My boyfriend and I were in Portland checking out Lewis and Clark during an orientation weekend that they were hosting. This was one of the recommended hotels, and after reading countless reviews we decided on the Hotel Modera. It was a great stay and we got more than our $$ worth.
Love the decor! Very retro/mod with clean lines and fabulous fixtures
Key-card access elevators - no creeps off the street getting to the rooms
SUPER comfy beds with LOTS of fluffy pillows.
Very central to everything (amazing food carts within walking distance!!)
Awesome staff - very helpful, and attentive, couldn't have asked for better.
Flexible about late checkouts - I am NOT a morning person (or sometimes an afternoon person, for that matter), and all I had to do was call down to the front desk and they gave us a 2pm checkout with no charge. Very much appreciated!!
They even had fancy ice/ice buckets.
Parking is valet only (on site) - Not too expensive, but I like being able to get to my car whenever, without it being a total production. However, that being said, I did feel very fancy having the valet bring our car around any time we wanted. (Would have felt fancier if I had bothered to wash/vacuum my car...)
Very strict about the non-smoking. (Good for self-righteous non-smokers, bad for my poor boyfriend who had to stand out in the rain) Covered smoking area would be nice is all I'm saying.
The rooms are small, or at least ours was. Not bad since you probably aren't in Portland to stay in your hotel room, but things do get a bit "cozy". Also, due to the bathroom/door design, there were several instances when I was trapped in the bathroom until my boyfriend was done getting things out of the closet. Not so great when you're in a hurry and your outfit is in the other room
***Overall this is a great hotel, and if I were going back to Portland I would stay there again. ***
