Union Station is undergoing a multi-phase, multi-million dollar restoration. It is a work in progress. Before you go (and as you should do before visiting any location) check the web site to see what amenities are available, what attractions are complete and what is yet planned. Their site is quite extensive. Currently, you can visit the grand hall, select restaurants... More

This place is a joke. Just watch the fire and ice show and you will know what I mean. It's like a ghost town in there. The lobby of the hotel is nice (that warranted the 2nd star). This place needs a lot of work like nice shops and restaurants.

Our family has been coming to this restaurant for 17 years. We've tried other seafood restaurants but return this one time and again. The service is always good. The staff is friendly and professional. We always order the crawfish bisque because it is better than most others we have had elsewhere. They also make the best garlic bread. The price... More

We had a great experience here... It is like a small step back in time. It was not busy and the service was above average.

The room is massive and beautiful. Be sure to try the Whisper Arch at the main entrance. You can whisper to the wall on one side and the person on the other side can hear you perfectly. There is a and a limited menu. Even if you don't need the restroom, go anyway. The entrance is amazing. Starting at 5... More

So sad to see that this location is defunct. I'm not sure if there are plans to bring it back. Just sad.

Another place in St. Louis that is under construction. The mall is gone. I couldn't even get near the place. Walked around a little bit to see if I could get into the old train station that is now the hotel and couldn't find the entrance. Wasn't worth the walk to try and find the entrance. Too bad.

We were a little disappointed by the visit this time. It seems like it's ran down and a lot of businesses inside have closed.

We stayed at the hotel over the Christmas holidays. St.Louis downtown gets rather deserted in the evenings, even more so at this end of Market. With the closure of the mall, there is nothing to do in easy walking distance. Not a lot to do at the hotel either, other than pricey meals and drinks. On the plus side, the... More
