Wonderful old train station in Seattle. Short walk to Mariners and Seahawks games. Across the street from the new Embassy Suites. One or two hiccups regarding train announcements in the past but nothing that ruined the day.

Living outside of Seattle to the North it's a great idea to ride down on the train. We rode back North the next day on the Bus. If you don't like I-5 traffic this is the best way to get to Seattle. Station is only...More

We caught a train from Seattle to Vancouver from King Street Station. It’s an old historic building that has been maintained very well. Staff were helpful and the place was kept clean.

A wonderful trip back in time to the turn of the 20th century. The cool thing is, you can still grab a train to anywhere in the country from here!

This beautiful train station, well over a century old now, is a showpiece of restoration. Completed in 1906, it was fully restored to its current glory in 2013. The main waiting lobby is huge, with massive ceilings. There is plenty seating to be had, which...More

The King Street station is right next to Union Station which I found a bit amusing. Currently it is the Amtrak station for the town and is very distinct with its tower. Sits north of Pioneer Square right as you cross into Chinatown.

We were not there long but took several pictures as we walked through with friends who were picking us up on a rainy day. Beautify keep up building. Classic Architecture.

The King Street rail station has been around almost as long as railroad tracks came to Seattle. It's been fully renovated and, even if you're not planning on traveling by AMTRAK it's well worth the visit to see the inside of this magnificent building. Best...More

We rode business class. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The only downfall was the 2 hour delay mid trip due to other trains needing to pass by.

Yes, just as Ian said. As you exit the King Street Station turn left (South) towards the Stadium. About a block and you'll see steps that will go up. Follow the covered walkway and over the train tracks, cross the street and... More
