I have never seen anything like it. We were visiting Houston and ended up looking for Nordstrom. We found it at the Galleria. Parking was simple because there is a free parking garage attached to the mall. I honestly only parked and shopped Nordstrom but from what I saw during my brief visit makes me want to go back.

From the most branded to average to everything. Yes! You can find it here. I love this mall. Huge and a lot of stall, shops, brands to choose from. One day is not enough if you dont have specific things/food to look for. Even the tax refund, yes if your foreigner , you can have your tax refund on $100... More

5 Star all the way!! Every high-end retail store you could ask for...but not just high-end!! Lots of variety for every budget!! Be prepared to walk as it is quiet spread out, but worth every step!! And if you're just visiting the area, the Westin has 2 hotels that are actually part of the mall!! Lots of restaurant options too!!

A massive shopping mall containing high end designer stores as well as the more regular ones and several well known department stores. A whole day is required in order to look around! A huge variety of eating places are also available. Plenty of parking is available underground as well as at street level.

Huge Mall with everything you could possibly imagine including an Ice Rink. Valet parking, for the whole day, will cost you $9.00 plus tip, and will save you a lot of time hunting for a parking place. When we were ready to leave it only took about 4 mins. to retrieve our car.

"The Galleria" is a large typical-US-style mall. If you've been in other large malls before, you won't be surprised. Parking is in serveral garages (with different colour-codes), and it can be hard to find a place for your car. They have valet parking, if you prefer that (but subject to charge). You can find the usual shops of all common... More
