Lockers at Union Station

Are there lockers at Union Station? I do understand there is a bag check service run by Tiburon. But the prices are double the price of transporation--and soooo expensive. We are coming into town early in the a.m. by train--and would like to find a place to stow our bags until we pick them up much later that night (approx 10:30 pm) after finishing our tours and heading to our hotel to finally check in. I have just gotten off the phone w/personnel from TIburon and they do not know of any other alternatives--anyone else out there know--or have any alternative ideas? Thanks--

Because of the problem of possible bombs, lockers are rare. To the best of my knowledge, there are none at Union Station anymore. Most hotels will check your bags and store them until you can check-in. I have done it several times.

I second Darrel6t. When you arrive, go to your hotel and leave your bags with the bellman. Just call your hotel first to make sure this isn't a problem. As long as the hotel does this, all it will cost you is a tip ($1 or 2 per bag) to the bellman.

Alternatively, you might get lucky and the hotel will not be sold out the night before. In that case, I have been allowed into my room before noon on occasion.
