We enjoyed looking at the historical building, but as for the renovation into a mall, we were not impressed. It could be so much more! We of course bought some fudge there, but you can't help it, after they give you a free sample.... Fun to ride the metra there, walk through and leave...

St. Louis Union Station is a sad, run down, shadow of what it was in the late 80s and early 90s. It's downfall came because of persistent crime, car break ins, robberies, and intimidating trashy thugs malingering about. You are not safe day or night. Don't waste your money or your time visiting this place. Nothing to see here folks... More

Had a great time at Union Station. Had not been there for several years and enjoyed the shops and restaurants inside. The USA Wrestling Event had several vendors along with wrestling exhibitions. Really enjoyed revisiting Union Station. Will definitely return. Drury Inn is also located there.

I have made several visits to Union Station over the years. In 2000 (when I was about ten years old) and remember it being the coolest thing ever! Then I visited at the end of 2013, and it seemed like a dying shopping mall. Now visiting at the end of 2014, it seemed there were a few new shops. The... More

Lots of potential but it's really just visiting a dying mall about two weeks from closure. Lots of closed stores and grungy. We wanted to see the hotel but all the doors were locked we would of had to walk around the block to get in. Plus parming as expensive.

Spent the week end in St. Louis at this historic hotel and train station. The ambience of the station added to a most memorable week end. We plan to revist in the future.

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
