Motto by Hilton Washington DC City Center

Top choice hotel in Downtown & Penn Quarter
Image by

The Pod is a micro-hotel with teeny rooms. But that's not necessarily bad, especially if you crave hipness at a reasonable price. Under-bed luggage storage and a work desk are among the clever design features. There's a comfort food diner and whiskey bar, a rooftop bar with free happy hour snacks, and savvy young staff presiding over it all.

The vibe is a bit like a hostel. It's a stone's throw from the Metro station and Chinatown Gate, and while there are plenty of people around, this stretch of street feels a tad sketchy at night.
