I based my decision on my extensive experience traveling on Amtrak. In the past, I’ve spent 85 hours on Amtrak trains going up and down the East Coast, reviewing its various accommodations from business class to private rooms in sleeper cars.

My journey began at NYC’s Penn Station. I arrived at 6:45 a.m. for my 7:15 a.m. train. Amtrak suggests arriving a few minutes before your departure, according to their website.

Penn Station’s Moynihan Train Hall has an exclusive lounge for Amtrak riders with complimentary drinks and snacks, but it’s only free for first-class passengers, while business-class passengers may enter for a $50 fee.

I instead went to the main waiting area for all passengers with a train ticket that day.
