We really enjoyed catching our various metro connections through the terminal and the interior was a throwback to the glory days of rail travel

I'm a local in LA and this place is not the best. Workers don't know train schedules and are not helpful. You have to ask around to get correct information. Also at night it gets filled with shady characters and security is rather low. You...More

A great public building from the time when train travel was king. A beautiful building which maintains much of its bygone glory. Functions well as a modern transport center. For those traveling Amtrak in Business Class or a Sleeper, the Metropolitan Club is a comfortable...More

The transoprtation is ok here. However, the place is very dirty and dated. Needs to clean it. Lot of homeless people roaming around and makes the trains and places dirty.

Built in the 30's in the Art Deco style, there is much to see. The historical downtown LA area can be reached conveniently from any where in the large metro area through Union Station. It appears to be clean and well maintained.

As a local resident since 1979 it was my first time stepping foot in this place. I was surprised how nice it was. Clean, no homeless, graffiti, and most of all less crowd even during rush hour. If you know where you want to go...More

This place is amazing! The rich history, art work, the people and train make for a very exciting day. Olvera Street is across the street and the Downtown Library is close by. Simply stop in and take a peak, you won't be disappointed.

Built in the 1930s, the Union Station is a blend of different architectural styles and is a pleasure to behold. Not to mention you can access almost all of Southern California very conveniently via the metro link and Amtrak here.
