My wife and I recently spent six nights at Monrose Row for the first weekend of JazzFest (plus some more time, obviously). I've been to Nawlins many times, but had never stayed in Treme before, but a good friend stayed at Monrose Row two years ago, and highly recommended it. As the reviews indicate, he wasn't lying. Cindy is a gracious and welcoming innkeeper. My wife has digestive problems, so is limited to what she can eat for breakfast, and Cindy was incredibly sensitive to her limitations, and creative in finding really tasty things she could eat. The mainstream breakfasts are terrific: a good variety from day to day, and everything top notch quality. We stayed in Room Two on the second floor, which is really a small suite, since it has a plenty large enough sitting/living room for two people to read, do computer work, etc. The room was extremely comfortable: really high quality mattress and pillows, good reading light, room for storing hanging clothing, lots of outlets for all our electrical paraphernalia. Everything is kept very clean. The bathroom has a very good shower, and basic toiletries are provided. As others have mentioned, Cindy is very knowledgeable about the city, so very helpful for recommending laundry, grocery stores, restaurants, music scene, etc. Treme is an interesting neighborhood. We've visited it before (Backstreets Cultural Center, African American Museum, St. Augustine's Church), but it is a historically black neighborhood now beginning to undergo change as New Orleans continues to recover from Katrina. We definitely plan to return to Monrose Row.
