After reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor about Hotel Modera, we decided to give it a try for our recent stay in Portland. We were looking to be centrally located, but preferred to stay away from the big chain hotels. We were not disappointed! While the hotel itself was built several decades ago, it's been completely transformed into a stylish and comfortable oasis. The rooms are not gigantic, but they are well appointed and the beds are very comfortable. The hotel staff was especially friendly and helpful, without any of the "forced" sincerity you get at many hotels. While we never ate at the hotel restaurant, we did have drinks on the (once again) stylish terrace in the hotel's courtyard. If there is anything negative I could say, it would be about the steep charge for parking on site. (All of the hotels in the area charge similar prices, so Hotel Modera is simply keeping with the local market--and it is valet with unlimited in-out privileges). Overall, the vast majority of the reviews on this site are right on: Hotel Modera is one of the best hotels in Portland.
