Union Station reviews
Employees extremely helpful extremely friendly everything was clean and well taken care of. Looking forward to visiting again more »
Unless you are a regular commuter, you probably haven't had reason to take a train lately. So you probably haven't visited Chicago's Union Station. But you probably recall one of the grand staircases.... more »
Very groomed, and busy train station as they go. Clean bathrooms, food and a great location to mill about town on the layover. Beautiful old station.
Magnificent building. Belongs to days gone by and yet is still as functional today as back when... --- love the history. Love the grandness. Love that the building is still here and has stood the test of time. Yet it's easy to notice, they don't build them like they used to.
