Every holiday season the St. Louis Union Station Hotel offers a magical experience where friends, families, and kids of all ages get to take a ride on the Polar Express.

Hop aboard the holiday train to create an experience your family won’t soon forget with the hotel’s Polar Express train ride package. You’ll receive a golden ticket to board the Polar Express train where your family will enjoy a 45 minute train ride to see Santa at the “North Pole”. On board entertainment includes singing Christmas carols, an audio recording of the Polar Express book, hot chocolate, and cookies. Once you arrive to the North Pole, Santa will board your train, and children will receive a magical bell surprise. Guests are encouraged to wear their favorite holiday pajamas.

Your hotel room package includes deluxe accommodations or choose a decorated suite with special turn-down service for the complete experience.
