Twenty years past we visited this location and spent the afternoon as there was many things to do and enjoy. We returned this year and were sadly disappointed as many of the places we visited have departed and what remains are unappetizing food options and stores that sell overpriced and shoddy goods. There is nothing there to attract tourists to... More

This spot is STILL among my favorites in St. Louis, even though I've noted that some other visitors to St. Louis have decried the closing of so many of the businesses inside the attached mall. Well........HELLO, people...did you all not notice a recent economic downturn?!? We're lucky they stuck it out to keep the mall open at all, but better... More

The building and hotel were beautiful . Once you got into the building it was disappointing. Some of the shops were nice, the food court was a flop. The highlight was the fudge shop all varieties were delicious.

We loved the location the Hard Rock close by. Even thing was A OK fun. The only problem was poor, poor WIFI. We had to walk to the middle hall to get sports scores. Jerry, the valet supervisor, was great fun. We need him in Mississippi.

Union Station is a gorgeous place to visit, but has become more of a vacant mall than anything else. While Union Station is still one of my favorite places just for the history and beauty, don't plan on spending much time here. If you love old buildings, visit and check out the hotel as well. Both are well preserved and... More

We happened to walk in to Union Station because it looked so beautiful from the outside. Inside we found a breathtaking atmosphere. The martinis were delicious and the surroundings prefect for a quiet conversation. The hourly light show was an added bonus! Great place to wander in for a drink with comfy furniture.

Looking at the building and grounds, we thought it looked fun... only to be fooled once we walked into the mall area. Oh my gosh, it was almost scary. More stores closed down than open, a couple places to eat... but, my thought was.. how safe can this food be if no one is here.... ? I imagine that in... More

Even though it is well kept and inviting it is true that the mall portion is very sad and lonely. The hotel is a different story with its atmosphere. The beautiful hallway - meeting area was very welcoming. The light show(s) were amazing and drew you in to relax and imagine. We stayed on the 5th floor, fountain side. When... More
