The lay-out of this Concert Hall is wonderful. Circular, cozy and just right, with doors leading into balconies and mezzanines in a way that disperses crowds efficiently and gets everyone to their seats in a happy fashion. The staff are friendly and helpful. A treat attending a concert at Roy Thomson Hall.

No better place to listen to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. The sound is rich and clear. The seating is well laid out and comfortable no matter where you are. The only issue I have is with the washrooms which can be a hidden in mazes of corridors. The venue itself otherwise is the perfect place for a concert event or lecture. I

Whether you're attending a concert, live performance or a conference, you'll be left breathless by the spectacular architectural design and the spacious stage and seating area. The speakers are placed well and you'll never have trouble hearing the main attraction. I've personally been here for a multitude of events and I've left recharged and refreshed.

Great venue for a great performance. Only weird thing is that there weren't any waste bins where I was standing before the show... only a recycle bin. No doubt people put everything into the recycling, making it a pointless effort. Again though... great venue.

The architecture and design of Roy Thompson is amazing. Breathtaking Beautiful place! They really make you feel at home and welcome with complimentary tea, coffee and water. A little nice gesture can go a long way. If your visiting at night make sure you go outside to the park next door to capture some pictures. Looks amazing at night! Great venue!! Very clean and lots of helpful staff.
