I think the thing about it, is that unless you are from another major city, you don't get the level of stores that the Galleria has. So if you are from Chicago or Dallas you don't care, but if you are from a smaller town or city, you get to shop at stores that you only see on TV. Heck, there are stores in there that are in LA, NY, Paris, and Houston.

Also, that area has or is close to most of the finest restaurants in Houston.

But since tourists see that stuff in SoCal and Houston's equivalent is merely a climate-controlled version, a magnificent specimen of architecture...the 5th largest mall, indeed, the Uptown Galleria is a great tourist resource.

It was once the most searched mall on Yahoo some years back and the international shoppers that go there are incredibly abundant.

The Houston naysayers are merely spoiled with it. Myself, I have not been to the Galleria since 1997 but I'd like to go some weekend if I get around to it.
Though the Galleria is a great mall, in southern California there's South Coast Plaza which is bigger and has more upscale stores.

For the average Houstonian, no. For the tourist that's not used to a major mall, yes. Besides, most people go to Galleria for the ice-skating rink in the center of the mall.
