“Elegant, Comfortable Modernity”
Reviewed March 13, 2009

I stayed here while visiting Portland to look at graduate school and was wowed at every turn. Fabulous decor!!! Ultra comfy beds with supple fake fur throws! Free wireless! Outdoor fire pits! Deliciously-scented amenity kit. Great central location. Regional wine tastings. Professional yet hip, helpful staff. The only glitch: the breakfast room-turned-conference room feels a little too conference room, and it would benefit from feeling more like a cafe. Anyway, Loved it! Though I was here on business, I would just as readily come for a romantic weekend.

Great location for attending events at the Keller Auditorium. Great price, clean rooms, comfy beds. Our room overlooked the interior garden, and we had no problem with noise. We had no problem finding street parking, which saved some money. Free Continental breakfast included.

Like a mid-century modern bomb exploded in downtown Portland, but in a good way. The front desk and valets are friendly and very helpful when you need info about the area. Plus, this place is a gadget lover's wet dream: free wifi (so your fantasy football team won't suffer while you're on vacay - BRING YOUR LAPTOP!), ihome clock radio/ipod dock, and a LCD TV with HD. yes, my male friends, you can watch football in HD all day sunday and finish the night with Sunday Night Football, True Blood, and Entourage -- all in high definition. you'll prbably get into a fight with your significant other, though. Spotless room and bathroom with comfy beds. there's a few good restaurants around the neighborhood and you get free access to the 24hour fitness down the street. All this for $130 a night! parking is $27 a night. ouch.

My boyfriend and I booked our stay for Valentine's day a month in advance and received the best price quote upon paying in advance. Hotel Modera hosts an array of vintagesque decor and mid-modern/contemporary architecture. It boasts warms earthy colors and rich lush fabrics from the marble in the bathrooms to the faux fur throws and lavish drapes in the bedroom. We were incredibly pleased with the staff's friendliness, particularly Carly. Thank you for your wonderful recommendations to eat. We look forward to coming back again and trying the new restuarant when it opens.

My fiance booked a night at The Modera for Valentine's Day. Though we live in Portland, our home is a long way from downtown & he knew I would love the location of The Modera: close to everything and very luxurious. The beds & linens are spectacular, the pillows are great! The staff and service was excellent and, best of all, the hotel rooms were very quiet. We found the staff to be very helpful and professional. Best of all, the style is clean and modern and it's in a beautiful building, too. The restaurant was not open when we were there, but it is under construction and supposed to be really awesome.

The service is fantastic starting with the valet. The hotel lobby and all the rooms are squeaky clean. The rooms Nicely decorated with flat panel tv's, the hallways and lobby have an extensive photography collection, and the outside fire pit is a great touch. This is an upscale hotel with a personal touch.

  • Liked — the image of the hotel and how clean it is.
  • Disliked — no problems at this hotel.
