A high-end shopping mall located in City Center on the Vegas Strip. Beautiful architectural design with a lofty, airy feel. Walking through the mall was confusing. The layout was not very friendly, as if they never want you to leave. Complimentary valet parking was easy to find and service was quick getting car back. Mall is connected to a free tram service, transporting people between Crystals, Aria, Vdara, Bellagio, and Monte Carlo properties.

One of the most unique mall in the strip, it design like something you see in New York or Hong kong. Very modern and sharp looks, however inside is confusing and really this more like a shopping center for the rich and 9 out of the shopper will just window shop here. From restaurant and shop are something you find in Bevery Hill.

The architecture of this half-million square foot retail space stands out, even amid the flamboyance of an over-the-top town like Las Vegas. The jagged roofline - with not a right angle in sight - was imagined by designer David Libes, most well known for his work on Berlin's Jewish Museum.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

For some reason I really hate this place. Maybe it's because I've stayed at Monte Carlo and Cosmopolitan and both mean making frequent trips through this high-end mall to get to the next hotel on the Strip. But more than anything I think the wide open layout makes the place feel really empty. Well, that and the lack of shoppers.

new spiffy, shiny mall. part of city center. They had some upscale shops but the decor is very bland and sterile. Too much white and emptiness. the sculptures i describe as "huh?". I usually like minimalism but without a meaningful design, it just feels lacking,

What can I say about this place? Well..... it must be BORING to work there?
There's a lot of people walking in & out of the mall, but no one is really stopping inside the store! And, if you look at everyone's hands, no one is buying anything at all.
Shopping is in my blood! But, this place bores to me to hell, and the sales person doesn't really wanna make you wanna go in either. Why would I want to come all the way to Vegas to shop and be treated like shit? NO ONE is gonna dress up to come shopping @ Crystals for an hour, especially when you're at Vegas. However, if you don't dress like you got money here, the sale person won't give a damn about you, and wont' even look at you.
Bottom line, don't come here to shop high end crap. If you're in So. Cal. I would stick to your South Coast where the sales person knows that you ain't gotta dress like you got money to spend money!

We stayed at the Aria so we wandered through the Crystals a lot. Quite like it. It was designed by Daniel Libeskind, the same architect who designed the new section of the Royal Ontario Museum on Bloor Street in Toronto, Canada. I much prefer the design of Crystals because it's more inviting.
Also, there are some wonderful retailers within the Crystals, particularly Assouline Books. Worth wandering through for some amazing books.

Crystals is a beautifully designed high end shopping arcade in the "new" city center of Las Vegas. There are numerous stores and restaurants but it is the arts that are dotted throughout the arcade, the architecture and design that really makes this shopping center stand out. (and i am refraining from using the term "mall" to describe it because Crystals is truly an artistic statement that also happens to be a center that contains shops.

This has to be the brightest point of my recent Vegas experience. It was like the "who's who" of high end fashion boutiques all in one place. And, the architecture was breathtaking. A little lax on the food and beverage choices -- especially if all you are looking for is a bottle of water -- but if you are a fasion commando like I am, water is at the bottom of your list of priorities in a place like this.

This is a disgrace. First, an idiot designed the layout. It is near impossible to get around and figure out what level you are on. Second, the place is loaded with first-rate stores such as Louis Vuitton, however the décor of the mall is more suited to housing Auntie Ann’s Pretzels.
