Take the express elevator to the 22nd floor, then the next elevator to the 26th for incredible 36* views of LA with legend boards to identify the landmarks. Then descend to the 3rd floor to admire the ceiling and chandelier before you go.

It's a beautiful building and a place that everyone living in or visiting Los Angeles should see. The interior architecture is fascinating and a (free) trip to the observation deck will give you a great view of LA

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
