I stayed at the Union Station during a conference the last week in March.
My room was extraordinary - the ceilings were SO high and those drapes!!
I had only 2 problems with the room: 1. The acoustics in the hotel are a little strange - probably because of all the very high ceilings. In the evening I could hear a TV in a room somewhere just booming. i stepped into the hall to try to identify the source amongst my neighbours and all was quiet. It's quite possible that a normal sound level was being amplified unusually because of the scale of the rooms. 2. Trains. It's very cool that the hotel is the old station - but remember the train tracks are active. The walls are thick, the drapes are very heavy - but I was woken by at least 2 trains the first night. It did not bother me - but might be an issue for very light sleepers. Ask for a room away from the tracks. I stayed in 521.
Apart from these two issues - the room was perfect. Bed was unbelievably comfortable, furnishings impeccable, bathroom had everything I needed & more, heating system was quiet.
I had room service the first evening - a beautiful tuna tostada, excellent & very prompt service. I ate lunch in the restaurant the next day - again the service was excellent but my bison sliders were a little greasy.
The conference was well organized. I did find the basement meeting rooms a little oppressive -with low ceilings & no natural light, but the rooms on the main level were perfect for this function. The catering for the conference was very good - we had breakfast, lunch & a great selection of appetizers for an evening reception. There was an excellent variety and I enjoyed everything that was provided.
The hotel itself is beautiful and has stunning public areas, however it also has an unusual layout and it is possible to become confused because of the two sets of elevators on different sides of the building. I had a terrible time trying to find the ice machine & vending machines because there was no signage for them. The only other issue with the building is that the area immediately outside the front entrance is suggested for smoking. Smokers stood awkwardly around the arriving guests and valets and I'm sure the smoke could be unpleasant for those coming & going. A smoking area away from the main entrance would be much better.
Finally - the staff at the hotel were universally polite & friendly. They accommodated all my requests and made the experience in this beautiful venue all the more memorable. I would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to visit again.
