This is grouped with brands that don’t offer upgrades, but the T&Cs do not exclude it.

Remember that Hilton upgrade T&Cs are murky:

I have certainly received upgrades at Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton Inn hotels, even when they are officially excluded per the T&Cs.

It is not a surprise that there wouldn’t be upgrades at MOTTO, which looks like Hilton’s take of Marriott’s Moxy with tiny rooms and larger public spaces.

It would be ideal if Hilton would be more apparent to what upgrades (hopefully up to a select standard suite) Diamond members are eligible for.
