To say that the barrel-vaulted main hall of Union Station has a grand sense of design is an understatement. Above, behind a pair of graceful arches at one end is the hotel front desk. My vigilant editor, Mrs. C, points out that although the property was a Hyatt for many years, it is now a Marriott. Below, the opposite end of the hall. Note the pattern of seven classically garbed women in a semicircle, holding torches high above them, and the pair of friends over the balcony in a similar pose. Maybe it represents St. Louis lighting the way to the future. Whether we succeeded is up to you.
