I wish this was still the Marshall Fields but at least the kept the plaque outside. This is definitely a must see and the restaurants here are great as well. This place is especially great to visit between November and December, the decorations are impeccable.

Would say its better stocked than other stores i have been to but it was slightly chaotic and gifficult to get around. Go there only if you have a lot of time to look for what you are after.

For those of you not familiar with the original store in this location it's probably better that way. Marshall Fields was a Chicago delight, an icon of beauty and architechture, and while it was waning in its last days I think you get my drift. Several times a year we venture down to Macy's on State Street and it needs... More

My wife and I came to Chicago for our anniversary. One place we try to go to every time is Macy's on State. The atmosphere is really cool. The decorations are festive. The Walnut Room with the giant tree is a must see.

Did you know that during the holidays there is a giant 45 foot tree in the store? Take the elevator way way way up to the furniture dept on 8th floor to see it. Then be sure to visit holiday lane. (Hard to find tucked away in the back of housewares 5th floor) ask an employee for directions. Its fun... More

The afternoon that we were on State Street, we were going to a show at the Cadillac Palace Theatre, but we thought that we would take in the Christmas displays in the State Street windows. Over the years, we had gone there many times to see the various displays. And though they have gotten smaller and certainly, not as many... More

Macy's took over Marshall Fields. Glad they continued the end of year holiday story-telling displays. Also, kudos to a gorgeous tree on the inside with the Walnut room. When visiting in month of December, highly recommend stopping by with your young kids to at leadt view the window displays.

I haven't been back to Chicago to see the Christmas window displays at Marshall Fields (now Macy's but it will always be Marshall Fields to me)until recently. They were absolutely lovely and brought back memories from when I was younger. The tree in the Walnut Room is breathtaking as well. Recommend walking by or stopping I the store to look... More

The Christmas tree is in the middle of their restaurant. Go to furniture dept. to get the best view. It's beautiful, and a must every year.

The old Marshal Field's store (now Macy's) is the place to go to know you are in the Christmas season. The shop windows (smaller now - but still nice) and the large Christmas tree in the Walnut Room (lights projected that continually changed) are always fun to see.
