Los Angeles Union Station

Washington, DC Union Station

There are lots of options for hotels near this station. The two closest hotels are the Hilton Washington DC Capitol Hill and the Phoenix Park Hotel. Our preference is the Phoenix Park Hotel as it’s a very short walk from the station. It is also nice to walk back to the station for lots of food options if you don’t plan to eat in a restaurant.

New York City – Moyhihan Train Hall

There are so many options for hotels near Moynihan Train Hall. The closest option is the Fairfield Inn & Suites Penn Station. We stay at this hotel because it is so close to the station. You walk out the side entrance and cross the street to the hotel. You don’t have to worry about crossing from Penn Station. We couldn’t leave off this train station from our complete guide to hotels near major Amtrak stations.

Los Angeles Union Station

If you need to stay near Los Angeles Union Station, the closest hotel is the Metro Plaza Hotel, which is acceptable. For a little better place to stay you could choose the Millennium Biltmore. We stayed there on our last Amtrak trip and recommend it, but this would require a short taxi or Uber to the station. There is a car rental location on site at the station.

Chicago Union Station

There are lots of places to stay near Chicago Union Station. We have tried many of them like La Quinta Chicago Downtown and Club Quarters Chicago, Central Loop. If you’d like to stay close to Union Station before or after your visit we recommend the Hyatt Place Chicago Downtown – The Loop, which is about a 5 minute walk from the station. There are lots of places to eat near this hotel as well as being able to walk back to the station food court.

Emeryville – San Francisco

Emeryville has several hotels within walking distance of the train station. We stayed at the Four Points by Sheraton San Francisco Bay Bridge, and can recommend it. We walked there with our luggage after getting off the California Zephyr. A few others nearby are:

Seattle – King Street Station

The King Street Station may have the most convenient hotel near it in the entire Amtrak system. If you are staying a night or two in Seattle we recommend the Embassy Suites Seattle Downtown Pioneer Square. The hotel is just steps from the Amtrak station and we could see the entrance to the station from our room. On top of that we found the hotel to be amazing and the staff was very friendly to us.

Boston South Station

South Station in Boston is near many hotels. It’s near the financial district. You will also find lots of places to eat. The Intercontinental Boston is a good choice that is close to the station. We have also stayed at the Club Quarters Hotel Faneuil Hall.

New Orleans

There are lots of options of places to stay near the New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal. We stayed at the The Troubadour, and really enjoyed it. While it is not close enough to walk to the station, we ended up walking to the station with our luggage from there anyway, due to a lack of available cabs. Plan to book your ride to the station the night before with a reputable car service that your hotel can provide.
