This was my first time staying here and I was pleased with the accommodations and service. The hotel is located in a great area with everything walking distance. The staff was always friendly, helpful and always cheerful. The rooms are spacious and up to date with today's technology. Overall this is a great hotel when in the area

The staff was more than helpful. The hotel was clean and very modern in style. We are seniors and were traveling to the wine country to do a little sight seeing and tasting. It was a great starting place for both. We would definitely recommend it . The food in the restaurant was also quite good.

This place was super! Staff were unbelievable! Very friendly, very helpful, with great sense of humour thrown in.

The hotel itself is very clean, well laid out, rooms appointed nicely.

Would most definetly, and in fact, in the process of staying there again.

I visit Portland often so I've tried several of the downtown boutique hotels. My last visit was my second time at the Hotel Moderna. Overall, the hotel is stunning. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated, the open spaces are lovely, and the garden/courtyard area is beyond stunning -- even in the rain. The staff is always friendly and approachable and when the bf realized he forgot to pack a toothbrush, the staff gave him one. While there's not much around for food/drink, the hotel bar serves great drinks and I was surprised to witness a steady stream of dinners coming to the restaurant. Overall a great place and will continue to earn my business.

PS: The only downside was the herd of unsupervised children in the room next to ours. I'm assuming their parents collected all their offspring and put them into one room, then went out for the night. While their high pitched yelps did nothing to cultivate romance in our room, the kids did most quiet down when I knocked on their door. PARENTS: When you leave your kids alone in a hotel room, please remind them to use their INSIDE voices. Your neighbors will be exceedingly grateful.

Room Tip: Get a garden view room on an upper floor (4th or 5th). And pray that the room next to yours isn'...

Dear Josefiend,

Thank you for choosing Hotel Modera for your getaway destination in Portland. It is always a pleasure knowing that we’ve impressed someone enough to seem them time and again. I’m happy to hear that you had pleasant interactions with staff, found your room to be spacious and well appointed, and the courtyard and garden area to be lovely.

I would like to recommend a Premier Garden King for your next visit. This room type overlooks the garden, courtyard, and fire pits. Looking down at the view anytime of day is relaxing, and the warm glow from the fires in the evening might help enhance the romance for you and your boyfriend.

I have stayed at the Modera several times when I come in from Eugene 110 miles away to do business. The front desk is very helpful and attentive, the location is good, the rooms are nicely done, modern, neat, windows open, bed is very good. We have a discount so the value is very good. I will return.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet room if you want it, but as you get further from the elevator you get closer to a lou...

This was my first visit to Portland for a business trip. This hotel was suggested by my customer who had a special rate so we booked here. The pictures online look much more impressive than the actual hotel itself so kudos to the photographer and web designer. I felt like it was basically an old hotel that had some aesthetic remodeling done, but was really not overly impressive for what their rack rate is. The staff was very friendly and helpful and there is some nice outdoor space to enjoy. There was a nice little perk of having a complementary mini bottle of wine in the room which was heaven sent after a long day of travel and the bed was very comfortable. Also complementary wifi. The walls are extremely think and I heard every cough from my neighbor. There is a restaurant that is independently owned attached to the hotel that has a great atmosphere. I only ate breakfast there, but it was good. Wait staff was very pleasant and attentive. Overall it was a good stay, but I think a bit overpriced for its value. I would not pay full price for a room there. Think slightly fancier Hampton Inn.

Dear Jerseygirl10577,

Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you found your bed comfortable, had a great interaction with staff, and enjoyed the onsite restaurant Nel Centro. I’m also happy to hear that the wine amenity helped take the edge off after a long day of travel!

Stay tuned for our new website to be launched later this month. I think it will do a great job showing the real feel and experience of Hotel Modera.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant and bar were nice - good food, good happy hour. It was very busy though and we couldn't always find seating for happy hour. The last night we sat outside and the service was very slow. The rooms are nice. I was on 5th floor - a little noisy - there was an outside fan or something that was going off and on all night.
