As a Landmark..

Beautiful Tiffany ceiling and charming old style architecture. Tours on Friday mornings. If you are a Macy's customer it is not an outstanding store but expansive.

We collected our Go Chicago card from the information centre in Macy's which worked out very good value based on the amount of attractions myself and my husband visited. Lellyn who was the member of staff who assisted us with our card went above and beyond! So glad we met her at the start of our trip, a real asset... More

This gem of a building is not being maintained as it should since Macys bought it. Very sad to see this grand shopping hall go down hill. Dirty carpets, worn floors, missing lights, shabby walls, chipped elevator doors just to name a few things. Sad indeed

The State Street Macy's can never be Marshall Fields, but I still love the enormity of the store, the beautiful dining spaces, hidden treasures throughout and magic windows and tree at Christmas. As for shopping, so much to choose from! Love it!

This is not a place for shopping, as is common as the rest of the macy's around the USA. But the building is beautiful.

I've lived in Chicago for 15 years now and watched the Marshall Field's Building become Macy's. Now, on the outside (they still have some of the signage from when it was Field's), it's quite a lovely old, grand building. They've kept the charm alive of the building and for this I say kudos to you Macy's. That being said, the... More

I took a train to meet my parents with my two younger girls to see this beautiful flower show. There were supposed to be 15 gardens. There were 15 "plots" of beautiful flowers, and artwork was amazing . . . however, we were done in about a half hour at kind of a loss of what to do next. Thankfully... More

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

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
