“Give yourself time”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

Under major construction. Signage could be better. People look lost. We almost were. Work ongoing both inside and outside so take care and as I said in the title give yourself plenty time.

“Under Construction and a Little Confusing”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

We like to travel by train when going to Toronto and the Union Station could be good if it ever gets finished. There is a food court with a number of options and you can travel throughout the downtown underground in bad weather, however the outside currently is a complete mess and you will be wandering through muddy plywood sheets to get to buses, taxis or the Fairmont. Inside there is a sickly smell of Cinnabon mixed with who knows what, but hopefully ventilation changes will clear that up eventually. The lounge for business class travellers is well done though.

“Union Station Business Lounge”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

The recently revamped Business Lounge is quite nice and appealing to the frequent traveler who seeks some peace ahead of his trip.
The decor is quite pleasant and it is kept clean and in good shape.
Two minuses thought.
1) There is close to nothing in the lounge. You can enjoy a cup of coffee and this is pretty it. No water, cookies or fruits. Even Porter lounge offers more.
2) The Lounge is quite far front the boarding location.

Also but this could be just me, i found the receptionist a little cold and unfriendly.

“My first visit to a big transit station”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

This is a really cool train station which lads directly into the Air Canada Center. I'd never been to a big city transit station and was impressed by the multitudes of people this one ushered around. It was a very cool thing to see. I recommend it if you're in Toronto, but you'll likely have to go there anyway because there are a lot of train stops and the subway is a good way to get around.

“Beautiful & Easy to Get Around”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

This is a beautiful building! The subway is very easy to use and people were very helpful. You never get a sense that you're lost. It's very clean, safe and a good value for the price.
