    Historic and still very busy place. There are new shops there which always nice, and there are connections to everywhere. That's a plus in my opinion. Other than that, a nice place to hang out and eat

    If you riding the Metrolink's you'll have to go to the window to purchase a ticket on the North West side or buy them from the vending machine on the east side of the building close to the bakery

    Entering this “Last of the Great Rail Way Stations” is like walking onto a movie set from the 1940s – an amazing mix of art deco, streamline moderne and Spanish mission styles.

    If you're in a hurry, don't walk behind women in 4" heels. Ladies: stop wearing 4" heels if you can't walk fast, especially at a train station.

    Metropolitan Lounge now open for business/sleeper class. Go past the Amtrak ticket counter, go to 2nd floor. Lounge is on your left. Smokers can smoke in 'privacy' opposite Lounge entrance. Rejoice!

  • Jeffrey-Ryan B.

    Not as nice as the Union Stations on the East Coast and there is no Amtrak Lounge for sleeping car passengers pre-departure. Amtrak to San Diego, New Orleans, Chicago, Chicago via Houston and Seattle!

    It's a beautiful building. Grab a brochure and spend some time walking around.

    The taxi drivers on the cab rank are a bunch of halfwit gunts who have no idea of the way around their city. Especially the rude asses working for that yellow firm. You're better off calling a cab.

    On weekends, use Metrolink and pay $10 for a whole day.

    Why move to the right of the escalator to let someone pass when there's an empty staircase to the left if your in a rush then use it let me stand here and chillax! !!

    The only thing I don't like about LA Union Station is there is no metro lounge for sleeper car passengers.
