Entertainment DistrictsIconic St. Louis


St. Louis Union Station captures the essence of history, fun and entertainment that St. Louis offers, with the added bonus of being able to stay in the hotel right on site! Ascend 200’ in the St. Louis Wheel where guests enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the historic train shed – once the busiest train station in the world - and the iconic St. Louis skyline in the comfort of climate-controlled gondolas. 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 Union Station entertainment complex is the stunning St. Louis Aquarium, an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). The 120,000-square-foot attraction features 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. 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.

Essentially a big parking for the aquarium without much more. A very few selection of restaurants and a big koi pond. Pretty much it. The carousel and ferris wheel do not make it any more attractive...
