Epic fail!!! The Fudgery is the only thing worth going for. Other then that it is mostly empty of shops and just a shell. I recommend parking on the street because it is not worth paying if you are not going to stay and eat.

It appears the restaurant/waitress tried to take advantage of us. We were traveling all day and just got settled in and decided to eat in the lobby so our 3 year old (and us) could enjoy the light show. The light show was very cool and we enjoyed it. We ordered our meals, of course overpriced, and the food was... More

I remember this building and shops being the happening place not to far from downtown. My daughter and I were very disappointed. There are very few shops left. The place is a ghost town - almost all the shops have left and nothing has gone back in their place. We didn't stay but for a few minutes to walk up... More

The building is beautiful with amazing light and sound shows in the architecturally incredible lobby every evening on the hour from 7pm-11pm with a number of different shows. The staff was always very helpful and friendly, going out of their way for the guests. The concierge lounge was very nice for Hilton gold and above members, but the breakfast buffet... More

I was suprised when i visited the Union Station. There are so many empty spots. It is a pretty place and historic look but empty of many stores. I hope they can improve on marketing the place. There are some eating establishments and stores but I would not make a special trip to see this place

Awesome looking building and architecture, but only allowed access if you are staying at the hotel. There is shopping in part of it, but for the most part you can't see it.

Pros: 2 decent restaurants outside of the main building. I can't even remember their names because I was so disappointed in the rest of the property. Without going into a ton of detail and ranting about how bad this place has sunk. If you remember the Union Station of old and want to go back to look at it once... More

I had to change my rating recently after going back to Union Station. Loved this place in past visits, but now it is just empty and sad. Very few stores.

this must have been one of those noble experiments in urban renewal. it is a shame it didn't last.not for lack of effort on the developers end. the project looks like it was first rate but the people didn't support it and now shops have closed up. it would have been nice if we could have visited the original terminal...
