The Hampton Inn in the Garden District is a comfortable hotel, with a nice breakfast every morning and we had a good, quality room with soft bedding, refrigerator, microwave, hanging closet, etc. If this hotel wasn't quite so expensive, I'd give it a higher rating. For the price, I wish that I would have paid just a little more to be closer to the heart of New Orleans. To me the question isn't the quality of the hotel, since it was very nice, it's just the price for what you get. I think you can get more bang for your buck elsewhere.
It does have a fairly good location, being about 15 minutes or so from Canal Street on the streetcar (which costs $1.25 per person each way... and you need exact cash since they don't give change). Taking the streetcar is easy since there is one that stops directly in front of the hotel. If you are wanting to find dinner close to the hotel, there are a few options. About seven blocks away is the Cafe Atchafalaya which is expensive but with exceptional food. There is a wine bar close, The Delachaise, which I was not impressed with and wouldn't go back to. There is also a restaurant in the hotel next door, but we never went.
