Macy's, Chicago
(3.8/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
A flagship of one of the United States's most famous stores, Macy's draws a large number of visitors and sits on the National Register of Historic Places. Spread out over nine floors in the Marshall Field and Co. building in downtown Chicago, the store features several rooms notable for their luxury, such as one with an ornate vaulted ceiling designed by Tiffany. Be sure to stop by the Walnut Room, the first department store restaurant in the nation, and view its wooden paneling. Keep an eye out for the giant clocks around the building, often used as meeting places. Our Chicago vacation builder makes visiting Macy's and other Chicago attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • You can find everything, on 8 floors, a true paradise... Brands such as Michael Kors, Eileen Fisher (of great chic clothing in beautiful materials), the Italian brands, beautiful affordable collections for real women and not only in size model 36 as in France and Italy... A complete cosmetic RADIUS with French, American and Italian brands. With the Go Chicago Card, we had 15% on all items in the store, which corresponds roughly to the tax.

  • State street offers numerous shopping options and Macy's is one of the main ones. This is a very large location with several floors and extensive variety.

  • I don't really like shopping at Macy's that much, but the State St. store is really gorgeous. There are something like 9 floors of shopping with Starbucks on most floors and a food court. The fountains are gorgeous as well as the architecture, which they've maintained very well. Definitely visit in December/closer to Christmas because the interior transforms into the epitome of holiday spirit. They usually have wonderful window displays during Christmas time (though, of course, still not as grand at the ones in Herald Square, NY).
  • This is what a department store should look like. A beautiful building, enormous selection, good prices. Don't miss the beautiful glass dome above the perfume and makeup area.
  • My wife bought some walking shoes here on our vacation. It needs updating in some areas ("en's Restroom"), but overall, it's a stunning building and a very good place to shop if you're in the downtown Chicago area. Good prices too. I was expecting much worse....
  • Great shopping experience. We walked in just to looks around and we got out with $100 worth of stuff and not just one item. Even if the store is on the higher-end in prices they have a lot of sales and can find great pieces at a very affordable price. Very friendly and helpful associates. Loved it!
  • The Tiffany dome ceiling is still there. And the Walnut Room still serves breakfast under the tree. But, we all know this place is a shell of it's former self when it was operating at Marshall Field's. Sure, they can bribe us with Frango Mints. But we know the difference. Each holiday season, my family holds our noses and goes to enjoy a meal in the Walnut Room. It isn't perfect, but they've kept some of the traditions alive. But why isn't there more Uncle Mistletoe? And...quit recycling the 'window' scenes from your New York location. We might be the Second City, but we know when we're getting someone else's leftovers.
