Spa Japonika:

Spa Japonika, an Aveda spa located at the Wynfrey's Riverchase Galleria entrance, provides both complete salon and spa services. Within a cozy treatment room, I indulged in a revitalizing "foot relieving pedicure treatment" and kept the spa's industrial-strength massage chair running the entire time.

Riverchase Gallery:

The Wynfrey Hotel opens directly into the Riverchase Galleria, housing 250 stores, 20 restaurants and 10 theaters. The galleria's nine-story glass atrium is said to be the largest skylight in the world. At the center of Alabama's top shopping Mecca is a carousel and food court. Restaurants at the galleria include Bonefish Grill, Olive Garden, Ruby Tuesday's and Johnny Rockets.
