Crown Center is a great venue if you are looking for a family outing. There are plenty of eating establishments and an assortment of shops. The mainstay of the center is the Halls department store. As others have mentioned, shopping in the stores can be expensive but you don't have to buy, just enjoy the day. Right now, they have... More

Great shopping, sure alittle overpriced but fun different stores to chose from. Several places to eat. Great for kids. Busy but worth the crowd. I recommend the Bronx for great new York style pizza. If you like sweets, there is a tasty chocolate shop, and a bakery on the first floor with huge Cinnamon rolls. There is also a candy... More

I can make this fast, CC is not for adults, everything is for children. I did not stay at the Westin, but walked over from Union Station. I was expected more adult activities, but everything from the stores to the all kids running around, we quickly made a U-turn back to Union station.

Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts, travelnow39. While it's true that we have a number of family activities and attractions here, we also have an ice rink, aquarium, live theatre, movie theatre, shops and restaurants that many adults do enjoy. (As well as a number of outdoor events during the summer.) While we're sorry to hear that Crown Center... More

Crown Center is attached to the Westin Crown Center which is great for hotel guests. The mall currently houses a fair mix of restaurant options and retail therapy options. They are currently expanding and will soon have more of their space filled. My traveling companion visited the Aveda Spa and Salon and was able to get a walk in appointment... More

The Crown Center is really just another shopping center, and a pretty upmarket and expensive one at that. The Ice Terrace is the only reason to make a visit here. It is the cheapest ice skating admission and skate rental ($9 total for adults) I have ever come across in Australia and the USA and if you visit on a... More

Lots of photo opportunities in here. Lots of things for kids to do and see here. We especially loved the trains at Fritz's (though the food was horrible) and we loved the food at the Crayola Café. It is beautiful at night. The trees are all lit up and people are ice skating outside. Weekend parking is free. You can... More

But you don't have to make a purchase to get that first 3 hours. Just have your ticket validated at any shop, restaurant or our... More

Tonja W, Thanks very much for taking the time to share your thoughts about your Crown Center visit. As you may know, our shopping center is going through some big (but exciting) changes in 2014. In September, a 60,000-square-foot Halls store will open on the 3rd floor. As awesome as that is, there are some unavoidable inconveniences in the meantime.... More
