Union Station is in transition right now and not worth the effort to visit. Only Subway and Charleys Philly Cheesesteaks are left open in the Food Court and the guy at Charleys said they will be gone in two months (it is now 8-13-16). All the stores and the museum are closed up in preparation for the big renovation. Hard... More

The mall shops are gone, but the light and sound show in the station hall is brilliant. Enjoy drinks while entertained by creative projections on the station ceiling. Fabulous ambiance and decent neighborhood.

We stayed at the hotel there, which was nice. Union Station itself really has nothing left and hasn't for several years. Where there used to be shopping and restaurants there is nothing but abandon shops. Most of it is roped off. There is a Hard Rock and a Landry's outside of the station. There are also some train cars that... More

Wanted to stay at or close to the hotel and were pleasantly surprised with the hotel's restaurant. Very good food, excellent service, reasonably priced.

We drove by Union Station and could not wait to visit,. We anticipated an opportunity to take in a beautiful piece of history and an opportunity to learn. Well we were really disappointment. It is now being used as a hotel and no history. Really sad.

This hotel is a slice of history, and you feel like you've been transported to another time. The main lobby is beautiful and ornate and the nightly light show really is spectacular. The hotel has older areas and there is some surrounding reno's; but overall the staff is friendly and informative and I think this place is uniquely different and... More

I was hoping we'd enter the Union Station, a historic old train station, to find a store, a restaurant, something - at the very least, I was hoping we could cut through to get back to our hotel on the other side of the street! There is nothing there. It is empty, and it's sad, because it's a great old... More

The station has two hotels, however, the public area is deserted, with a 'food court' consisting of two outlets. I don't know how they survive. The city should look at developing the site into something special. If it is, there's nothing I could see to say that

My husband conference offered a general tour which we just drove by union station which lead me to revisit this place. If you take metro to Union station, you will be shock of how run down of union station and nothing to see. But if you walk to the front.... what a gorgeous sight. The station has been converted to...

Heard great reviews from others who had been here but that apparently was awhile ago. We walked from the arch to find nothing and I mean nothing! Subway was all there was in food court rest is a ghost town! What a shame this is such a cool building! Walked 3 miles for nothing!
