    I love Baltimore's Penn Station! You can access the Thurgood Marshal Airport from Balt's Penn Station on the Light Rail which means you can go anywhere in the world from our Baltimore Penn Station

    I love that this station clearly and properly calls out the platform and platform sections for business class and quiet car.

    Pretty simple, central station in Baltimore. Decent connection to downtown, UB and Johns Hopkins University. LRT, MARC, Amtrak, bus connections can be found here.

    Small, but overall I like it. They have Friendly people, upbeat jazz playing through speakers, automated announcements and free wi-fi! Just don't come too early, there isn't much to do here.

    The Daily News is posted on a corkboard here at Penn Station. Its like time traveling to 1985... MTA is starting the new fad of daily news displaying...we call it the 'F eco-friendly' fad!

    XS is a great Italian and sushi restaurant and full bar within walking distance if you do not like the cafe in the station

    Nice historic building and extremely easy to get in and out of. Excellent option for visiting the Charm City

    Trust me, you do not want to go near the restrooms. If you'll be stopping at Union Station in DC, you'll thank yourself for holding it.

    Spend enough time here, and the voice of the woman who does the morning train announcements will be seared into your memory for eternity.

    The parking lot is always full by morning rush hour, but not to worry, there is a surface lot just behind the station that is actually cheaper!

    if your mom brings you to the station 40 mins early, Club Charles is a cute bar a short walk out the side door!

    Not a lot of dining choices, so don't come an hour early thinking you'll just hang out and have a nice dinner before your trip. (Unless you want Dunkin Donuts for dinner.)

    Java Moon has great breakfast sandwiches, or if you have time go outside to Cafe Sage (on the street behind the station parking lot). I think it's open 9 to 2.

    As others have mentioned, the men's room is disgusting. You should only enter and plan to stay as long as you can hold your breath. On the upside, Dunkin Donuts and free WiFi.

    If you're looking for an ATM please know the machine surcharge is 3.00. It's also hidden behind main customer service area.

    The woman who announces the rush hour weekday schedules sounds exactly like Lynn from Bob's Burgers.

    Old without being charming. Like the free wifi and the folks who work here. Dunkin Donuts is dirty and at the end of the day, the donuts are stale. The newsstand is pleasant, though expensive.

    Temporary Restrooms are outside. Not too bad. Glorified outhouses but not smelly. Just very small and difficult to enter, exit, and maneuver wl luggage. Accessible portopotty without stairs available.

    People, drop off is the right lane. Get into it to drop off. The left lane is how you get to the garage. When you drop off from the left lane, you make the rest of us miss our train! That's rude!

    Free wifi, but no outlets. And don't try to use the bathroom after 9 pm or so; apparently the bathrooms get locked up.

    So easy to get in and out of this station. Ridiculously easy parking. Easiest to use train station in the mid Atlantic. Bathrooms need improvement though.
