Located near the St. Louis Arch, the Station is a piece of history in need of lots of revitalization. I was surprised by the emptiness of this complex. Originally, the station was a hub of rail activity and transportation. The Grand Hall retains its impressiveness with romanesque-style decorations and awesome windows and paintings. The outside facade is also monumental and... More

What an amazing piece of history and artwork. Just a fantastic place to be in really. The lights in the lobby/hotel section at the front were gorgeous and the shops inside are cool just from the outside.

From the moment we pulled up to the moment we left it was wonderful! The staff is simply amazing!!! They accommodate your every need! Every staff person you pass has a pleasant disposition and will greet you with a smile and a hello. From the bell hops to the front desk to housekeeping to the restaurant and lounge staff; everyone... More

This place has potential to be great...just not great now. There are a couple restaurants and a neat fudge place, but the stores are similar to airport stores.

This is a spectacular place. The hotel lobby is the historic Union Station. It is breathtaking. Service was wonderful. But the best part of the stay was the food in the hotel resturaunt. The slow cooked pork was to kill and die for. The gooey butter cake puts all southern deserts to shame. The service was very attentive, warm, and... More

I know it was cold and it was Sunday, but is St Louis only populated by cars? Where are the people? Visited the Arch on Sunday - great attraction. Went for late lunch afterward and could not find a place open - McCledes Landing - was all but shut up. Thanks to Marcels Bar & grill we avoided frostbite and... More

The Union Station Hotel has quite nice accommodations, but there is a sense of isolation now that Union Station is almost deserted of shops/boutiques. In addition, the restaurant was a bit pretentious and drafty. Parking was not easy to figure out - different entrances/exits for different hours, looong unmarked walk to your own vehicle if your exit was at "off-hours"..... More

Be sure to visit the lobby of Union Station at Christmas, especially in the evening! A stunning light show and all the Christmas decor' will really put you in the holiday mood. Tip: alcohol is pretty pricy at the bar, but you don't have to imbibe to be able to watch the show.
