The Galleria provides Houston shopping and relaxation
The Galleria is neatly situated between two very upscale neighborhoods in western Houston. Visitors to this behemoth 2.4-million-square-foot shopping center can shop, dine, play and stay, all in one extremely convenient location. Inspired by the Italian Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, The Galleria in Houston draws in over 26 million visitors each year. Notably the largest Texan shopping development and the fourth largest in America, the Galleria promises an extraordinary shopping experience and delivers a memorable stay.

Things to do and see
The Galleria is more than just a mall. Imagine creating the trendiest and most distinctive collection of shops, restaurants and entertainment space available, and you'd be close. Consider this area a Texas-sized shopping and dining extravaganza.
The Galleria is a dream for fashionistas. Anchor stores include Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Macy's. Moving on to fashion, you can start with high-fashion names like Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Prada and more. Of course, youthful fashion is all the rage at Juicy Couture, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Forever 21. Looking for great deals on home and tech trends? Visiting stores like Brookstone, Microsoft and Sony should quench your thirst for the latest, cutting-edge gadgets.
With over 30 dining choices at the Galleria, visitors can opt for virtually any culinary style. Family-friendly eateries abound, but if you feel like something fancier, try a mouth-watering steak or some fresh seafood.
Families with an active bunch can let off some steam visiting the Ice at the Galleria indoor skating rink. Sign up for private lessons if it's your first time, or check out the public skating sessions if the activity is second nature to you.
The Galleria is much more than a shopping center with a few good dining choices. If the excitement of premier shopping wears off, visitors can jump in one of the two swimming pool areas, let the kids run around the children's play area, drop some change at the state-of-the-art video arcade, or get a new “do” at one of the Galleria's 12 beauty salons.
Where to stay
The Westin Galleria is the perfect place for guests to unwind after a day at The Galleria. Directly connected to the shopping center, you can finish your busy day resting comfortably on Westin's signature Heavenly Bed. Have a workout in the fitness area, or splash in the outdoor pool before relaxing with your favorite beverage at the hotel's bar and grill.
The Westin Oaks is also one of the Galleria hotels, and acts as a sister facility to the Westin Galleria. With similar amenities that are uniquely designed to appeal to business travelers, this elegant hotel offers classic decor and beautiful architecture.
Embassy Suites Houston
For an idyllic accommodation experience, the Embassy Suites Houston invites its guests to relax by the indoor pond inhabited by two gorgeous swans. Within easy walking distance to The Galleria, this all-suite hotel makes relaxing an art.
George H. Bush International Airport (IAH) is the most popular airport in the general Houston area. The Galleria is an easy 30-minute drive from this airport on major freeways. The William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) is another option to the southeast, with a closer drive at 25 minutes away.
If you're driving to the Houston area, most major Texas cities are all located within a few hours. Take a day trip from Dallas, four hours away, to enjoy some of the best shopping in the Lone Star State. If you're driving from San Antonio and Austin, you'll have a three-hour trip to Houston and the famous Galleria.
