The museum is very nice and it is a fun place to just do people watching after you look around the mall and they have good restaurants especially outside

This is one of the grand old dames that needs to be cherished!!! There is a really nice arrangement of historical displays and plaques that tells one a lot about St. Louis...and it is FREE!! So not only can you see a beautiful building but learn about the city at the same time for a very very reasonable price. It... More

Sadly this historic and wonderful building that should be a center piece in St.Louis City suffers from a lack of security and safety and because of this has lost most of it's business. There are still a few places worth visiting like Hard Rock and Landrys. It has been invaded by pan handlers and those who are not there as... More

The amazing revitalization of this structure is something to be truly appreciated. From a train station that has seen so much history to a hotel that is first class all the way! rooms were very good. Swimming pool located under the glass dome as amazing. Attended a conference during our stay there, you could not ask for a better facility... More

Three of us met for a drink and conversation and a "walkabout". We chose a table in the arched ceiling central area so we could enjoy the Light Show. We had a delightful waitress and saw TWO light shows. It was Friday night so many of the shops wer closed, but people watching and window looking was great. The light... More

Took the opportunity to visit while waiting for our son's train to arrive on a Friday night. Parking is available and a shocking $15 on event days (hockey game at the stadium down the block) ... but the prices charged on non-event days ($7) is still exorbitant when there are not many open shops (mostly Cardinal fan memorabilia ... maybe...

I wanted to go inside and see the old train station and the light show. You can not go in unless you are a guest of the hotel. The only thing you can do is walk around to the side and visit the mall. It has a small museum and very few shops and eating venues.

We were sad to visit this spot after twenty years. It has certainly gone down from the vibrant and lovely mall it had been transformed into years ago. Only some tourist shops still hang on and a food court. Don't waste your time with this attraction unless you have a real interest in historic train stations and architecture. The hotel... More

I hate to write a bad review about an historical site but this place is simply not worth wasting your time to visit. Old building. Up keep not up to par. Security not good. I did not feel safe. Simply a big shopping mall and food court. All overpriced, food not good. Everything overpriced. The highlight of the trip was... More
