I'm lucky I get to travel all over the world. Usually in 5-star or high-end boutique Hotels. I try to never go to the same place again because I prefer adventure and hate routine. This changed with the Modera Hotel in Portland. Why? It's not because of the rooms. They are OK and have all the amenities. It's because of... More

The staff, accomodations, decor and location make this boutique hotel a real gem! I loved the fact that the staff was always smiling and helpful. It didn't hurt that the bed was firm and the pillows were down.

Stayed here for 3 nights and it's about 30 minutes to PDX. Comfortable, modern, friendly staff, breakfast - well made and tasty and room-service (breakfast) as good as restaurant. Loved the bar in the courtyard and it's popular with hotel guests and with businesses in the neighborhood. I was able to walk to Pioneer Square (about 5 blocks away). Sleep... More

I stayed at the modera at the end of a wine touring trip in Oregon. The hotel is a remodel of an old building but once inside you wouldn't know. Everything is clean and contemporary. The restaurant down stairs is OK but there are many better options in Portland. The hotel is located a few blocks from busiest part of... More

The Modera Hotel is nice. Nothing outstanding but there are no complaints. It is elegant but not pretentious, nice clean and the staff is cool. the price is a but high up but they deliver everything they promise.

This is a really, really nice hotel in a terrific location. I just was expecting better service, better amenities, and a better vibe/culture. Perhaps I was expecting the service and amenities of the Heathman and the chic of W Hotels, and it felt more like a Starbucks. I know it is Oregon and not New York, but for the price.... More

The Modera is a nice hotel with very kind staff. The decor is modern and the rooms are clean. We enjoyed a drink on the terrace. Service was good and the terrace was a nice place to spend some time. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but had breakfast there, it was okay. We booked only the day before and... More

We stayed in Hotel Modera for a week in June-July 2014. The location is convenient to downtown Portland with easy access to public transportation. On first impression, the rooms and hotel are clean. The lobby area and outdoor seating area are quite nice. The valet staff is very welcoming and very friendly. In fact, they offered better recommendations than the... More

Very comfortable and friendly. We stayed one night in a king room on the top floor facing the courtyard which was very quiet (I'm usually very sensitive to noise). It was an efficient use of space and the room didn't feel small; we've definitely stayed in smaller. Nice staff overall including the restaurant and were quick to respond. If you're... More

Held a business meeting here, with people from USA and Europe. The hotel and facilities were great. The conference room gave plenty of space, the wifi works really well - face-timing home was no hassle at all. Food is of a high quality and the fire pits outside a real good place everyone to relax and have a chat. All... More
