I was here on business, and stayed here based on location, price, and having stayed here a few years ago. The hotel location is great - right in the middle of all St. Charles St. has to offer (many great restaurants - there's a Tex-Mex right next door, Superior Seafood *excellent* and Fat Harry's about 8 blocks away, and New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Company about 2 blocks away), close to the park/zoo, Tulane/Loyola, and right on the streetcar line which terminates right at the French Quarter. This is a great place to stay as there are many really good restaurants all within walking distance, and again - right on the streetcar line (there was some construction, so you had to take a bus to go through downtown and to the French Quarter, but stop is a block away).
There is free gated parking, the hotel - like all Hamptons - has the nice breakfast, which was amply stocked, always kept clean, and the hostesses were nice as could be. They also have a evening snack reception (cheese + crackers) which was a nice touch. The hotel is nice and clean, the rates are competitive for New Orleans, the staff are all very friendly and accommodating, and the rooms are typical Hampton, but that's not a negative.
I have stayed here before, and would definitely stay here again while in the area due to the great location, the cool vibe of the place (especially the lobby and ground floor area), the decent rates, and accommodating staff. Definitely take the streetcar up and down St. Charles and over to the French Quarter (if that's where you want to go) - much cheaper than taking a cab (about $12 from the edge of the French Quarter - Mr. B's Bistro is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to - to the hotel, vs. $1.75 bus/trolley fare).
