One weekday evening, while shopping, we parked for free at a Galleria garage, took a short walk, and admired the beautiful, landmark, 64-story, 901-foot (274.6 m) tall Williams Tower. It loomed near the massive Houston Galleria just off I-610 in Houston’s Uptown area. It looked as if it were two towers with one stacked on top of the other. The... More

We were shopping in the area and took a wander over to this building. Well worth the trip if you are nearby. Great architecture which provided some super photo opportunities. Nice green area outside too..

Visited the Williams Towers today as they are right next to the Water Walls. Worth a visit to both if in the area. The Williams Towers are massive, clean and very tall. If you are struggling to find where they are on foot just look up and you'll find them.

Williams Tower was one of the places we had read about and wanted to see while in Houston. We were there after hours so we didn't get to see the building on the inside. The architecture is amazing and we got some great pictures.

I had a class at Williams Tower for 2 days. I had never been to Houston before, so it was incredible to see the sight. The lobby area was very clean and the building itself was a site to see. It is just a short walk through the mall from the Westin Oaks. There is also a great little coffee... More

the waterwall is refreshing great background for photos and the park is good for an evening walk, it can also be a great place for kids also. Parking is a challenge here. You can park at the Galleria IV's Nordstrom. Area: Galleria / Transco

The observation deck on 51st floor is still open.... you just have to get by security to see it. It is not as good as it used to be as Williams have blocked some of the views with advertisements for renting in the building. There appears to be interesting information about the building locked in the "office" that blocks the... More

Some of the reviews said that they went to the Observation Deck. I just called and they said you haven't been able to go to the observation deck since 9/11. Any feedback appreciated...would love to be able to go to the top

It is a fabulous place to visit. There's an observation deck on one of the top level floors that provides a look that goes as far as the eye can see. Next to the Water Wall - it's not only a great place to work but a wonderful place to escape.

The best is the Fountain in front of the Williams Tower....a beautiful waterfall....! In the Tower's lobby you can see their art exhibit. I have seen several exhibits, the last one of excelent photographs by Russian artists.
