What We Do

At Modus, we blend industry and market knowledge together with an innovative approach to leadership and management. We think like owners and investors, resulting in assets that continually deliver out sized returns. We have three particular areas of focus:

 
Lifestyle Experiences

Each Modus Hotel is more than just a place to sleep. At Modus, we are connecting guests to personalized, authentic experiences — within our hotels, in our neighborhoods and throughout the city. We utilize our local knowledge and relationships to develop unique programming and partnerships at each property.

 
Micro Hotels

We pioneered this value-driven trend in Washington, DC and have since expanded to other markets. From construction to brand development and operations, we have extensive experience across multiple micro-brands.

  • Pod Philly – Modus partnered with The Pod Hotels to develop and operate the brand’s first locations outside of New York City.
  • Motto by Hilton – Modus converted Pod DC to Motto by Hilton Washington DC City Center, which opened in 2020 as the first Motto location worldwide.
  • Hotel Hive – In partnership with Abdo Development, Modus opened Hotel Hive in 2017. Washington DC’s first micro-hotel.
 
Regional Expertise 

Modus demonstrates a principal understanding and focus within Washington DC, Philadelphia and New England markets. Our approach is a shared services model allowing expertise to be shared across the portfolio—passing along knowledge and savings to owners and investors.
