With its giant Roman columns, glaring statues, bronze torches and marble floors, the five-story-high Great Hall is simply breathtaking.

This spectacular hall has been used as a setting for movies like The Untouchables, Flags of our Fathers, and My Best Friends Wedding. The famous Union Gallery opens onto the Great Hall, and this 3,500 square foot room is perfect for ceremonies, receptions and business meetings.While it is not the key rail hub it once was, Union Station is still a busy and important station, serving Amtrak and METRA. There are some good eating places here, whether you want fast food or regular dining. There are also preferred vendors in the station if youd like to do some browsing and shopping.
