My two sisters, my mother, and I recently spent three nights at Monrose Row, with Cindy as our gracious hostess. Cindy has spent years carefully renovating this beautiful row house. It now has gorgeous art, beautiful linens, high class furnishings, a lovely outdoor space, and endless thoughtful, classy details. The rooms we had were spacious (huge ceilings!) and unique. The bathrooms had a myriad of amenities and there were always new bottles of water for day trips. The breakfasts were superb - fruit salad with kiwi and fresh pineapple, fresh waffles with strawberries, a bowl of dates, homemade muffins, kale quiche... One morning, we sat (just the four of us) for about three hours in her beautiful dining room while Cindy managed to give us privacy and yet still notice when we needed more coffee or a question answered. On the last morning, when we had to leave early to catch a plane, she packed a bag breakfast for us to eat later.
Cindy also spent a considerable amount of time pouring over maps with us and giving suggestions on what to do, calling a venue for information, and answering our endless questions. She knows the city well. I have already recommended Monrose Row to others and will continue to do so.
