    What Ed Schrader loves about Baltimore: "It's beautiful. Sometimes I'll get a cup of coffee and do my work there. ... It has this zen quality to it."

    Please walk quietly, you might wake up the attendants! See photo.

  • Bew Radley

    If you're looking for an ATM please know the machine surcharge is 3.00. It's also hidden behind main customer service area.
  • etta y

    Not a lot of dining choices, so don't come an hour early thinking you'll just hang out and have a nice dinner before your trip. (Unless you want Dunkin Donuts for dinner.)
  • Amy Webb

    RE: the Sun's comment about wanting to hang out and do work here. What?!? This place is loud, the personnel are awful and the coffee is worse. Provincial thinking, Sun.
  • Mandy Sellers

    I love Baltimore, but this place is horrible. Cold bathrooms, dirty.
  • Novoa Champion

    XS is a great Italian and sushi restaurant and full bar within walking distance if you do not like the cafe in the station
  • Ted Van Houten

    Spend enough time here, and the voice of the woman who does the morning train announcements will be seared into your memory for eternity.
  • Nour Tabet

    Dunkin donuts coffee: VERY bad idea. No matter how desperate for coffee you are. Don't!
  • Danielle Ricks

    New spring schedule is in effect. More AM and evening trains to Union Station. Very happy about this!

    There are no maps for the MARC system...
  • Chef Pants

    Finally finished new renovations on the bathrooms! Now we can have a decent potty....
  • Sam Kahl

    Trust me, you do not want to go near the restrooms. If you'll be stopping at Union Station in DC, you'll thank yourself for holding it.
  • Joy Murphy

    If you have extra time, get on an earlier train
  • Loren Baker

    Get your shoes shined! Only $6 and the guy is amazing!

    Visiting this train station with kids? Make the most of your trip with a guide to exploring train stations (on page 6):
  • Hayley Plack

    Don't forgot to look up when you walk in the lobby to see the pretty stained glass ceiling
  • Julie Spokus

    People, drop off is the right lane. Get into it to drop off. The left lane is how you get to the garage. When you drop off from the left lane, you make the rest of us miss our train! That's rude!
  • CITYPEEK Patti

    Take the free Circulator bus back downtown! Ahhh city life!
  • Kevin McClave

    Yep, the men's restroom never fails to disgust. Tip? Don't eat or drink within several hours of your arrival.
  • AK Minnick

    What goes on in Baltimore stays in Baltimore.
  • Jessica Goon

    The train station in Baltimore is a very cheap cab ride ($5) or reasonable 8 block walk to the hotel. The trip takes just under 3 hours from New York!

  • David Bouchard

    The light rail stops here. This particular line goes between Penn Station and Camden Yards.
  • LifeLock

    When using public WiFi, consider logging in using a VPN (virtual private network). If you do not have a VPN, one can be purchased for about $10 a month. Thats practically the price of one coffee.

    Guantanamo can't be worse than the men's room here.
  • Stephanie Sawchenko

    So easy to get in and out of this station. Ridiculously easy parking. Easiest to use train station in the mid Atlantic. Bathrooms need improvement though.
  • Amy Webb

    I truly loathe this station. Staff are unforgivably rude.
  • Jocelyn Pollard

    The java moon cafe has horrible coffee but amazing tea!!
  • Kevin McClave

    As others have mentioned, the men's room is disgusting. You should only enter and plan to stay as long as you can hold your breath. On the upside, Dunkin Donuts and free WiFi.

    Temporary Restrooms are outside. Not too bad. Glorified outhouses but not smelly. Just very small and difficult to enter, exit, and maneuver wl luggage. Accessible portopotty without stairs available.

    Only reason to come to the station is to pass through on your train. I would never get out here. Baltimore is the Detroit of the east coast
  • Mya M

    Small, but overall I like it. They have Friendly people, upbeat jazz playing through speakers, automated announcements and free wi-fi! Just don't come too early, there isn't much to do here.
  • Vince Lamartina

    Try the Naked Juice - No time for lunch, a naked "Power C Machine" juice and a cheese stick will have to do #starving #NeedRealFood

  • Bekah M.

    Free wifi, but no outlets. And don't try to use the bathroom after 9 pm or so; apparently the bathrooms get locked up.

    Smelly benches but it's still a very pretty building. Good security.
  • James MacArthur

    With a sizeable train police contingency always present here, you're sure to be in good hands.
  • Jon Darveau

    Not much going on here, relatively small station with only a couple shops. Pretty basic, gets the job done but dont expect a full service station
