Really nice train station - clean, spacious and good food options

Not a bad place to be stranded waiting on a train. It is really easy to find your platform and everything is pretty close. It has a lot of great food options and very clean. Only... read more

Not a bad place to be stranded waiting on a train. It is really easy to find your platform and everything is pretty close. It has a lot of great food options and very clean. Only problem is its location - it is super hard to get to and from unless you are staying downtown. Also the trains are ALWAYS... More

I love to take the Amtrak train up the coast to Union Station when I go downtown LA for business. Union Station is an interesting place. The bar is fun it your train is delayed all though a little expensive. The staff at the station is always very helpful and polite. I do try to avoid the public restrooms.

Visited the station when taking the Amtrak train between Orange county and Chatsworth. Even if this isn't your stop, get down if you have enough time to see this iconic station.

Union Station in Los Angeles is known as the central hub for all things public transportation in Southern California. It's busy much of the time due to the fact that it is the starting and ending point for thousands of patrons every year. There is such a difference between buildings from this era to that of 30's and 40's. The... More

Union Station in LA, is an old historic building. When there, one should always walk around and view the beautiful architecture of the entire complex. The walk won't take long to do so, but one will find it very interesting.

The station wasn't bad. I was sort of expecting worst. When I walked pass Ben and Jerry's, and smelled those freshly made waffle cone and thought, "hmm not too bad" We made our way to the Amtrak lounge where we helped ourselves to coffee, cookies, soda and chips. The lounge could have used an air filter/purifier because it smelled a... More

Union Station is one of the supreme historic buildings in Los Angeles. The architecture is stunning and don't forget to look up, the ceiling is magnificent. The Architect: John Parkinson used a combination of Mission Revival architecture, Art Deco, Streamline Moderne styles to create this stunning building. It is the largest railroad passenger terminal in the Western United States. Part... More

From the front entrance of this place to the depot stations, I thought I would have to call Uber for a ride.

I had read about Union Station and had to see it. Took the Metro from 7th Street and was amazed at what I saw. The woman playing piano, the seats in the big waiting area, the architecture and the atmosphere were all amazing.
