situated in the heart of historical Faubourg Treme

Our History

Only two blocks from the French Quarter, Monrose Row is situated in the heart of historical Faubourg Treme. A melting pot of cultures, the Treme was home to infamous Storyville and Basin Street. The birthplace of Jazz and Dixieland music, the Faubourg still reflects the character that shaped it. Even today it is not uncommon to see an impromptu Second Line Parade and hear that inimitable sound that is New Orleans.

Part of a group of three, three story Greek Revival row houses, Monrose Row was begun in 1839 for Charles Monrose. Monrose , who had a bakery and residence on Bourbon Street until 1838, moved to the corner building, the first of his planned row, opening his business in 1839.

Later that same year, Monrose's creditors held public auction and he lost his new property to attorney Louis Janin. Janin immediately completed the row of three houses and sold each to separate owners.




One hundred and seventy years later, after meticulous restoration, awarded by the Historic District Landmarks Commission, Monrose Row is available for accommodations.

Being a small (only 4 suites) Bed and Breakfast allows us time to give attention to detail and the needs of our guest.

Whatever your plans, you will find that Monrose Row Bed and Breakfast provides an interesting, private, comfortable and convenient accommodation.
