As a caveat, I have routinely been disappointed by New Orleans hotels, and there is a strong argument that I just need to lower my expectations for the city. For this Hampton Inn, it checks all of the basic boxes. Staff are friendly, the free breakfast/WiFi is always appreciated, rooms are clean, and you are perfectly located close enough (without being too close) to the French Quarter. That said, this hotel (like most in New Orleans) gives off a bit of a tired feel. There is a strong mildew odor in the lobby, the lobby carpet is rolling up in many places, the elevators creak and groan with some trepidation, and the rooms need a solid makeover (stains widely on carpet in rooms and hallways, cracked bathroom fixtures, old-appearing color schemes). You're in downtown New Orleans for less than $150 so it is a bit "you get what you pay for" but I have definitely stayed at many a Hampton Inn that have nailed it. This one isn't quite there.
