At its opening in 1894, it was the world's largest and busiest railroad station and its trainshed was the largest roof span in the world. In 1903, the station was expanded to accommodate visitors to the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. In the 1940s, it handled 100,000 passengers a day. The famous photograph of Harry S. Truman holding aloft the... More

We have been to this place on a few occasions in the past when my brother lived in St. Louis. It used to be lively with shops and restaurants. Now, there is no place to eat other than the Hard Rock and Landry's. The only stores really worth going to is the Cardinals store and Lids to either by a... More

A historic building brought back to life that offers a hotel, shopping, movies, and a look back in history. The original building had dozens of railroad tracks. The huge open floor that once handled hundreds of travelers, has been replaced with up-to-date facilities including dozens of eateries, upscale retail stores and great homemade fudge. Something for everyone. Make sure you... More

St Louis Union Station was an old train station that was turned into a shopping and eating center. There are restaurants as well as a food court, however most of the food courts have closed down. The shopping is nice for looking but very few things really outstanding for purchasing. There is a Double Tree Hotel at one end of... More

I was there during the World Robotics Championships, which took over a large lobby section for several days with thousands of people. You would expect if anything was going to be open, this would be the time. Alas, there were very few stores and nothing of interest in the mall. The food courts, what was left of them, were only...

We were at the Union Station Hotel, because we were attending a convention there in their newly redesigned meeting and ballrooms. The hotel was easier to navigate and find your desired locations than the convention center portions. Being a re-desined older building, elevators and staircases did not always go exactly where you wanted to go. Directional signage was sometimes lacking,... More

I am saddened by how bad this place has gotten. There are hardly any shops inside. If you want to see anything of how it looked, it appears you have to be a hotel guest. We didn't even feel comfortable walking around outside between Landry's and Hard Rock Cafe. There was a guy sitting on a bench smoking a joint... More

It's really too bad, the old station is beautiful and the attempted reimagination of the old rail yard was creative, but the only reasons to visit are for the hotel lobby (former grand hall) and the Hard Rock Cafe, but a big problem is that the retail area between the two is dead or tacky and the hotel in it's...

Love this place, we like to shop here when we visit St Louis. Huge original train station with wonderful design. Lots of food places too. Some thing for the whole family. Even a hotel if you want too.

The lobby of the hotel was breath-taking. The laser show was one of the highlights of our stay. Staff was friendly and accommodating, especially in the market where I came in right after closing. I came for a quick evening treat for my girls. The worker unlocked the door and let me make my selection and made me feel extremely... More
