Very Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The Dryades house exceeded our expectations. Located an easy 3 block walk from historic St.Charles streetcar line made travelling around the city very convenient. Several nice restaurants within 3 blocks.

The neighborhood has a friendly residential feeling. Dryades Suite has everything for a comfortable stay. Two beds, both very comfortable, very nice quality linens and towels, bathroom very nice with plenty of hot water, heating/cooling fantastic, mini kitchen with everything you need.

A very charming front porch and many extra touches in interior decorations give Dryades House an authentic New Orleans feel.

Everything was exceptionally clean and tidy!!

I highly recommend the Dryades Suite for a NOLA vacation.

Cute & Convenient

My Husband, Pups & I evacuated Florida b/c of Hurricane Irma. The Owner & Property Manager were lovely. We will absolutely stay here again when we come back on better circumstances. There was a darling coffee shop, small grocery store and many restaurants within short walking distance.

Our stay at Dryades Suite was very nice & comfortable. The only downsides were lack of ice & a claw foot tub which was great looking, but tough on old folks to take a shower in.

great place

Had the house for a Beachbody conference. It was a great place and so glad to be in a home instead of being in a hotel room.

Our family and friends came to New Orleans to celebrate my son’s 30th birthday and we are so happy that we decided to stay at The Dryades House and The Dryades Suite. The place was exactly as described. The beds were extremely comfortable and it was nice having ceiling fans in all the rooms. There were enough towels for our stay. We rented both the house and the suite for our group of 7 adults. There was plenty of room. Although we only used the kitchen for the refrigerator and our morning coffee, it was nice having that option. The kitchen was stocked with coffee and creamer, which was nice. After being out all day it was nice coming home and having a drink on the front porch. There is a cute little coffee shop on the block that was so convenient and really made you feel like a local. We dined one night at Pascale’s down the street, and it did not disappoint. The street car on St. Charles is only a few blocks away. I always felt safe. We had trouble with our flight and needed to stay an extra day, so I contacted Val & Renee' and they immediately confirmed that we could stay an extra day and it was handled smoothly without any problems. Thank you for that. We all had a great time and fell in love with the city of New Orleans and I think staying like a local helped with that. Thank you again Val & Renee' for everything and for such a wonderful and memorable stay. If we return to New Orleans we will definitely stay here again.

Car: recommended

The Dryades Suite has a fabulous central location, located in Uptown New Orleans among world famous local restaurants and historic homes. Walk just 3 blocks to catch a ride on the famous New Orleans Streetcar! Cruise up and down historic and scenic St Charles Ave, take the street car to Canal Street. Exit near the foot of Canal street where it meets the River. In this area you can shop along the river front, enjoy some gambling at Harrah's casino. A short walk along the riverfront will bring you to the Aquarium, then St Louis Catherdral, Jackson Square with vendors, artists and musicians, enjoy a po boy, beignets and cafe au lait as you walk toward the historic French Market area. Or, stay on the street car to Canal and Bourbon Street where you can exit the street car and walk down world famous Bourbon Street. There's so much to see and do and eat in New Orleans! And, it's all so easy to get to from The Dryades Suite!
