Lonely Planet review

A standard-issue shopping mall right at the edge of the French Quarter? That’s right, but as it’s just below the towering Wyndham New Orleans Hotel you’d hardly notice it if you weren’t looking for it. This is where you’ll want to go if your shoe suddenly implodes or if your only suit has to be shipped off to the cleaners after a gin-fizz mishap. The upscale mall is anchored by a Saks Fifth Ave store; supporting roles are played by Kenneth Cole, Ann Taylor, Laura Ashley, Brooks Brothers and Banana Republic. A multiplex cinema and the Southern Repertory Theater are on the 3rd floor. The mall parking lot is convenient and has reasonable rates.
