Pretty, but very little food
Apr 2021
I guess I shouldn't complain because of the covid times, but don't come here hungry. We had planned on lunch before our train left and their food court, except for a couple of fast food places was closed down. There was also no place to sit and eat the food you could by, I saw people eating at un-manned ticket windows etc. There's not much around the immediate area either, we had to walk several blocks to find a restaurant. The train station is pretty, and the outside area nice too.

Clean and efficient
Apr 2021
We entered this train stain from Harrisburg. It was welcoming and had good signage. Restrooms were clean.
We were happy to see an abundance of taxis waiting as this has been a problem in other cities.

Rude staffs
Mar 2021
The three of cop, ticket guy and janitor were rude to us. We only asked a simple question. To which the three rained a volley of rude and loud remarks whilst not answering our question. The place is filthy.

Amtrak Station
Jul 2020
We did a round trip from Newark on Amtrak and passed through this huge impressive old fashioned station. It has seen days with more traffic than now, so it is built for crowds. Now somewhat empty, but with a few places to buy food and drink. Clean.

The ceilings!!!
Jul 2020
The size of the ceilings inside this Greek-Roman behemoth is depth defying. They are massive, could fit giants inside no doubt. Arriving to Philly by bus or by train, this is the most frequent end and start point for passengers and a place I have waltzed through many, many a time. Every time I just look up at the heavens and imagine.

Imposing Train Station
Jan 2020
We passed through here on our Amtrak trip to and from Newark. This is a big classic Pennsylvania RR station, sort of looks like a Greek Temple. Inside very clean and open. Lots of space and it works very well. Probably because there are not a lot of trains. Some places to buy food and drinks.

Been here once in my life and that is because my son works at the building next to it.
Jun 2019
I have driven by this station hundreds of times over my life time. My son works at the Cira Center as a lawyer, right next to the station. We parked and walked to the station and it is grand. Thinking back once upon a time when trains were steam. It was an amazing site of vast space and height.
If nothing else, take a train ride out of here or to here. You are in Philadelphia.

Clean, busy station with just about anything you can think of before meeting with family and friends. There is information, food, flowers, or a card as may be needed. Just enough small shops. Taxis wait on the outside. Great area to leave from or come into when visiting Philadelphia.

Faith travels
Mar 2020 • Family
It was our daughters first trip to New York City on the Amtrak train. We were a little confused on which gate to go to. The red cap person helped us rather than asking a stranger or even check the board. It was worth tipping to get down and wait downbeat the departure area. The information board changed or we changed was interesting to understand. We made it to Penn Station.
