This place is a joke. Just watch the fire and ice show and you will know what I mean. It's like a ghost town in there. The lobby of the hotel is nice (that warranted the 2nd... read more

Had read this was a must see in St. Louis. The outside looks great but very disappointed that it was empty inside. Will try again next time.

So there is an old 'classic' train station in St Louis and someone restored it. The restoration appears to be well done. But with all the hype I sort of expected some attractions or some shops or something? The main floor had maybe a hundred folding chairs all lined up in rows facing a wall. The outside area where the... More

We stayed here on tge 3rd and 4th of may. And the month before that for a night. It is just perfect. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Bar is relaxing and the light show is great. Huaband is a good tipper. So late at night, if you get the right bar tinder, they play as many of the shows... More

I was a model at this year's shutter fest that was held here. I lost my keys one day at the fest and the hotel went above and beyond to help me locate my keys. The bartenders were very attentive and friendly. Andrew in particular was phenomenal. He not only remembered our names but he held a friendly conversation and... More

Union Station is undergoing a multi-phase, multi-million dollar restoration. It is a work in progress. Before you go (and as you should do before visiting any location) check the web site to see what amenities are available, what attractions are complete and what is yet planned. Their site is quite extensive. Currently, you can visit the grand hall, select restaurants... More

This place is a joke. Just watch the fire and ice show and you will know what I mean. It's like a ghost town in there. The lobby of the hotel is nice (that warranted the 2nd star). This place needs a lot of work like nice shops and restaurants.

Our family has been coming to this restaurant for 17 years. We've tried other seafood restaurants but return this one time and again. The service is always good. The staff is friendly and professional. We always order the crawfish bisque because it is better than most others we have had elsewhere. They also make the best garlic bread. The price... More

We had a great experience here... It is like a small step back in time. It was not busy and the service was above average.

The room is massive and beautiful. Be sure to try the Whisper Arch at the main entrance. You can whisper to the wall on one side and the person on the other side can hear you perfectly. There is a and a limited menu. Even if you don't need the restroom, go anyway. The entrance is amazing. Starting at 5... More

So sad to see that this location is defunct. I'm not sure if there are plans to bring it back. Just sad.
