“Another Shopping place in Chicago”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

i am not a shoppaholic. But there is one thing you check out the mini watertown located inside of the Tower. Take a nice break sit next to the watertown to watch the water drop from each level, that was fun.

“Strolling Down the Avenue”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Though we were unable to do a lot of shopping due to low funds! We enjoyed strolling down the avenue and window shopping.
Don't miss the Watertown! We passed it and did not know what it was on our stroll. Later, a cab driver informed us that it was the only building to surivive the Chicago fire.
It was beautiful from the street/cab window, light up at night.

“Lavish shopping mall.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

It has all the standard brands, so you can walk around feeling like there is something you can still buy (in contrast to some malls where there are only those super-expensive brands). Just a nice place to kill your time when you don't know what to do around the area in Chicago.

“Nice indoor shopping”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Huge mall type shopping center. Elevators were a little slow because there are only a couple of them. Definitely a nice place to shop when the weather is bad.

“Interesting mall”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

This is a pretty interesting mall with a HUGE Macys. The mall was a bit tough to get around as it felt kind of choppy, with not many stores on each floor, but there were abotu 8 floors worth of stores. Good selection, and actually stores you could shop at compared to those on the Magnificent Mile. I really suggest the food court. Great selection and good quality.
