Washington DC, District of Columbia496 contributions148 helpful votes
I loved this hotel so much and am so glad Hilton converted it into a MOTTO, keeping the overall new hardware/construction of the former Pod hotel while not losing the people that work there and their commitment to great friendly service. Rooms are small ala Pod and thoughtfully designed with everything working. Being a relatively brand new build, all furnishings, window seals etc are in great condition and sparkly new. There were not many people there given DC was going into lockdown mode before the inauguration but the rooms seems really quiet either from hallway noise or rooms next door. Having a smart connected TV with netflix etc was also great. I do wish there was a coffee maker in the room but I understand that isn't what those Hilton is targeting with MOTTO are looking for:-) I agree with all the previous comments about front desk staff being super responsive and friendly. This extends to others working there also. I had an issue with my tv and maintenance was there within 5 minutes. Restaurant/breakfast is limited due to covid restrictions but would be a great place to hang out when fully operational. Location is great. People are great. Rooms are great. If you don't mind smaller rooms, this is a great choice.

Hotel's Favourite
This hotel is my absolute favorite to stay in DC, it has the most amazing location, close to the Washington Mall and right next to metro and buses. There are a lot of restaurants nearby and a rooftop bar, restaurant and cafe on the premises. This is a microtel and it perfect for my solo work trips, everything is clean and perfect. The staff here is amazing! I am a travel ER nurse and they know my name! Alisa, Rodrigo and Geraldine always greet me with a smile and ask how my day was as well as if there is anything I need. Sam and Theresa were also present almost every morning and very welcoming. I couldn't ask for a better place, I am going to continue to stay here for the rest of my travel assignment and have recommended all my fellow travel nurses! Thank you as always!

Hotel was very clean. Covid restrictions in place (cleaning/elevator/staff/guests). Location is very good. Although limited, breakfast and coffee was nice. Given the current Covid restrictions, I felt that the accommodations and services were above average.

Theresa was exceptional on every level. She checked us in and assisted us with every aspect of our stay from parking directions dos and don'ts, tips on how to get around, reccomending the best restaurants to enjoy, etc. She is the definition of hospitality and was an exceptionally friendly and gracious host.
