Stayed here only one night. It is a beautiful boutique hotel. It is near downtown, has good, clean, modern rooms with a great bed. Had the best sleep for a while! Good breakfast. The not so good: the wifi disconnected very frequently. I think a hotel in this category should have this sorted. And parking for $30 per night is... More

I stayed at Modera based on recommendations from my sister whose firm houses people there a lot. Prices in Portland were steep for my regular hotel so I thought I would give Modera a try. I travel quite a bit so my expectations may be high. The hotel is nicely modern in decor with bright colors and sleek lines. I... More

130mimiw, Thank you for taking the time to post a review on TripAdvisor. I was happy that you got an opportunity to dine in our restaurant Nel Centro, I agree the beet salad is good, be sure to try one of the pizzas on your next visit and you can never go wrong with our chef's daily fish special. Our... More

Hotel was quiet, simply designed, with a touch of elegance. Good location, in walking distance of everything. Will return but not with young kids. We reserved the suite with a package including champagne and truffles. Truffles locally made, champagne of alright quality. Good adult getaway.

My husband and I decided to get away to Portland for a few days, so after some looking around I decided to book with Hotel Modera. I booked through the hotel website, as the price was slightly less than on the various OTAs. The room overlooked the outdoor terrace on the fourth floor. It was nice, although it did smell... More

Hippopotame D, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We were happy to play host during your first time in Portland, I hope it won't be your last. Kudos to you for taking advantage of our TripAdvisor $1 parking promo, we like to think that sweetens the deal quite a bit. Our staff are the engine that... More

My stay at Hotel Modera was for company business. The rooms were average. The bathroom door was so heavy that one of our members got trapped in the bathroom because she could not move the door. Very heavy. Best feature was the food and the wait staff in our conference room. My husband enjoyed the location and being able to... More

I would have given this hotel a 3 1/2 star. I found it comparable to the Marriott I stayed at (both Priceline bids) the prior week but a less desirable location. The room was decent but nothing special. The public areas are much more interesting and artsy. The location would be great if attending theatre but not nearly as convenient... More

Staff was kind. Room was cozy yet trendy. Close to "city center" without all the extra noise of being in "city center". Right on public transit lines is a bonus (no need to rent a car). Was advised to check out local farmers market by restaurant staff and tried the local fare AWESOME! Overall great stay. Will book again.

Well south downtown Portland's main attractions, the Modera is one of those hotels reserves its inferior rooms for Priceline customers -- even when the price is relatively high. Amenities include complementary tickets to the meat-market 24 hour fitness, an overpriced restaurant and bar, and customer service that believes the customer is always wrong. Beware!

Happycamper206, Indeed, it does sound like your stay fell short of our expectations as well. We pride ourselves on having impeccable customer service and by reading the majority of these TripAdvisor posts you can see that your experience was not typical for a guest at Hotel Modera. In fact the post prior to yours makes mention of how well a... More

My profile on Tripadvisor talks heavily of service and that is how I will begin this review. The Hotel Modera was booked via Hotwire without knowing what we were getting. It was chosen because "boutique hotels" are typically a better choice in some cases - certainly in Portland. The hotel is cute, has a great courtyard, etc. and is pleasing... More

I have a soft spot for this hotel, having stayed here recently for my second time. While the facility is something from the 70's (I'm guessing) they have done a great job making this a charming and hip place. Beds are comfortable, great down pillows, clean, etc.The attached Nel Centro restaurant is also really quite good. The draw backs aren't... More
