A prime capital address
Rolling into town is a cinch, thanks to The George’s location one block from Union Station, a major East Coast transportation hub and leisure destination in downtown DC. Opened in 1907 and designed by architect Daniel Burnham, the bustling, grand station serves as Amtrak's downtown headquarters (with an annual ridership of more than 5 million), and the Metro’s red line come through here, too. Recently, Union Station began servicing buses operated by Greyhound, BoltBus, Megabus, and Washington Deluxe, making travel easy and affordable to and from cities like Philadelphia and New York. Another draw? Sightseeing tours that depart from here include the Gray Line and Old Town Trolley. Union Station also features 130 stores plus popular eateries like Thunder Grill and Center Cafe Restaurant in the majestic atrium area.
