A must-see stop if you are visiting the places where Blade Runner was filmd. In the film you can see it used as the police station. Of course colours and atmosphere is totally different, but you will be fascinated as soon you will enter and you will recognize it. Moreover, the whole place is incredibly clean if you think that...

It wasn't as nice as the recently renovated station in Denver, but nicer than the one in KC. If you're arriving by train you'll want to spend a minute or two wandering around, but it's not like I'd suggest you go there just for it.

I hadn't been to Union Station for years and was really happy to see how well it had been restored and maintained. The interior is one of the most beautiful of U.S. train stations and the exterior with its period architecture and gardens is work a circuit. Truly one of the city's best landmark features. By the way, it's also... More

Once threatened, Union Station is now beautifully restored and maintained in all of its Art Deco glory. The interior is fabulous and the grounds filled with well-kept flowers, palms and greenery.

A main hub between subways, buses, and trains. Easy to read directions make it easy to travel without a car. Extremely clean, with large rest rooms and good quick food on the go. I felt very safe with lots of security in sight.

Union station is a wonderful piece of architecture, and features a very good restaurant, and some lovely public spaces. Accessing the train tracks is fairly straightforward, but somewhat laborious. My large complaint is the transition in and out of the Metro station, which is poorly labeled- like most of the LA Metro. The other food and shop offerings are decent.

Beautiful building, art deco, original seats, set of many movies... The patio with its fountain and ceramic tile is peaceful even in the middle of the day.
