Nice hip redo of an older hotel.

It may have once been something low rent, but the property is very nice and modern. Comfortable room, hip lobby, valet parking. Good location. Just a short stroll to everything including the famous Portland farmers market.

Clean Boutique in Downtown

Very clean and friendly hotel located on the southern end of Downtown Portland. Easy walking distance to attractions downtown. Small but modern rooms with nice amenities. Well reviewed restaurant and outdoor patio located on the main floor make this hotel very inviting. Parking is valet only and a bit pricey but you can park across the street in a secured lot for $10/day.

Great quick atop

My friend and I drove through Portland to stop for one night on a long road trip. Check in and out went extremely smooth, the restaurant located in the hotel was incredible and the room was clean and comfortable. We will definitely be back if driving through Portland again.

Had a great time in Portland at the Modera. The patio is beyond stellar, and the rooms are fantastic. We stayed a few nights after driving to the coast and the hotel was the perfect getaway. Would highly recommend.

Conference in Downtown Portland

This hotel was very close to the conference location, and saved me a car rental so I could be near everything. It also had everything I needed in a hotel room so I could wake up and be ready to present at the conference in comfort.
