Rated 4.6 out of 5Roy Thomson Hall Star Rating

5 Star Rating This place is gorgeous, it sounds great and our seats despite being one of the cheaper options were in a great spot and very comfy. Cannot recommend enough especially if you can take advantage of their student pricing. Concessions are slightly pricy but it's to be expected.

4 Star Rating The staff are extremely helpful and you don't have to go far to get help. I attend the Angela Hewitt concert and got to meet her after. What a pleasure it was to meet such a humble person. Her grace showed when she talked to you.

5 Star Rating Beautiful, centrally located steps from Union Station, subway, trolly cars and bus service. Seating is spacious by today's standards and seats are large enough and firm enough to provide lasting comfort. Coat check was super fast and bathrooms are available in several convenient spots. Ramps and elevators are handy for wheelchair guests. The stage is very large with everything visible from all seats. The sound system and overall acustics make hearing clear and easy. The wrap around lobby provides ample break space even for crowds of 1800.

5 Star Rating The seats were great. we sat in the M row seats 1 and 2 centre isle. Not to close to strain your neck and not so far that you can't enjoy The movement of the musicians. The sound was perfect. You could make out all the instruments the acoustics were amazing.

5 Star Rating This place is fantastic. One of the hallmarks of the city indeed. Since I’m new in town, I only had the chance to visit it three or four times, but each experience was very unique. The seats are comfortable and you can have a good view even from the cheaper seats at the balcony (yes, I can’t afford the best seats... yet!) The last concert I attended at RTH was the Messiah, by Handel. An absolutely mesmerizing experience that I’d like to repeat whenever I have the chance.
