My husband and I spent one night here. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant had good food. And the room was really comfortable and clean. I also appreciate a few of the details. Refillable soap dispensers in the shower instead of tiny plastic bottles that are thrown out. The minibar was totally reasonably priced. They even had an... More

The location is fantastic, within easy walking distance to many popular locations. The restaurant, Nel Centro, is great and the bar area--especially outside with the large fire tables is an awesome place to enjoy a drink at the end of the busy day. The rooms are very basic, small and not particularly comfortable. There is not even a lounge chair... More

We stayed here for our 22nd wedding anniversary and were excited. Their website told us we should expect a "sophisticated environment shaped with modern simplicity and practical comfort." And the hotel does live up to that. The lobby looks hip and swank in a Mad Men kind of way. Nel Centro is the restaurant attached to the hotel -it was... More

Hotel Modera is a nice hotel located in a central area in Portland. It was very easy to get to on public transportation, and has modern decor. The front desk service was great, we were given a map with nearby attractions as soon as we checked in. Our standard room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, and it was... More

This is a nice hotel located fairly close to downtown with a good restaurant. It would be a perfect location for anyone having business at Portland State University, but it is also convenient to the art museum and Pioneer Square. Valet parking is expensive so we used a garage about a block away. The rooms are small, but comfortable and... More

I stayed in the hotel as a solo traveler who booked the room through a name your price bid. Overall the stay at the hotel was very good. My room was a bit banged up but not in horrible condition. I was given a handicapped room which made for a unique bathroom which was basically a stall-less shower. The hotel... More

I cant believe the extreme of both good and bad I experienced in this hotel. Amazingly gifted front desk staff-helpful and accomodating; I really loved the concierge named Johnny really would have garnered 5 -stars for his brilliance. Then you are forced to deal with the restaurant., something that couldnt be a bigger nightmare!! Over-priced terrible food and the worst... More

This hotel has a great parking garage (valet parking) and is located near other parking garages if you don't mind a short walk. Its also about 300 feet from the Max stop, so you can get anywhere you want! The restaurant thats on location has a great menu and a very good happy hour. We stayed here for the Cher... More
