    Very cool renovated station that looks like a "traditional" older modern station. Beautiful architecture

    Very nice station. Walk up the stairs outside and cross the street for several coffee places.

    Love catching the Sounder from here to get home early

    If you're planning to go to Vancouver expect a lot if delays along the way. But otherwise a good trip.

    Joy Iris-Wilbanks · August 17, 2014

    Trains to Vancouver and Seattle and Portland and everywhere else in between!

    For the best views on the Cascades service to PDX ask to be seated in the right row!

    Worth a visit to the station just to go back in time to the 1920s good restoration

    Start and End of the line for Amtrak's Coast Starlight train from/to Los Angeles and you can catch service to Chicago, Vancouver, BC and Portland

    Jeffrey-Ryan B. · October 21, 2013
  • Jeffrey-Ryan B.

    This is both the end of and the beginning of Amtrak's Coast Starlight. Make sure you arrive at least an hour before the train is scheduled to depart to get seat assignments and settled onboard xx

    Enjoy 21st century human rights, respect, and privacy while traveling on 19th century technology.

    If you are going to travel by train do everyone a favor, take a shower first we don't want to smell you the whole trip

    The remodel is stunning but they didn't fix one of the fundamental problems with all stations- there is no way you're going to hear the overhead announcements. Don't rely on them.

    Steve Pritchard · June 21, 2013
  • DenMom & MoMo W.

    Freely admit: this is NOT as glorious as Grand Central. For being about 100 years younger than that AND in The Wild West... not bad at all!

    DenMom & MoMo W · June 12, 2013

    The updated station is gorgeous!

    Joe Cleary · June 4, 2013

    Nice place to escape the elements. Beautifully remodeled station that houses Sound Transit. Maintained public restrooms.

    Andrew A. · May 21, 2013
  • Peter B.

    Beautiful, recently completed renovation is best experienced going upstairs to balcony.

    Peter Bray · May 7, 2013
  • Catherine T.

    The station underwent a renovation and look up to see what a drop ceiling obscured.

    Catherine Torelli · April 29, 2013
  • Eldon K.

    Even though there is no food or beverage outlets, once they get the remodeling done, this will be a beautiful train station and I am sure will have food and beverage outlets.

    Eldon Kirby · April 14, 2013

    Take the Sounder to Tacoma.

    Mark Jansen · December 15, 2012
  • DJ P.

    Have you ride pick you up in front of tiki bobs to avoid the traffic cluster out front of the station!

    DJ Pheloneous · October 28, 2012
  • Tyler N.

    Don't show up early -- there is nothing to do here, and no one cares if you are early.

    Tyler Neilson · October 16, 2012
  • Jorge O.

    The evening Cascades is not scenic...

    Jorge Orpinel · October 6, 2012
  • Randy W.

    Upgrade to business class for just a few dollars more. Food discount, reserved seat and bigger seats make for an easier ride.

    Randy Woloshin · October 4, 2012
  • Joe G.

    I now realize why people don't take the train.

    Joe Grec · September 30, 2012
  • Brandon J.

    Watch out, the stairs smell like poo-gas.

    Brandon Jeffries · September 4, 2012
  • Jenny P.

    Pay the extra $20 for business tickets. You don't have worry about long or any lines!!!

    Jenny Paguio · July 13, 2012
  • Karl B.

    This is separate from king street amtrak station. No access to amtrak from here.

    Missing your train without your ticket present is an expensive lesson

    The clock tower is modeled after the Campanile di Piazza San Marco in Venice,

    Skip the boarding lines and upgrade to business class.

    Jim Remsik · February 28, 2012

    Business seats are SO worth it. Tuesdays are slow day of week.

    If you're a frequent traveler, buy a NARP membership. For $35/year you save 10% off Amtrak fares. Must book min of 3 days in adv to use the discount.

    Don't count on finding a coffee shop or convinience store here. Vending machines only during the renovation.

    Nathan Makan · September 16, 2011
  • Erik M.

    Find people that look nervous and tell them they've missed their train.

    Erik M · September 2, 2011
  • Anna Sophia O.

    Make sure to give yourself some time to get Business Class seat assignments- you can't use the kiosk!

    Anna Sophia O'Neil · August 30, 2011

    While no food is readily visible, if you cross 4th Avenue to your East and walk over one block there are several cafés.

    Timothy Roller · August 23, 2011
  • Bill B.

    Don't look up. How could such a beautiful building be turned into something so ugly?
