What a wonderful way to create wanderlust! The newly remodeled and open Union Station is a great way to spend a Friday evening. There are shops food and drinks aplenty and the train schedule is great and creates an interesting mix of social gatherers and train travelers ~ we spent about an hour wandering with our beverages in hand bought...

Union Station has been renovated as part of RTD's Light Rail and Bus System. The renovation retains much of it's original charm and highlights the original design. Bars, restaurants, and shops adorn this historic Denver train station.

Union station is beautiful and a great job has been done in the renovations. There are many choices of places to eat and the old ticket office has been made into a bar. The choice of beers there is immense. The Crawford Hotel looks good as you access it from the station but cannot comment on the rooms. I was... More

This is a nice little hub for Denver which includes a redone lobby with a bar along with some restaurants, ice cream shop and boutiques. Also located there, the Hotel Crawford, a very romantic place to hang out or an easy access get together spot. Come sit in the lobby with a cocktail and experience the old train station feel... More

We were taking the Amtrak out of Denver and had a couple hour layover. The Amtrak area is stuck in a corner and the trains are not allowed to blow their whistle because of the expensive hotel which is in the station. It's a train station...let the whistle blow! Hubby got a beer and we were sitting in one of... More

It was a rainy ( rare) day in Denver so my husband and I and our daughter and her new husband came to visit the station. It was really cool, very large and although we hadn't seen before pictures, really impressive. Plus, if you're a foodie you'll enjoy the ice cream shop and especially Provisions. Great open space, people watching.... More

They did a great job keeping the character of the old train station, and by adding the hotel, bars, and restaurants this has become a must see destination when visiting Denver.

The historic train station got a gorgeous face lift including gleaming marble and crystal chandeliers. The large lobby includes a long bar, food places, and shops. Young people on dates seem to like buying a drink and chatting in the waiting room. It is very classy. There is a new, up-scale hotel attached as well. The train area has also... More

Denver did an excellent job of renovating the old Union Station. They added a nice Hotel and several places to eat. All city transportation, bus, train, and light rail run from the new system. A great place to hang out even if your not traveling anywhere. Dan and Phyllis Denver, CO
