Union Station was designed in a Victorian Romanesque Revival style, with the facade dominated by the pyramidal-roofed tower. The tower is flanked by hipped roofs at mid-height featuring dormer windows. The train shed behind is remarkable for its 200-foot iron truss spans.
The station was built as a joint effort of the Louisville and Nashville and the Nashville, Chattanooga, and St. Louis Railway Companies.
It is faced in Bowling Green graystone in coursed, rock-faced ashlar over brick bearing walls. The rough stone surface reveals much delicate carving on close inspection.
One of Nashville's most visible and best known landmarks, Nashville Union Station and Trainshed was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1969.
It was renovated and reopened as a 125-room hotel on New Year's Eve, 1986.
