Grand Hall, Union Station
The Grand Hall of the Union Station hotel always impressed me as a child. Coming back as an adult, it still impresses me for different reasons.For a turn of the century, Richardsonian Romanesque building, this hall is one of the most perfectly preserved that I have seen, and not cluttered with later additions or other alterations.The stained glass is stunning as well, complementing the the lavish interior of the vault.
