A perfect base of operation for a visit to Philadelphia! I stayed with my 8 year old grandson for two nights. Very clean with a wonderful staff. As advertised the rooms are “travel style”..small but comfortable. He was thrilled I got the room with bunk beds. Walking distance to museums and restaurants.

Dayle D,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! It's wonderful to hear you and your grandson had a pleasant experience. We are thrilled he enjoyed the bunk beds! They are one of the many unique aspects of Motto, so I am excited to learn how much he enjoyed them.

Thank you for staying with us - we hope to welcome you both back!

Kindly,
Samantha Miller

My husband and I were in Philadelphia and stayed at The Motto the weekend before traveling on to central PA to see family and returned to
The Motto the following weekend before flying out to our home in Georgia. We found the hotel to be sparkling clean, very upscale, and the staff were personable and accommodating. The rooms that we had on both overnight trips were very small but clean and comfortable. Perhaps they have larger rooms there--we don't know--- but our room was perfectly fine. The bed is comfortable, the pillows were great (that's a big deal for us), and the bathroom was fine. Good shower, great water pressure. The hotel is in a good location with lots of good eateries within walking distance. There is a great Mid Eastern convenient store/deli a few doors down from The Motto with excellent takeout and a huge selection of fresh juices and smoothies. The Mutter Museum is a quick ten minute walk from the hotel. There is parking across the street from The Motto for around $30 a day (overnight). We will definitely stay here again!

We've stayed twice at Motto and found it to be clean, comfortable and new. If you get the deal with breakfast, it's actually excellent value.

Be forewarned the standard double is quite small, has no chair (but instead a sort of window seat) and is minimalist dorm room-like. But it all works and the staff is pleasant.

The hotel ahs a bit of a "happening" top floor scene, We visited once but we are far too old and it seemed really load (REALLY LOUD) to geezer ears.

Extra: excellent gym, with quite good weights and 3 exercise bikes including a Peloton.

Room tip: not sure you want to be on highest floor due to club on top, we were on 4th, which was fine.

If you can avoid staying here, it would be the best decision you will make. I read reviews about it being clean, which it is but the rooms are cold and sparsely decorated with the cheapest furniture. The corridors look like dorms and the rooms feel sterile like a hospital room but I would rather stay in a hospital. ……. horrible

715ashs,

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. I am disappointed that you did not have the best experience with us. As a micro-hotel, Motto focuses on efficiency so that our guests can enjoy an excellent location at an unbeatable price. We understand our concept may not be for everyone and would hope to welcome you a different Hilton hotel in the future.

Kindly,

Clean, modern hotel . Perfect for a short stay. Very close to local shops and parks. Food in hotel was good and easy to access. Restaurant downstairs, rooftop bar, and coffee shop right at the door. Staff were all very kind.
