“Nice Shooping Area”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Nice shops, several restaurants, theater, American Girl, the hot spot is where Lord and Taylor used to be. Always enjoy going to Water Tower Place when in the city. Sure do miss Marshall Field though, just not the same without it.

“A Shopper's Paradise”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Whether you love to shop or not, this beautiful mall is so worth a visit, if not to shop, to just ogle in amazement. The shops and floors are elegantly laid out. All that lovely granite, marble and what not, plus the glass elevators made me feel like I was in Vegas!!! Down on the lower level, you can find a wide array of simple to gourmet food to eat. You can even sit at the bar and have a glass of wine or a beer while taking a breather from shopping.

“Took grandaughter to Lego Store”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Elaina is a Lego fanatic and she got her birthday gift at the Lego Store. The staff was tremendous. When we checked out the cashier noticed her B'Day button and gave her a small Lego gift. She thanked him and he gave her another saying we would like to hear that more often. She was so excited...said best birthday ever. Visited many other stores while there. Some were very high priced but their favorite stores all had nice sales going on.

“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.
