“Under construction but still fun to visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

There is a great deal of construction going on there. You can still catch a train near there. When this is done, it looks like it will be magnificent! It was always easy to get to the bus stop or to the train tracks and it seems like it will be just as easy!

“Beaux Arts Style Train Station”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is a great architectural building with a style that is not repeated in any of the modern transportation hubs that this station is undergoing. I cannot wait to see how they transform this train station into a modern multi-transportation hub (train, bus, taxi, metro rail) while preserving the classic styling of this old train station.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The building is awesome, the staff was efficient, and the train was on time. The gift shop was well-stocked and the bathrooms were clean.

“Union Station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Denver's first train station was constructed in 1868 to serve the new Denver Pacific Railway, which connected Denver to the main transcontinental line at Cheyenne, Wyoming. Now it's under construction and when complete, will house the various means of transportation. It will be as grand as some of the European stations!
