Washington DC, District of Columbia43 contributions69 helpful votes
I work at Reagan Natl airport during the work week so I usually stay at the Hampton Inn in Crystal City, close enough to walk to work. I decided to shake things up and stay in DC proper and was intrigued by what I read about the Motto. I have to say that I am thoroughly impressed. Yes, the rooms are very cozy, but I’m by myself and the location is excellent. The yellow line is across the street so I have a straight shot to the airport. We are right in the middle of China Town, which means a load of great restaurants in an easy walk (Pho last night at Pho 88 and Mussels in Red Sauce tonight at Carmines). The rooms, though tiny are very well appointed. Comfy bed with the controls for the temp within easy reach of the bed. 55” TV, internet works great. I tend to wake really early and went stumbling downstairs for coffee at 4:30, sure enough there was a fresh pot waiting. A single or a couple going to a hockey game or concert at the Cap Center will love this place. Lots of little cubbies and shelves to store things. The place is really modern and clean, the staff is uber friendly and has lots of security measures in place (important when you are in the middle of all of the action). I have a couple more weeks of work here in DC and I’m pretty sure I’ll be staying here.

Hotel's Favourite
I am quite critical when it comes to staying at hotels. I read the positive reviews on Tripadvisor as well, but you never really know. After having a horrible experience at a nearby hotel in DC, I walked into Motto and was warmly greeted by Brooke. Oh, yeah. She's real and amazing at her job! I also want to compliment Jenni, Sharon and Isobel as well. They really know how to take care of their customers. Hospitality is a skill! Quality customer care is a skill. This hotel delivers! I have absolutely no complaints. I enjoyed my quaint little room. It was cozy with just enough room for one person. If you're traveling solo, this place is sufficient. My only advice is: reserve a room far in advance to lock in the best deal. Many thanks to the wonderful staff at Motto. They are my top pick for hotels in DC.

My wife and I had a great experience at Motto during our weekend in D.C. We got into our room early, which was very convenient (we knew there were no guarantees of getting in the room early, but our timing was lucky.) We woke up early and there was complimentary coffee in the lobby that we weren't expecting, so that was a pleasant surprise. (coffee is only there until the cafe opens) All of the staff was helpful and kind, especially Brooke. The hotel itself is beautiful, modern and sleek. Everything was clean and comfortable in our room. Location is great, with easy access to the mall, metro and plenty of restaurants. We will definitely be choosing this hotel again when we visit D.C. next.

The advantages of this hotel are clear: a helpful, friendly staff and a very central location. The disadvantages are also clear: rooms so small that they barely encompass the bed, and some noise owing mainly to the hotel's being situated where it is. Four stars.

My wife and I loved our stay here. Classy style and decor. Rooms are a little small, but they are intelligently designed to make use of the space. The front desk help, especially Brooke and Jordan, we're fantastic. Definitely coming back!
