There is a brand of Shopping Malls managed by a company called Simon that have the good taste to put together a number of well known Brands shops, restaurants and services that make it very enticing to visit and spend time in there and sometimes also money.

There is an ice skating ring in the middle of the mall , food court with fast food as well as your more smart... More

Wow! Tons of shopping available and if you stay at either Westin (Oaks or Galleria) they are attached, so it's easy access to the mall. Also great restaurant choices (you can go very casual or very upscale).

A shopping mall of massive proportions, Houston’s Galleria Mall is a nationally- known landmark for store browsing and high- end purchases. Its stores are many and it’s the type of place you can visit several times and still find something new and unique. The Galleria Mall is big, and this is the main reason it enjoys so much recognition. It... More

This mall is so large it overwhelmed my teenage daughter and her friend with shopping options. I was surprised by the look on their faces. They asked if we could return to the mall in Sugar Land to shop. Enjoyed watching people ice skating by the food court. The door court choices also match the choices in shopping, plenty to... More

What a huge mall it is! Galleria is the best mall in Houston. Everything that can be found in malls you can find there. Every store you can think, exists there. We had enjoyed two restaurants: Rain Forest and Cheesecake Factory. Both of them were very nice, but it was my first experience in Rain Forest. Different from everything I... More

This should be considered a reference for shopping malls, due to the extensive areas of multiple interests that will offer you the best, the newest, exclusive or simple unique things you'll love. Get prepaired for having lots of things and experiences to buy!

The Galleria shopping mall down-town Houston is part of the modern history of the city. You "must" have been there if you ever visit the city! It has a wide selection of shops, but mostly within clothing, shoes and accessories, which is typical of most modern malls. Most big brands are present and Galleria is not the place for bargains....
