Amtrak back home in
Denver Union Station
After being temporarily relocated during construction at Denver Union Station, Amtrak moved back to Union Station at 1701 Wynkoop St. on February 28, 2014.
Renovation inside the historic Union Station building is finished, so Amtrak passengers can access the waiting room, ticketing and baggage office from Wynkoop through the Great Hall in the historic building. From there, passengers will follow signs to the newly constructed passenger platform, under the large white canopy, where they will load and unload.
Although there will be no passenger parking at the new location, there are numerous long and short- term parking lots and garages around Union Station. For more information on parking downtown, visit http://www.downtowndenver.com
The stop for Amtrak Thruway buses will be temporarily located on Wynkoop Street, across from Denver Union Station and marked with signage.
For more information, Amtrak customers locally can call (303) 825-2583 or the toll-free Amtrak contact centers at (800) USA-RAIL.
For ticketing information call 800-872-7245 (USA-RAIL)
Historic Union Station
to open in July 2014
The Crawford Hotel at Denver
Union Station officially opened on July 14, 2014
Named for Denver urban preservationist and Denver Union Station partner Dana Crawford, the 112-room boutique hotel honors its home inside the historic building – open to the community and travelers alike 365 days a year – while offering contemporary lodging services to its guests.
The stately Great Hall - which features soaring 65-foot ceilings and houses an eclectic mix of 13 Colorado restaurants and retailers - will serve as the hotel's main entrance and lobby. Dining options range from small coffee shops to local favorites: Stoic & Genuine for seafood and raw bar, the Kitchen Next Door for farm-to-table fare, and Snooze, Denver's famous "A.M. Eatery" well known for its pancakes and Benedicts.
Denver Union Station and The Crawford Hotel also feature more than 600 pieces of eclectic Western art, curated by Denver's NINE dot ARTS. Unique pieces include vintage family pictures and travel postcards, inherited objects and a "found objects" collage, a wonderful collection of items found under the station's iconic benches during construction, including 1940s celebrity trading cards, wallet photos and tokens.
Local Colorado companies involved in the Denver Union Station project include Larimer Associates, McWhinney, REGen, LLC, Sage Hospitality and Urban Neighborhoods. The project was overseen by construction company Milender White and the hotel design was created by JG Johnson Architects and Tryba Architects. The Great Hall, Cooper Lounge and Terminal Bar were designed by New York's AvroKO.
