“This hotel has NO air conditioning!”
Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

This is a nice hotel in a good location, especially for PSU families. The restaurant is good, the staff is friendly. But this is my second stay here. Both visits were when the weather in Portland was in the 70s or 80s. The room never cooled off. The staff always had the same excuse--"there's something wrong today. Best to turn the system off." After two nights, it was obvious that the "AC" was nothing more than a fan blowing in outside air. The hallways were cooler as was the lobby. Obviously, the owners are banking on PDX weather for cooling. I felt really ripped off.

Stayed May 2014

HBOnPablo,

Thank you for the repeat business! I am pleased you found our proximity to PSU to be favorable. There is no other four star hotel that is closer to Portland State. I’m also happy to hear that both of your visits to Portland were during times of beautiful and warm weather! We don’t have many this time of year, but we appreciate all the warm weather and sunshine we receive!


Best Regards,

Andrew Maffei

I adore Hotel Modera and its smart, stylish, charming, friendly staff. I've stayed there three times in the past two years and would rate it tops of my list anywhere. The rooms are mid-20th century modern with lovely amenities like a fabulous faux fur bed throw, good for cool rainy nights in Portland. The Nel Centro restaurant is wonderful with delicious meals any time of day and a terrific patio for dining under the stars or just a late night rendez vous. On a long weekend in Portland, we ate at some of the city's top restaurants and Nel Centro held its own perfectly. (But don't miss St. Jack in NW Portland!) Location is wonderful too, convenient for walking to the Portland Art Museum, taking bus or trolley to Pearl District, or catching a TriMax to the airport.

I stay at Hotel Modera every time I visit Portland and have found it to be consistently enjoyable and comfortable. I especially love the restaurant and the friendly and professional environment and the location is very good for walking around and exploring the city and also for easy access to the major highways in and out of the city.

Great service, super clean rooms, one of the best night's sleep I have had in years and a very knowledgeable and friendly concierge in Jonny. A 12 minute walk from Burnside but far enough away to not be in the thick of it all. Outdoor fire pits are a nice touch.

Stayed 2 nights in this terrific hotel last weekend. The room was lovely (a garden view king) and the hotel staff was helpful,charming and welcoming. This is a great location for exploring Portland on foot and is also very close to the metro.

We were wanting a hotel downtown that had a modern vibe, Hotel Modera nailed it. I wouldn't want to stay any other place. The restaurant/bar was a great experience. Food was excellent for the price and service was stellar! We can't wait to come back. Thanks for a great stay!

We had a great time at hotel Modera. The staff was helpful and friendly. Our room looked over the garden and was really beautiful. We stopped by the restaurant after dinner and had a cocktail and amazing dessert that I am still thinking about (peach tarte tatin with ginger ice cream).
