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.

The architecture of the building - both inside and out is beautiful. It is amazing how much detail people put into a train station over a hundred years ago. Unfortunately, it reminds me of Underground Atlanta. There isn't much to see other than the building itself. Most of the stores are closed. It is also a hassle to go from... More

This is one of the grand old dames that needs to be cherished!!! There is a really nice arrangement of historical displays and plaques that tells one a lot about St. Louis...and it is FREE!! So not only can you see a beautiful building but learn about the city at the same time for a very very reasonable price. It... More

Sadly this historic and wonderful building that should be a center piece in St.Louis City suffers from a lack of security and safety and because of this has lost most of it's business. There are still a few places worth visiting like Hard Rock and Landrys. It has been invaded by pan handlers and those who are not there as... More

The amazing revitalization of this structure is something to be truly appreciated. From a train station that has seen so much history to a hotel that is first class all the way! rooms were very good. Swimming pool located under the glass dome as amazing. Attended a conference during our stay there, you could not ask for a better facility... More

The museum is very nice and it is a fun place to just do people watching after you look around the mall and they have good restaurants especially outside
