    Go into the historic main hall for photo ops and better views than the underground maze.

    I hate the new Metro Lounge. Red caps can't help people, your luggage isn't watched by Red caps anymore, and for 1st class passengers...getting to your train is a goat rope.

    Day use lockers are excellent value - Jumbo lockers as big enough for two carry on suitcases and go for $18/day.

    This is a huge station. It's pretty simple to navigate though. There's ample signage everywhere. Gotta love that.

    Do not eat at Robinsons Ribs. The guy who was serving food was washing down the wall behind the deep fryer. He did not wash his hands before preparing food. Sooo gross!!!!

    If you're trying to grab a taxi after your train arrives, your best bet is to walk a block away from the station and hail from there. Avoid the taxi stand.

    Don't miss the great hall. If you're coming from the South concourse, go past the baggage claim and make a right. North, past the Metra ticket windows and then left.
