“Great location - should be nice once renovation complete”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Under renovation. Conveniently located downtown Seattle near Ball parks. Great place to catch a train to go to Portland, OR or Bellingham, WA. Not much parking.

“Open only during the week???”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Went here once during the week and was able to see it ( chihuly glass art and architecture ) but it's been closed virtually ever other time I've been. Must be closed on the weekends (other than special events). Since its a working courthouse, it's doesnt make for a very good sightseeing attraction. Don't expect to be able to get in on a whim.

“Beautiful architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Now a courthouse, photos are allowed inside the gorgeous rotunda flanked by marble slabs and decorated with lovely, old style accents in a New York's Union Station manner.

“Union Station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I went to see this place while on vacation to see friends, and I have to say Union Station is such a beautiful building, a must see... Small fee to pay but it is totally worth it!

“Great for events”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Union Station is a gorgeous space; it handles large groups and the facility coordinators are comfortable with caterers. I've attended agency staff dinners for several years, and the occasional community presentation.
