A train station

It is a train station. What do you expect? Though this one is quitte nice, with the lightning and the engravings on the walls.

No stores, restaurants horrible, that's just the truth. The best thing there was the fudgery. So different than when I lived there 10-15 years ago. A sad ghost town.

Lots of stores and places to eat. Two stories with elevator. Retains some of the original architecture both inside and out of the beautiful old station.

Looks like a Hilton brand hotel with lots of nice shops and restaurants. Large area for conventions and a large hotel lobby. A very nice use of the old train station.

When I was a child my parents would bring me here, and it seemed incredibly magical. After not being here for 15 years and coming back I was shocked at how many shops had left and how run down this once great place has become.

It is a wonderful historical place, but seems a bit empty inside from what it used to be. I still like a few shops in there, especially if your looking for some St. Louis Cardinals items. We always get some good photo shots outside when we stop in.

When you're in St Louis this is a must go place. It's a shopping mall but there's loads of stuff to do in there. Lots to eat, plenty of quality shops to shop in and various activities on at certain times so watch the schedule. It's fun just to walk around and watch. Ample parking and easily accessible. It's a... More

We ended up going to Union Station because it's something I remembered from childhood wanting to ride in the boat on the water around the restaurants. We were able to do that and be the only one on the water. There was a circus thing set up out front that you could swing on as in the circus and due... More

A great sight to see but it is not what it used to be from what I was told it was packed with shops at some point. Now it is just a great historical place to visit it is very pretty but don't go there to shop just to see it is great!!

We did enjoy getting to go inside the original Union Station. It was disappointing that is now a dying mall-type area. There weren't very many shops or food places.
