“Wonderful variety of restaurants and no stranger to this train station”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

I have been to Union Station in Washington DC numerous times and I would utilize Amtrak or Maryland Rail Commuter (MARC) when ever I have a business trip, appointment, or just an overnight leisure not to mention a day trip in Capitol City. There are times I was here solo or with my husband and even my service dog. Has many restaurants lots of choices to eat and love the train station's The Body Shop. Love their Crumb Cakes shop where you can take home a big cupcake and Au Bon Pain where you can get a delicious muffin to go with their coffees.

Currently it is undergoing a renovation and wish for good luck in their improvements during their current projects.

“Pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

This is more than just a train station! The number of retail shops and restaurants was quite surprising. There is a large variety of restaurants to choose from - food court style and also sit down eateries. It is almost a mini mall with a Victoria's Secret, Nine West, Barnes & Noble, and several more. You could easily spend an afternoon here. And the building is rather impressive as well. Worth spending some time!
