Santaland for the kids and (if you have the time to wait) the Walnut Room for the ultimate Christmas dining experience!

This gorgeous historic landmark will always be the Marshall Field's flagship store. The walnut room, gorgeous ceilings, unique architecture, clocks outside are all Fields. Take away those things and you've got just another Macy's.

Worth going to see the ceiling, the building and the Christmas window displays. It sells almost everything in the mid range of life. Huge make up area. Tourists get the traditional 10% off which is always nice. Worth a trip if you're in the city.

The window displays are beautifully decorated for Christmas and going into this Macy's just made me feel like a kid. It was grand and beautiful...unlike the mall versions of Macy's! Of course, it's very pricey, but if you look closely, you can find a nice sale or a good bargain. Staff was nice!

Calling all shoeaholics...Macy's on State Street has something for everyone. Ask for Avery when you arrive. He was such an amazing salesman! This Macy's has a greater selection than the Watertower Mall on Michigan Avenue and there is valet parking for less than $30 (up to 4 hours). There are a ton of shops in walking distance and the deals... More

I don't know what it is about this Macy's - perhaps the original escalators? They have a huge selection and a ton of character. the reason they are not 5 stars - the help, this time around (Nov 14) - could be a bit more helpful. I had trouble getting people to help me find the items on display so... More

It's cool to see how department stores used to be, before the malls. It's a huge store...has 2 Starbucks! Many escalators!

Generally Macy's store can be expensive and it is certainly more expensive than just buying online. But it is always nice to check out things and of course some things in store are not available elsewhere. The men's sections seem to be better than women's and the men's suits sometimes carry good deals.

The place is amazing, its not just the size of it, because I have been to NYC. The design of it and the feel of makes you want to buy everything you see. I had to take a break going back to the hotel because all the bags were cutting off the blood in my hands.
