Museum is hosted in the grand faculty hall. It gives an interesting account of the university, including notable teachers therein such as the famous composer Arnold Schoenberg.

    Stepping into the main reading room is to see a marvellous and evocative space.

    Church-like with a centre area bounded by columns and arches, it is most apt as a repository for philosophical tomes and collections.

    Stained glass windows were luminous in the dazzling morning sunshine, bringing to mind the scholarly illuminations from the great volumes held here.

    Compared to the rest of the terminal it was an oasis. It was quite with coffee, tea, and fountain drinks. The buffet was continuously being restocked. Yes, it is sandwiches and salads and some of us don’t care for our free to be out in the open like that but it was fresh and nice. The seats were comfortable. And I did see some people sleeping in the back couches on the porch. It was on touch on the cold side inside. The staff were friendly. There is an open bar there. We will be staying there again on our long haul back home.

    An entrance that is exquisitely embellished with scholarly and classical references is just one of the great architectural features in stone.

    Symbols of learning such as the classics, science, astronomy and mathematics adorn an arc over the doorway. Within the arc is wonderful braiding with a centrepiece of two scholars on each side of an owl of wisdom.

    Completed in 1929, the name honours Lawrence Powell who was UCLA Librarian for 17 years from 1944.

    Inspired by the styling of Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio in Milan it houses a tremendous collection of books and manuscrips, in additional to being a grand legacy from UCLA’s early days.

    Polaris Lounges are United's exclusive airport hideaways reserved for business-class flyers traveling on long-haul flights. They feature a la carte dining, a premium liquor selection, marble-clad shower suites and additional bespoke amenities, like nap rooms and phone booths.

    I highly recommend United Airlines.
