We took the train from Ottawa to Toronto. I was impressed by the welcoming to Toronto from a Via staff as we arrived. What I didn’t enjoy was the train station was dirty and the woman washrooms were disgusting dirty and urine smell so strong , it made me nauseated. Very disappointed!

Union station is a huge complex building. It is the main transport centre for trains and buses that take you around Toronto and further afield. It also has various shops like eateries and so on. It is vast so it takes time to get around to where you want to go, but it's not very hard.

Food was fine but the real shocker came with the bill. We ordered a bottle of wine, recommended by the waiter, which was quite mediocre, and made the BIG mistake of not asking the price. When the bill came the wine was $85. Lesson learned - always ask the price, and avoid Wvurst.

Ah Union station is such a beautiful old building. The last 2 times I've been there it has been a nightmare negotiating the stairs, hall etc. There are barely any signs to let you know where to go etc. Sad really

This beautiful train station is a worthy destination and attraction by itself. Downtown Toronto is quite walkabout, outdoors on the sidewalks and indoors through the 30 km underground PATH system. The station is at the heart of it all. On this visit, we noticed that they have really improved the WIFI and food court, and we enjoyed an amazing Jamaican dish of jerk chicken there and got caught up with our emails. We are big-time walkers, and even walked from Toronto Union to Billy Bishop Airport to catch our flight home.

Beautiful station, especially the business lounge. First time taking train in Canada and everything was great. Business class was very good: Very comfortable lounge, walked straight onto train. 4 and half hour journey to Montreal passed easily with frequent drink, meal and snack service.

Union Station is really nice. Clean, free wifi, lots of places to eat and drink in the York Concourse. Has lots of transit options, including long distance trains (via rail), commuter trains(go train), go buses, the ttc, and the UP Express which is great for getting to Pearson Airport. Overall, it's a great station.

A hub of activity. Loaded mainly with rail passengers who work downtown or connect with the subway system to go to another destination. The old rail building is similar to those central stations found in many major cities around the globe.

There's a lot to be said for Toronto's $800 million reconstruction of Union Station as well as for the historic nature of the building. Seems to me that they're doing a great job with a busy transit hub that manages VIA Rail, GO Transit, TTC subway, and UP Express trains.

One thing that was glaringly omitted from the plan was any thought to how passengers are dropped off and picked up when traveling to and from Union Station. At the main entrance, along Front Street, there is a taxi stand running west and space for emergency vehicles running east. When private vehicles stop to pick up or drop off passengers in the taxi stand zone (which happens), the taxi drivers honk and get exasperated. I experienced this first hand. I saw some vehicles stop in the live lanes of Front Street to do their drop off or pick up. The whole scene is ridiculous. I'm not sure how the city neglected to address this at all.

If there is another passenger pick up or drop off location, the Union Station website doesn't mention it. In fact, they don't mention it at all. While many people use ride-sharing, taxis, and transit after leaving the station, there are still many that are being dropped off or picked up by private vehicles. No accommodation for that seems to have been made.

If someone has a solution and knows where to drop off and pick up passengers at Union Station, add a comment and fill us in. If Mayor John Tory is reading this, maybe he can shed some light on this glaring deficiency at Union Station.

I love these grand old train stations. The station has been well maintained and looked after. These are plenty of signs and the staff were super friendly and helpful.
