“You couldn't ask for more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2009

I stayed at the Hotel Modera on three different occasions in May.
Perfect location close to everything.
The rooms are hip and comfortable; super clean and modern, fantastic bed, awesome flat panel LCD television, the staff is professional and friendly.
My most recent stay was even better - Nel Centro, the on-site full service restaurant has opened and it is wonderful. Beautiful, well run, great bar and amazing food..... perfect for meeting clients or friends.
It's without a doubt my top place to stay in Portland.

We attended the grand opening of the restaurant at Modera, Nel Centro, and it was like finally getting the icing on the cake! The appetizers were surprising/amazing/yummy and the gourmet pizzas were perfect. The roast pig was tasty and juicy. Their pastry chef is world renowned, so the desserts were even more spectacular.
I gush, I know, but with all the "choices" (read: there is only one choice, now, in downtown Portland) it blows the mind to imagine _wanting_ to stay anywhere else...
Modera rocks.

My husband and I were invited to the opening of Nel Centro, a new restaurant in Portland, Oregon and we decided to spend the night downtown at the Hotel Modera. The restaurant is in the same building as the Modera so it seemed convenient, and although the opening was grand and wonderful, the real treat was our stay at the hotel. We loved it from the minute we entered the lobby, a modern light filled space with amazing local art and a courtyard that is expansive and beautiful---plants, sculpture and outdoor seating. Our room was equally impressive. The decor is modern, but also plush and inviting. Lovely appointments, and thoughtful touches seem to be a hallmark of this hotel. The staff was friendly and thoughtful and made us feel welcome. The experience was 5 stars all the way!

I stayed for my birthday, was given a free upgrade in room. The rooms are quiet, clean and modern; very nice. The hotel is close to all of the shopping, and has a great restaurant in it, Nel Centro, which I highly recommend.

What a refreshing delight. We went to Portland to play in the city and Hotel Modera was in a great location. We parked on Friday and never saw our car until we left on Sunday. The Hotel Modera is trendy and unque, with outstanding service. Along with begin close to all transportation, the water, the Pearl District and it is still nice and quite. We look forward to returning again and again

My boyfriend and I have stayed at the Hotel Modera twice now. Once last year in August and again this year in May. Both times we have been nothing but pleased with our rooms, the service and especailly the staff. The rooms are always nice and clean and the beds are pretty big and comfy!!! The front desk has plenty of information for their guests regarding anything from where to get a great slice of pizza to all sorts of activities that one can do in the city. The location is near everything. You are close to the highway, downtown, and the transit system. However, if you are driving to the hotel, beware of the "bus only lanes" that is near it! Apparently it isn't legal to be in that lane unless you are a bus. Otherwise than that, everything has always been wonderful there. We are very much looking forward to our next visit to Portland and will definitely be staying there!!!!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Hotel Modera in early May for the second time and were just as impressed as the first time. The staff is very friendly and helpful for someone like my self who isn't to familiar with the city. They had great recommendations for dining and nightlife. The hotel very visually apealing as well as functional. The beds are very comfortable. The location of the hotel is great too. Easy access to downtown and public transit, to easily manuver the city.
