St. Louis Union Station
With so many wonderful things to see and do in St. Louis, the new additions at St. Louis Union Station capture the essence of history, fun and entertainment that the city offers, with the added bonus of being able to stay in the hotel right on site. In the newly renovated Wheel park, guests will get a bird’s-eye view of the historic train shed – once the busiest train station in the world - and the iconic St. Louis skyline when they board the neighboring 200-foot St. Louis Wheel. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the Fire and Light Show on the Lake set to themed music. If you’re wanting to stay a little closer to the ground, check out the 18-hole miniature golf course or carousel. Anchoring the entire Union Station development will be the stunning St. Louis Aquarium, set to open in December of 2019. Located in the former retail space inside the station, the 120,000-square-foot attraction will feature one-of-a-kind exhibits and tanks with 1.3 million gallons of water housing thousands of aquatic species from the rivers and oceans of the world and will be an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Also located inside of the Aquarium, take your day to new heights on the 3-story Ropes course or head into the Mirror Maze for a maze of a good time. You won’t have to leave St. Louis Union Station to get a bite to eat, either. The St. Louis Union Station Soda Fountain is a 1950’s style diner featuring ice cream, candy, burgers and booze. The Train Shed features rotating taps, entrees and appetizers perfect for before, during or after a sporting event. The 1894 Café features quick bites for the guest on the go and finally, The Fudgery provides world-class fudge and a show daily.
