Monrose Row
Ranked #33 of 141 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 18, 2013

We stayed at Cindy's beautiful B&B in November. She was a superb hostess, who is the physical embodiment of Southern hospitality. She shared her vast knowledge of the area including dining options, music venues, quality historical tours and excellent directions to get us to everything safely. Her delicious breakfasts included coffee, fruit and a main dish (almond french toast and collard greens and ham quiche were fantastic!) Her home is beautiful, immaculate and welcoming. Our room was quiet, spacious and romantic. We loved all the old cypress wood details. It is a short, easy, fun walk to the French Quarter. We almost didn't write a review, because we want to keep this gem a secret, but it's just too good not to share!

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.

My husband and I booked Monrose Row after our daughter stayed there last year for Jazzfest, and couldn't stop talking about it. We have never stayed at a B and B before. If you want to know how much we enjoyed ourselves, and appreciated Cindy's hospitality, just know that I am typing this from my iPhone at the airport! I have never submitted a review before! The room was lovely. The breakfasts fabulous. Cindy's knowledge of the city is incredible. This was our 6th or 7th Jazzfest, but we have never felt so "in the know" before. We will be back for sure.

Monrose Row is located on a beautiful tree lined street, just a minutes walk away from the hustle of the French Quarter. The interior is immaculately designed, perfectly clean and super comfortable. Cindy is a brilliant, helpful and charming host. I can't recommend this place enough.

We had a wonderful suite in an historic home with a delightful B&B owner. The rooms were large, comfortable, modern - with an atmosphere of colonial New Orleans. This B&B is not in the French Quarter (about 15 minute walk from the interesting part of the French Quarter), but it is peaceful. Our cab driver had some trouble finding it since there is no sign....so be patient.

Room Tip: We had the top floor and were just delighted with our suite. We even ate dinner there on night to av...

My husband and I spent four nights at Monrose Row and plan to stay there again next time we are in New Orleans. Cindy is a great host - makes a delicious breakfast, provides excellent recommendations, and has a beautiful, well-maintained home. We would recommend Monrose Row to anyone looking for a comfortable, affordable, and sweet place to stay.

Monrose Row is a quiet, super super clean, stylish B&B. The Treme neighborhood is just outside of the French Quarter, and it has more permanent residents than it does tourists. Pretty cool.

We stayed at Monrose Row two nights as part of a cross-country road trip. Cindy, the innkeeper, directed us towards the most amazing restaurants and was generous with advice about where to go for good music and nightlife. I have to admit our room was so nice, we were tempted to just stay in!

We had Room #4, which is on the top floor. Plenty of space, skylights, nice bathroom, separate living room area, huge closet.

The food was the best. The two breakfasts we had there were completely different, both being a great balance of fresh, healthy and indulgent options. My favorite was the gluten free muffins, and Cindy gave us a couple for the road. She was even kind enough to send me the recipe!

This is really the best way to experience New Orleans.
