Even though it has been a while, many Chicagoans are melancholy about the demise of Marshall Field's but thanks to the Landmarks Commission, the building still remains. The interiors, if you like classical, are fabulous. Soaring ceilings, Corinthian columns, and atria throughout are striking. Don't get me wrong...there is a huge selection of items for shoppers, both men and women... More

This store is looking drab and uninviting. Its various floors seem very muddled as to what is available. The staff mostly seemed bored and not interested. Not a pleasant shopping experience at all.

This is a tough review. My problem is that I remember the grandeur of Marshall Fields. This store is more like Target than a fine department store. It even is starting to look not well maintained. If you are from out of town come and visit and try to imagine when this store was in its prime. You can still... More

I love these big Macy's! 8 floors of shopping with multiple food choices and the main Chicago tourism center.

Don't miss out on seeing the magnificent Tiffany dome in Macy's. Great example of his work and we'll preserved.

Macy's customer service is outstanding! We were looking for a bridesmaid dress and Hugo found a dress on the floor that we hadn't even seen! He went over and above with his customer service. We had he best time and ended up (2 days later) getting the first dress we tried on. Kudos to Macy's and Hugo.

So this is the Macy's where the locals shop - so it feels a little different from the store further down in the Magnificent Mile. All the usual stuff - great brands, great range and great prices.

My prejudice aside there is nothing quite like the original Marshal Fields located in downtown Chicago on State Street. This institution will always remain the quintessential shopping experience for both visitors and native born Chicagoans. I suggest finding the time to explore and appreciate all it has to offer - regardless of the current or future name - since besides... 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.
