“Finally - a Facelift!”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

The Station is currently under renovation for a much needed facelift, so the experience is not the best. Once completed, the Station should rock!

“Great location - should be nice once renovation complete”
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???”
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”
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”
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!
