“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Grand Central Station is noisy, busy, beautiful and grand. There is usually an exhibit or event in taking place by the entrance. The architecture is amazing. There are many restaurants and shops inside. Worth a Visit!

“Amazing architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

Love the ceiling in the main concourse. Fun selection of foods. Don't forget to look for the whisper spot. Also,look up onto the beautiful night sky in the main concourse.

“The prettiest station in the world.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

As train stations go, this is more a decorative museum than anything. With marble floors, high vaulted ceilings, you forgot you are at an operational train station. The restaurants at the bottom are some of the best but this is a place you quickly get bored of with not much to do except to say "I have done that".

“Roaches”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

I've eaten here before because of close proximity of adjoining hotel, food options are ok, fairly expensive $11 for a indian meal and $325 for a hot dog I could have bought on the street for half the price, but what upset me is after eating I noticed a roach crawling out of my luggage handle gross!

“More than a station!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

You wouldn't think this is a train station - it's a magnificent example of architectural genius. Every time you visit, you notice more stunning detail. If you have never been before, make sure a trip to Grand Central is on your hit list!
