  • Gigantic upscale shopping mall on the Westside of Houston in the Uptown District. This is the ultimate luxury shopping experience, with designer boutiques and high end stores everywhere you go. The mall is solidly upper middle class shopping but still has plenty of middle income chain stores as well so everyone can find something affordable here. Ice skating rink, luxury hotel, seating areas, and more. Food court is typical fast food, but there are plenty of restaurants in the Galleria area. Mall is clean and well-maintained, safe and secure and a wide diversity of people from the blue collar working class all the way up to wealthy upper class types. Parking isn't too bad, and it gets packed here on weekends so plan ahead. Highly recommended.
  • Shoppers paradise. Huge number of high end and mid level stores. The go to mall in Houston. Massive food court and coffee shops. There's also an ice rink. Plenty of covered parking, which is free ❤️
  • I hope the foreign tourists can keep this glitzy mall alive. Used to go here when I was teens and 20s, but I do most of my shopping online now. Wife and I go here after work to walk during pregnancy and when Houston outdoor weather is not good. There's a few interesting places to eat and if you want to splurge high-end fashion it seems to still be the place to go in Houston.
  • I would rate better if they had EV car charging available in the parking garage and lots. Also, parking lot technology is missing. You can now see signs in Lots showing what FL have parking available. Their mall maps need improvement. The bathrooms need remodeling... This mall needs updating
  • Lots of different stores of all price ranges. Places for all ages. Good variety of food. It can draw a large crowd, but it's a big place. Expect to spend many hours seeing everything. Overall, a lot of fun.
