Basic hotel for a Botique hotel. Nice modern hotel. Rooms are small. The check in was easy no issues. There was an issue with the AC the room was warm. I did mention it to the staff in the morning. no response. It would be nice to have coffee or tea in the lobby.

We are pdxers that now live in the burbs with our kids, but went to Modera for a night out. From the staff, to the amenities, we were very pleased with our experience at Modera. We would recommend it as a more affordable, but nice, option in downtown PDX.

First trip to Portland!! Getting a clear price for the weekend was a difficult thing to do while making the reservation with ONSITE staff. I asked for a final price, twice from two differant people on two separate occasions. After finally committing to the price the confirmation email showed the 15% room tax that I was previously told was included.... More

Two night stay. Got up at 4 am for a flight out and no hot water after I let run for 10 minutes. Same with the person I was traveling with. When I reported to the front desk, there was an "oh sorry" but was not doing anything about it. Plenty of hotels in Portland to stay in, I will... More

This was our first trip to Portland. We could not have chosen a better hotel. It was centrally located, so easy to walk around the city. The hotel was beautifully appointed and all the staff were very helpful. Johnny, the concierge was particularly helpful. He suggested places to eat which we visited. He was correct, they were great choices. All... More

We have visited Portland many times, and always settled in the NW part of town. This hotel and location is much preferred and is our new destination. Very likable, relaxed and friendly staff, clean well appointed grounds and room, great attachment to the city.

Service: everybody on staff was helpful and really nice. They granted all my small requests (getting an extension cable and toothbrush to my room, holding my bags after checking out) and got the room ready for us before we checked in, even though it was a bit early in the day. Room: the hotel is gorgeous! We got the executive... More

I've stayed at Hotel Modera three or four times now. I like the overall design of the hotel and the staff are extremely helpful. I stayed here for two nights recently because I got an amazing deal online. However, I don't think it deserves some of the accolades it receives for being a supposedly high end boutique hotel. There are... More

We booked a room at the last minute after our booking elsewhere fell through, and we're so glad we did. While there are nicer and posher hotels in the area, this one had the right combination of price, location, and quality. The staff at Modera made us feel welcome the moment we arrived, and Jonny, the concierge, was a wealth... More

The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with our dog that joined us on our retreat. The hotel was in a great location. We went during Halloween and the staff was very festive and fun! We would definitely stay at Hotel Modera again in the future.
