We've stayed at the Modera at least 3 or 4 times. Nicely located in downtown SW Portland within walking distance of The Pearl the NW and much of downtown. The hotel has been nicely updated from its undoubtedly dowdy 1960's origins of small rooms and a boxy dormlike shape of an L-shaped building with flat roof. The rooms are still small, of course, but they have top-of-the-line very comfy pillow top king beds (or queens), and a nicely appointed bathroom, albeit with a regular old-fashioned tub-shower. You of course get free wi-fi and high-speed internet, and a flat-screen TV. The discount package with $10 per night valet parking was a draw as well.
Negatives are street noise (especially from the city king rooms), tons of outside night lighting you can't shut out unless you close all the curtains. At which point you have no outside ventilation and the room is bound to be hot and stuffy, especially in the fall/winter when you can't run air-conditioning, only heat. The only opening window (an awning window) was on the pillow side of our bed, so the outside lighting was in our eyes all night as we kept the window uncovered to let in air. Definitely disturbed my sleep. A hotel engineer came at 10:30 pm to give us an electric fan to circulate the cool air inside do the temperature would drop below 70 degrees. I like a cool (below 60) dark room for sleeping so these are strong negatives. However, better choices in downtown Portland are few.
