We caught our train to Seattle here and it was nice. We booked first class tickets so we had a separate waiting room with hot drinks and waters and snacks available. That was a nice perk. The station is kind of cool!

We stopped driving to Portland years ago. Union Station located within walking distance of lots of hotels, restaurants, pubs, and coffee shops. Never had any problems with station staff or with mixed up schedules or announcements.

I took my Coaster liner from Portland to L.A from here. The building is nice and the service is good. There are a bathroom zone, a bar-easy groceries shop and a waiting zone for passengers. All very clean.

A historic building currently being used as intended - a working rail station. The outside is well kept with awnings over the windows and lovely landscaping. Inside features original wood benches, signs, desks etc... Small but worth a stop if you enjoy historic train stations.

Living down south in the Willamette Valley, I needed to be up in Portland for the weekend. Had hoped to take the train from Albany up north, but was disappointed to learn that some years ago the mid-morning Amtrak train had been eliminated. Thankfully, there...More

Step into the past in this classic train station. There is also the opportunity to visit the second floor to view photos taken over the years of the station and old Portland.

Sorry. Can't give any information on this matter. I took the MAX train from Moda Centre to the city centre. Didn't drive.
