Just returned from attempting to take our daughter and two children to catch the California Zepher at the new (still under construction) Union Station. Finding the UNMARKED drop off location was a nightmare. Finally dropped them on the Weywatta St. near what appeared to be some sort of entrance. There were only two signs indicating the station on Wyncoop St.... More

If you have 45 minutes or more on an evening Amtrak stopover, walk briskly up 17th Street to the Cruise Room in the Oxford Hotel and enjoy a great martini.

You know you're visiting a place with a ton of history as soon as you sit in one of the benches in the spacious waiting room of Union Station.

Union Station once served as the gateway to Denver, and the current renovations promise to return it to its former glory (including restaurant patios, fountains, a large public square, and gorgeously landscaped gardens). Although you won't be able to see the inside until the renovations are completed (in mid-2014), the exterior is absolutely beautiful and deserves a visit.

There is a great deal of construction going on there. You can still catch a train near there. When this is done, it looks like it will be magnificent! It was always easy to get to the bus stop or to the train tracks and it seems like it will be just as easy!

This is a great architectural building with a style that is not repeated in any of the modern transportation hubs that this station is undergoing. I cannot wait to see how they transform this train station into a modern multi-transportation hub (train, bus, taxi, metro rail) while preserving the classic styling of this old train station.

The building is awesome, the staff was efficient, and the train was on time. The gift shop was well-stocked and the bathrooms were clean.

Denver's first train station was constructed in 1868 to serve the new Denver Pacific Railway, which connected Denver to the main transcontinental line at Cheyenne, Wyoming. Now it's under construction and when complete, will house the various means of transportation. It will be as grand as some of the European stations!

Wander in here when you're in LoDo. Very nice historic building and I hear they are going to do more for the building; can't wait to see what transpires.
