    Great locatjon

    The location was excellent. Walking distance to most of the sites in and around the Capitol and its surroundings. Also the ease of access to public transit was a plus for me. Yes, the rooms are small. But for the price and also ease of navigating the city, hardly a concern.

    Perfect location

    Location was excellent. The room was clean and comfortable. The room had a white noise machine and came with ear plugs. Security was excellent.

    Overall Great, Just Tiny

    The staff were very nice and the whole place was very clean. I was surprised by the size of the room. Apparently Motto does "travel-size" rooms which are basically just micro rooms. I didn't really see mention of that anywhere in the booking process. The room was literally just big enough for the bed and the bathroom was a foot from the bed with a sliding divider as a "door." Thankfully my friend and I didn't mind getting cozy but just be prepared for a tight fit. It makes sense why the price was cheaper than the others in the area now, I just would've liked a heads up before I booked. Otherwise, very cute hotel and it was super clean. Quick 10 minute walk from the National Mall and right in the middle of Chinatown so lots of great food.

    Great location!It is close to most major tourist attractions,museums,and restaurants....The rooms are perfect size for one who wants a good rest after a full day.But it is not only the location that makes Motto Hilton a great choice in D.C,but also the cleanliness,the creati ity to create comfort found in the smallest of details.Oh,the fine toiletries for such budget conscientious traveler.The room reminded me of small,but creative comfort of Scandinavian hotel rooms..

    Great room, convenient location, amazing staff!

    The hotel room was cozy and perfect for what we needed! The location was great - we walked most of the city and no matter what direction we took we were seeing a new area within 1.5 miles, if we didn't want to walk the train station was right across the street and was a stop with 3 lines to choose from. It was extremely clean and beyond all the staff was overly nice and made us feel welcomed every day! I would definitely stay here again when we visit DC.

    Nice place to stay with friendly staffs

    The hotel is very nice and valuable for the price - located in the good spot. Front desk staff are extremely helpful. They are super friendly. We found some problem during check in but Cheladi (pardon me if I spell her name wrong) handled it pretty well and professionally. Overall, we are very happy with this stay.

    The rooms on site was definitely not what I got. The plus was the room was clean. Unfortunately I will not be back unless I am solo.
