We wanted to go to both Bourbon St. and Frenchmen St., so this worked really well for us. We were in room #1, which is the front room of the house on the first floor, directly inside the front door. I was afraid the front door noise would be an issue, but even though the house was full, we barely heard anyone come or go.
The room was lovely, but I will warn anyone over 200 lbs or 6 ft, the bathroom in our room would be a challenge for you. My 5'11" husband just barely cleared the ceiling in the bathroom, but it didn't bother me at all. If you are afraid this would be an issue, I would certainly request a room with a different bathroom layout.
We spent time on the front porch, which sits far enough from the street to allow us to enjoy the experience without constant interruption. Wednesday and Thursday nights were very quiet, Friday was louder, but it died down by midnight, and we were able to sleep without too much problem.
The staff was friendly and they accommodated our 8 pm check in with no problems. They are not onsite overnight, so be sure to take care of any business before 6 pm or make alternate arrangements.
We were pleased with our stay and definitely would stay again.
