We loved the union station in Denver. My husband and I spent the afternoon here waiting on our Amtrak connection. We did a little sightseeing in the area and had a lovely lunch at the sushi place called Blue. Then we returned to union station because it was very cold out and we decided this was the best place for... More

The city of Denver did a great job restoring this historic train station! It is the center of public transportation and has many new great restaurants, shops and a hotel. This has added to the options folks have when dinning and shopping in LoDo. Look for the two shuffleboard tables in the middle of the main terminal for a game... More

The historic facade is now hidden behind modern piping and roofing for the train platforms, the interior has little historic or architectural appeal as it has all been hidden behind restaurant and gift shop menus and signage. Coffee, Food and gift trinkets are available. I cannot comment on the Hotel portion as I did not visit that portion of the... More

If you are into train stations or well restored historic buildings, then Union Station is well worth the visit. It's easy access from the 16th St. Pedestrian Mall. This is truly an impressive historic restoration. There's places to shop or get a snack, coffee or drink, or you can just go in to look around.

The newly remodeled Union Station was a really fun night out! There are many different types of bars and restaurants to choose from, lots of people watching and two awesome shuffleboard tables in the middle of it all! A good place to go with a group of friends or a date!

great renovation of a historic building, many planners should visit this and learn renovation is best. Amtrak and bus station and local light rail all meet here, a few speciality shops and restaurants, coffee shops give plenty choice. worth the visit and the 16th street free shuttle stops here.

Beautiful renovation of one of the most historic buildings in denver. Great place to meet for a drink, get a bite or get ice cream. Too bad Amtrak will never match the quality of the terminal but hopefully the new rail options around denver will.

My wife and I have been exploring new places for date night and decided to give the newly renovated Union Station a Go. Half way through the night we decided the place is a MUST do again and now a destination for out of town visitors! Convenient valet parking out front (the old spots have been removed and a parking...

We walked through to see the renovations. Lots of small eating cafes and small shops, including a book shop. We used this as our pickup and drop off site with taxis. Close to the 16 st mall and other sites of interest.
