  • I lived in The Hilton, in Skokie, Il for 10 days. This mall was across the street from my hotel. Who built this mall, out doors in Skokie? Winters are tough in Skokie. Temperature was -7. I'm used to ...  more »
  • This Westfield Center has a wide range of shops, mostly upscale Nivau and is beautifully landscaped. When the weather's invites you to go shopping, stroll around and relax on. On cold days in the winter of Illinois unfortunately not to recommend, because it's open, it's going better in an indoor mall.

  • The shopping mall was beautifully decorated for the Christmas holidays. I really appreciate that the snow was plowed and the sidewalks were covered with salt so that they were not slippery and easy to walk on. I went to the Lush store and I'm very happy with everything that I purchased and it was easy to park and get in and out of this mall. Even though it was crowded with holiday Shoppers, there were plenty of places to park and all of the shops and restaurants are wonderful.
  • This is a very nice outdoor mall. The shops and restaurants seem to be more for expensive tastes. High end names, like Coach, Macy's, Bloomingdales, etc are what you'll find here. It's a beautiful mall but tends to get extremely busy easily and has a LOT of teens who come from the high school across the parking lot. They offer a small playground and you can pay for your child to ride their train. In colder temperatures they offer a very small ice rink.
  • Workers were rude to a lot of people including teens and young adults (with or without parents). They even tell people not to do something when no one was even close to doing it or even when it is not against any rules. They will even rudely tell people not to do something even when those actions are required by the rules. Perhaps the more it was required or permitted by rules, the more rude they were. I also heard that a group of three people was even called out by the one of the staff for doing something that isn't even possible and they were not even on the mall property. It would not be worth it to admire such rudeness while having to deal with massive and extensive crowds at the same time constantly. It is also not clean either here. I would generally say that this would actually deserve half a star. In a department store like Macy's however, I did somehow manage to have an objective and attentive person help me out after long period of searching. Thus on the department store side of the mall, I could probably give one full star in the department stores themselves. It is unfortunate that the rest of this mall is just that messy. Update 11/24/2017 Doing Black Friday shopping here, the same thing still persisted. Still a half star rating overall here.
  • Some nice stores here, you can get a lot of your holiday or gift shopping done here in one pass. Be sure to dress warmly in the Autumn to spring as it is an outside mall. In the summer it's a beautiful place just for walks there are area for kids to play in. A fish pond to relax near a fountain to sit at and many other small nuggets to be found in this mall.
  • A very nice mall. It's an "outdoor" mall, so be careful in the winter, but they have a great selection of stores, and they've recently done a lot of remodeling/construction, so everything is very nice and new. There are a lot of great restaurants here. Parking can be a nightmare though - just go to one of the garages and be done.
