I stayed at Motto by Hilton while on an overnight trip to DC. It's located across the street from the Metro and the area has everything you need. The staff was very welcoming, and I was even provided a map of the area and a welcome text. Room temperature was great, and everything was spotless. I'll be staying here on my next visit to DC . Great place, great employees.

Hotel's Favourite
Ok the rooms were small, If you can deal with that, this hotel is a great deal, very well priced rooms and this place is near everything, its less than a mile from the Capital, The White House and the National Mall, you can walk to all of them from here. The rooms were immaculate and brand new, There are also 2 bars on premise one of them has music on weekends (at least when I was there) This is one of the best locations Ive ever stayed at (I like rooms within walking distance of everything) This hotel is for a single or a couple, I would not recommend for a family. The hotel staff was great Brooke and a blond woman with glasses (Sorry I didnt get her name) who works there in the morning, they are very friendly and help make the stay even better. You are not likely to find any hotel in this price range within walking distance to the National Mall the Capital and the White House. This hotel DOES have private bathrooms, dont let the price fool you, Its a great deal (Its cheaper because the rooms are smaller) Dont let the room size bother you, this is not a hotel to hang out in the hotel room, this is a hotel to hang about time or in the Roof Top Bar (Yes this hotel has a Roof top bar) and a basement bar as well

We stayed here for the weekend and it was a great experience. Very clean and modern. The front desk staff was great. They knew it was my birthday and had a card sent to my room which was very nice. The roof top bar was a great place for after dinner drinks. I would definitely stay here again.

I recommend booking directly with this hotel if you can. The front desk charged me a second time for my stay during check-in because the person helping me didn't take note of the fact that I had already paid via Orbitz. I wish she had asked first instead of after the fact I had swiped my card, which I thought was just for a security deposit. I'm very familiar with Orbitz so I tried telling her that I was sure I paid online, but she became defensive and started over-explaining things to me. It felt like she was set on not believing me and didn't bother to see my online receipt. Luckily, her coworker was able to quickly confirm my paid booking. It was awkward and unwelcoming being questioned and not even being offered a small apology afterwards. The charge ultimately did not go through, but I travel a lot for work and this was the first time this type of mistake and condescending treatment has happened. Aside from that, Motto is decent. Rooms are cozy, clean, and efficient for the space given. It's very minimalistic and reminds me of Tokyo hotels, if not smaller. Complimentary water bottles were in the room. The hotel is in a great location; it's a 10 minute walk to the convention center. There's a lot of good food nearby. They also let me send packages prior to my arrival and were very helpful with that, which I really appreciated. I felt safe in the building as everything requires a key card. No dolleys are available for multiple or heavy luggage. No microwave or mini-fridge in the rooms. I didn't really mind but it's worth noting that my room's view was unfortunately a brick wall, which is sort of funny. Overall, I want to give them 4 stars but I'm rating down since check-in felt confusing after a long day of traveling and honestly left a bad taste in my mouth. I will stay elsewhere the next time I'm in DC, but I'm sure Motto is good for shorter casual visits. Again, book directly to eliminate any unnecessary headache. Hopefully you have a more professional and warmer reception than I did.

Thank you for the feedback. It is disappointing that we missed the mark at check-in and that there was an error with your reservation. I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. This feedback has been shared with our team and with our Orbitz partner so that we can avoid this in the future. For the most seamless check-in experience, we recommend booking direct via Hilton and taking advantage of the discounts and benefits our Hilton Honor members receive. Again, thank you for feedback and bringing this to our attention so that we may improve in the future.
