I stayed here for a business trip in May. Everything was very lovely. The staff was courteous and friendly. The location was very good and the restaurant and bar were top notch. The room was very large and well appointed. All in all it was one of the best work stays I've ever had.

I think this is a beautiful boutique hotel, great service, delicious restaurant for breakfast or dinner, great patio with fireplaces to to take a wine and have something to eat. We had a trouble with the A/C, they try to fix it during the 5 days we were there and they couldn't. Is expensive but a different nice, God location... More

My expectations were high after learning this was a newly renovated hotel. I'm sorry to say, the hotel still had the look and feel of an old Days Inn, to include the loud, non air blowing air conditioner. It isn't a horrible place, but for the price, I expected more and I wasn't very comfortable. What I loved about this... More

A nice hotel in downtown Portland right next to PSU and a short walk to the waterfront. Clean. Comfortable beds. Easy access to green and yellow light rail lines. Friendly staff. Restaurant food is good, albeit a little expensive as is typical in hotels. I can understand the concerns in some reviews about the street noise. I didn't find it... More

Just spent five great nights at Hotel Modera, and could hardly think of anything negative to say. The location, very near downtown and PSU, right by public transit, and close to countless coffee shops, restaurants and diners, was ideal. The staff was very welcoming and friendly, and the accommodations were very pleasant. If I was pressed for any criticism, it... More

This is a hotel that should be a 4 or 5-star property. Has lots going for it, with modern rooms. However, bit by bit the rating went down as increasing number of problems arose. Some were not fault of hotel - it is a good 8-10 minute walk to the centre of Portland. Not bad, but uphill on return. Just... More

Great location, walking distance to all the hotspots downtown. Public transportation very close and you're just a few short blocks from the waterfront! I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Modera. Rooms were clean, comfortable, modern and stylish. Staff was welcoming and friendly and I really enjoyed their restaurant Nel Centro. I look forward to returning on my next visit... More

Hotel Modera is centrally located and this in walking distance to many of downtown Portland's many wonderful offerings. It has a nice courtyard area and reportedly a good restaurant, although it was closed during our stay. While these are nice amenities, the hotel is definitively overpriced for the room size, accommodations, parking fees, and unrefined bathrooms. The rooms are very... More

Situated in the SW downtown area of Portland, this hotel is close to many restaurants and the cultural district. it is quite modern in design and the rooms are smallish but not uncomfortably so. I will say the staff for the most part were pleasant but one lady in particular had a bit of a brusque demeanor and did not... More
