Hotel Modera
Ranked #28 of 144 Hotels in Portland
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 8, 2009

The room was a lot smaller than I expected. Our view was a rooftop with large AC units about 5 feet from our window. The staff were OK, but not overly friendly. I think their desire to be upscale is coming off as pretentious. The room was clean but still felt like a 1970's Day's Inn.

This was my first visit to Portland and the Hotel Modera, a few work colleagues had stayed here last year and highly recommended it, and after stopping here for a week in September i would highly recommend it to anyone. All the services at the Hotel Modera were second to none from room service, bar staff, reception desk etc. The fire pits were great to sit around for a beer and chat after a hard days work knowing that after you were going to get a great nights sleep in one of the most comfortable hotel beds i have ever slept in.
I can't praise the hotel and staff enough, these people are a credit to the Hotel Modera.
Thanks for an excellent weeks stay. Paul (UK)

After having such a wonderful stay at Hotel Modera in October 2008, when returning to Portland on business from England, there is nowhere else we would rather stay. The hotel was fantastic last time, but the addition of the bar and restaraunt just finishes off the whole package. Would definately recommend this hotel to anyone, it's location is central, the staff are so helpfull and always have a smile on their face, the rooms are modern and so clean. If I have the chance to travel to Portland again, the Hotel Modera is where I'll be staying!

I stayed at the Modera a year ago and rated it as excellent and I am very pleased to say that having just spent another week there it is even better. The staff are friendly, rooms are spacious and very clean and super decor everywhere. The addition of a very nice restaurant serving delicious food and drinks either inside or by the fire pits in the garden area is super after a hard day at the office. If you are considering a stay in Portland then don't miss the Modera its excellent +++

We live in Seattle and our son is a Sophomore at the University of Portland. He was sent to the emergency room at Providence Hospital to have his appendix removed. We drove down to Portland and it was convenient and comforting returning to the Modera. The location, rooms, and service are oustanding. It had been a year since our last stay and since then they added the Nel Centro restaurant, which opened in May 2009. The rstaurant was great. The food and service were both excellent. The rooms have flat screen tv's and wireless internet. There's a 24 Hour fitness next door and a Starbucks a block away. The hotel is also adjacent to the Max light rail system. The staff is great. I highly recommend this hotel for both busines and leisure. We'll be back.

This hotel merits a five star rating as a result of overall excellence. The customer service was uniformly superb--from the desk staff, to the bellman to the maids and to the graveyard shift man, who helped me print out my boarding passes and called me a cab at an ungodly hour.

The location is an easy walk to much of downtown and the proximity to the max was convenient. The map we were given upon check in was helpful.

Ate at nel centro--the hotel's restaurant and had a nice meal--with the same level of good customer service as in the hotel. In-room coffee just ok... recommend the adjoining coffee joint --javamama- great coffee and light breakfast there.

Room was clean and extraordinarily comfy--loved the faux fur throw.

Go to the Modera--you will not be disappointed.

I've stayed at Hotel Modera for more than 6months now for my project with TriMet. I think being away from home could have been more difficult for me if Modera's staff weren't warm and accommodating. From the managers down to the front desk to the valet attendants, everybody are always smiling and ready to offer a hand to help.
