While in Denver we stopped by Union Station to check it out, not really ready yet, still a lot of construction going on. If you are going to catch a train then your in luck, if you are going as a tourist to see, not much to look at. Architecture is amazing, history is great. Just didn't feel it during... More

In May I was excited that the California Zephyr (the train) was going to stop at the remodeled Union Station. While the outside track area is nice, the station itself was just so-so, confusing, and still n eeds major remodeling inside. Hopefully when complete, I will be able to give it a better rating. Its also extremely confusing where to... More

Arrived on Amtrak from Chicago, eager to behold the renovated Union Station. Alas, it was still fenced off and not accessible. Huge crowd gathered to board on the platform, instead of waiting inside the station for passengers like us to deboard. Result was chaos and dangerous crowding. No signage, and all acess to The street was blocked by fencing. No... More

My wife & I take the Light Rail to LoDo from Golden quite frequently and have watched the progress at Union Station. It has become quite an area to visit not only the remodeling of Union Station itself, but the whole area from the Light Rail drop-off, to the underground where all the buses end. It's a complete underground area... More

My husband & I had taken the Amtrak from Seattle to Denver, where our son & grandson were picking us up. Parking for him was not convenient and there was quite a walk from where we got off the train to his car. Hopefully, as they finish construction, things will improve.

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. Let the server know that you are on a tight schedule and you will have plenty of time to sip your martini and feel like you visited Denver in the... More

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!
