Luxurious hotel brings upscale affluence to downtown Portland
From its minimalist lobby to the custom-designed walnut furniture in the rooms, Hotel Modera provides a luxurious experience in downtown Portland. Previously a Days Inn, the hotel was revamped and is now the epitome of upscale lodging. The sleek 174 rooms and suites feature Wi-Fi (at cost), elegant decor and room amenities that include down bedding and flat-screen high-definition TVs. The Hotel Modera houses the chic restaurant Nel Centro, which features the cuisine of the French and Italian Riviera, such as butternut squash tortelloni with sage butter.
Highlights
  • Private courtyard
  • LCD high-definition TVs
  • Wi-Fi access (for a fee)
  • Complimentary passes to nearby top-notch local gym
Rooms
The upscale rooms of the Hotel Modera are sheer luxury, from the down pillows and comforters to the custom-designed walnut furnishings. The bathrooms feature Italian marble and high-end bath products from Italy. The rooms also include Wi-Fi access (for a fee), high-definition TVs with complimentary premium channels, in-room refrigerators and more.
Dining
Hotel Modera also serves as the home for Nel Centro, an elegant restaurant with Italian marble floors and rich walnut walls that features the cuisine of the Riviera. The wine list boasts bottles from France, Italy and Oregon, and the cocktail menu has many handmade libations.

Great stay at Modera

Our family arrived after a week of camping, a bit dirty and smelly. The staff were super friendly & knowledgeable. The room smelled a bit musty or maybe it was from a smoker... the tv didnt' end up playing the movie our boys wanted but the staff did give us a discount on our parking. Best calamari I've ever had in the restaurant. Thanks Modera

A great home base to explore Portland

Perfectly located. Right on all the major public transit lines and walking distance to all of downtown. The staff couldn't have been more friendly. The hotel decor is chic and the facilities clean. The room was small but had everything one could need. The bed was really comfortable. Doesn't have some of the big hotel amenities but the courtyard is really pleasant and the restaurant is one of the best we ate at in town.

Little sound proof

Modera central location was perfect...everything else was average. Well staffed, clean, modern design. The fire pits are part of Nel CENTRO not the Hotel. The cocktails also very average. Plenty of street parking after hours...and on weekends.

Pre-book car rental. Enterprise a few blocks away will allow you to drop off after hours on streets. Plenty of after hour Parking. We rented two days of our 5 day trip. Zip car also around the corner from hotel.

Very good stay

Went to Portland for a weekend and stayed at Hotel Modera for 2 nights. Great location close to downtown and all the shopping and sights. Staff is really friendly and attentive. Hotel lobby is very modern and nicely designed. There are only 2 elevators for the hotel and one was broken when we arrived. However it was quickly fixed and I never had to wait more than 3 minutes for an elevator. Room was small but clean. Very comfy mattress and pillows. The walls are a bit thin as I could hear everything the neighbors did. In fact, on the first night, we had a neighbor that didn't sleep and was singing and making noise all night. I didn't get any sleep at all. Other than that this is a great hotel and would stay here again.
