We stayed May 20-22 for our 5th anniversary and loved it. We got an awesome deal online with free valet parking (which totally helped, since parking is $20/day).
The staff was wonderful...very helpful and friendly.
They put us in room 505 for our 5th anniversary, which was very thoughtful, and there was wine and chocolate waiting for us in our room.
We had a beautiful street view of downtown Portland through the large window that spanned the length of the room.
The room is small, but we knew that from reading other reviews and were prepared. It was perfect for us, and the bed is very comfortable. The fur throw is a nice addition. And the flat-screen TV is great, too.
The bathroom is really nice. I loved the marble. And the soaps/toiletries were top notch. We also loved lounging in the thick robes that were provided.
The location is great! We walked or took public transit everywhere.
We had happy hour outside at their restaurant, Nel Centro. Get there early!
And on Saturday night we listened to live jazz there.
We enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel lounge/sitting area, too.
Overall, this is definately a great place for couples. Not sure if it'd be great for a family where individuals need privacy, because of the sliding door that's either hiding the closet or the bathroom.
This is a wonderful, upbeat, clean, urban getaway!

I truly enjoyed my two night stay at Hotel Modera. At this hotel, high quality rooms and a friendly helpful staff come with an extremely reasonable price tag. It was easy to take public transportation to the hotel and once I was there I could walk to many of the places I wanted to go. I didn't get a chance to eat in the restaurant, but the outdoor lounge area was a nice mix of peaceful and social with modern fire pits to keep you warm when the sun went down. I will definitely stay here again.

We travelled to Portland to visit family over Memorial Day weekend, and got really good rates at Hotel Modera. We loved it! It had a rather european feel about it, was located close to public transportation (we either took public transportation or walked from here), and was a lovely place to stay. Our room was very nice, with a down comforter, faux fur throw, bathrobes, and a city view. We slept wonderfully each night. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here again. My only complaint? I wish we had more time to sit by the outdoor fire pits and enjoy a cocktail!

Great little hotel . We loved the room, the service and everything about it. We found it to be a very good location. Easy walk to the bus lines.

Stayed with my wife recently for four nights. This hotel met all of our needs: relatively central location, safe, quiet rooms, clean, top notch service. Portland is a very walkable city, but the hotel is situated along a streetcar route (that is free in town). The staff could not be more friendly, and they really aimed to please. The only weakness is that much of the staff was young, and many seemed to be from other places. As a result, while they offered to help with directions/suggestions, their knowledge was somewhat light. There's a popular bar/restaurant scene on the first level. We had a room one floor above the bar, and couldn't hear anything.

The wifi is free and pretty fast in the rooms. Room size is decent, not too big. The rooms have refrigerators, so we grabbed some yogurt and fruit from a Safeway nearby for breakfast. Our AAA price was good (varied from $116-$125 per night). I wish they had self-park that was less expensive (valet only, $20/night). If the price is competitive, don't hesitate to stay here.
