Time Unit v Duration

Je prends le train le matin v. Cette soirée s'est très bien passée

These both talk about a specific time periods. "the morning" and "that evening".  How do I distinguish them?  I am struggling with this distinction.

You're taking the train at a particular point in time, in the morning: hence matin. But the second sentence is about that the evening went well, so it refers to a time span: hence soirée.
