We go to Portland quite a lot since we live in Seattle. We have stayed at many hotels downtown, now that Hotel Modera is dog friendly we were able to stay here and so happy to report it was a wonderful stay. The staff was so kind friendly and helpful. The hotel is great with simple modern decor, the rooms... More

For many reasons I am no fan of Portland, but I LOVE this hotel. Quirky, beautiful, environmentally friendly, and just plain friendly, I try to stay here whenever I need to be back in Portland. Fun fire pit outside, cool restaurant and bar inside, lovely rooms, perfect location... its wonderful in every way!

Stayed here one night in a suite, which turned out to really be a very small room with a narrow bath and a living room area with a foldaway couch made into a bed. The room was small, but clean and cuter than anything else I would rate 3 stars. In fact, the hotel in general had many features that... More

The only reason this hotel doesn't get 5 stars is due to it's cooling system in Springtime. If you have a suite on the top floor, it can be warm in your room. The staff at this property was some of the best I have ever seen. The front desk went beyond the norm to provide excellent dining options, provide... More

Stayed here the night before college visit to PSU. Location perfect. Interior lobby area perfect. Linens/bed comfort perfect. Staff friendly helpful accommodating. All around decor was fun and modern but also warm and comfy. Towels and bath products perfect. Downside was a noisy fan and slight draft in our room but for a single night was not worth bringing up... More

Expedia claims that the hotel is 4 stars, and it was priced accordingly. When we were driving up to hotel, the top several floors of the building looked fairly old and run down. Once we got to the actual driveway, things looked better. The hotel lobby was nice, but simple, which was the first thing that made the hotel feel... More

The Hotel Modera bills itself as a “luxury boutique” hotel. As a boutique property, it is well-appointed and charming, and my room was immaculately clean - but quite small for how this property markets itself. The Modera unfortunately falls short of one’s “luxury” expectations, especially regarding customer service. When traveling, my two primary expectations are: cleanliness and excellent customer service.... More

My husband and I decided to spend New Years Eve in Portland, and met up with family members at the Hotel Modera. This hotel is unique in style, and exceeds others in customer service. The room was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. I was really pleased to find a pet friendly hotel, in downtown Portland, but the best part was... More

My fiance and I were in Oregon visiting family for the holidays after Christmas, so we wanted to stay in the downtown area for the new years weekend. Great hotel, friendly staff and the rooms were great. We also booked another room for my parents, who have a small dog. They have a pet friendly room and the staff brought... More
