We used the station at the end of our Amtrak Coast Starlight service from Los Angeles. There were plenty of staff on hand when our train pulled into the station. There were plenty of taxis outside to take us to hotel.

In walking distance to south part of downtown Seattle. Aesthetically pleasing old styled bright interior though overall space small for an old train station. Functional. Almost no services beyond bathrooms.

The station is a marvel with its clock tower and Victorian design. The station opens at 6; so there's no point coming earlier than that. The staff is helpful and trains are generally on time.

I'm glad I had to take a train from Seattle to Portland during a business trip, because it gave me the opportunity to experience this beautiful old station! The interior mosaic work is a work of art!

There is a taxi queue just outside the station, and Lyft is a great option as well. You won't have any difficulty getting either.
