“Great hotel”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

I stayed at Modera with 15 friends last weekend for my bachelor party and things couldn't have gone better. Staff was very friendly and helpful even though we were belligerent and coming in at all hours of the night. Location was good and hotel was modern and clean. We never ate at the restaurant but did drink at the bar and it was very nice. Any hotel that will put up with us is 5 stars in my book.

I stayed here on business for a little over a week. It was very nice. The rooms are not huge, but plenty of space for just me. The decor is very modern, and the staff was very friendly. The bar downstairs, especially the patio, is a great place to grab a drink and unwind. The only thing to keep in mind is that there isn't a place to do laundry close by. So if you are staying for over a week, either bring enough clothes or stay somewhere else. I would definitely stay here again.

The staff was incredibly helpful and kind especially Brennon from front desk. Easy to walk to most every in downtown Portland from this location. Clean, modern, sleek atmosphere. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Portland.

Super fast checkin/checkout, clean lines / modern (outdoor fireplace), suites are large and super comfortable, with floor to ceiling windows, very quiet.

No pool or spa but access to 24hour fitness

This very comfortable hotel is located in a very convenient part of downtown Portland. There are excellent restaurants in the neighborhood and the transportation system is easy to use for getting around. The rooms are somewhat compact, but they are comfortable and have all the necessary accoutrements, including locally ground coffee. The establishment is apparently known by the regional insiders in the industry as a top-notch hotel.

Great hotel in downtown Portland for exactly the right price. The rooms were upscale and comfortable. The restaurant attached to the hotel lobby was always filled and had a great happy hour. The concierge always pointed us in the right direction, some of the best places to bar hop were a taxi cab away though. They have an agreement with the nearby 24 hour fitness(I think that is what the gym was called)...free access, that more than made up for the fact that they didn't have one of their own. The only negative (and I'm being really nitpicky) is the the bathroom door never closed completely (design issue).

I loved my first trip to Portland! The people are helpful, friendly, and cheerful. This was true for the hotel staff too. You can take the light rail directly from the airport to the hotel. (The stop is 2 blocks from the hotel. Go past the hotel, so you are rolling your suitcase downhill.). The boutique hotel is modern and well kept. There is a security feature to access the elevators, 24 hr staff, and valet parking. The location is ideal. You are walking distance to museums, shopping, the Pearl District, etc., or you can just hop on and off the light rail. There is a Safeway just four blocks up from the hotel to pick up those forgotten items.
The reason they didn't get a 5 is noise. You can hear the light rail, the diners sitting on the patio, the music from the restaurant, and other hotel guests' doors closing. It wasn't a big deal for me since I live in a major city with neighbors who slam doors. It is nice to have a heads up though if you are super sensitive.

Room Tip: Stay on the 5th St. side if you don't want to hear the diners. Their ice is prepackaged, so you...
