Luxurious hotel brings upscale affluence to downtown Portland

The sleek 174 rooms and suites feature free Wi-Fi, 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.

Great Location, Great Ambience

This hotel is great for any type of traveller. It is very upmarket. The outdoor area has several firepits and tables to enjoy drinks in the evening and a very nice restaraunt. The location is central and you can walk to shopping, and eateries nearby. However, if you are a weary travellor or have been in meeting all day, you do not need to leave the hotel. It was extremely clean, modern and the beds were comfortable. It was a great experience.

If you like Japanese food, the restaraunt Shigezo is a few blocks away. They have a happy hour where you can stuff yourself on sushi and wine for very little money!

Very nice hotel

The rooms in the hotel were very nice, and I enjoyed the free wireless internet. Valet parking was very quick and easy to deal with. The restaurant in the hotel was also very good (a bit expensive, but good). There isn't anything that I didn't like about the place.

Superb Hotel

This was perhaps the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms were clean, well-kept, the service was perfect. It was just a very nice place to "come home" to while I was in Portland. I would recommend it highly to anyone who was coming to visit this city.

Great place to stay in Portland

Really great stay at this hotel. The decor and vibe is great. Makes you feel like you're on a vacation just by entering the hotel. Staff was always friendly and helpful. Room was very cute with nice sized flat screen TV, very cool bathroom and fixtures, comfy sheets. My boyfriend and I were visiting Portland for the first time this holiday weekend mainly to explore, relax, and shop. Marina Fish House floating restaurant was a must. Great food. Weather was excellent which topped off a nice overnight trip.

Wonderful Portland hotel

Nice boutique hotel, we had no problems getting our car out of the valet parking, it was very prompt. We ate lunch at the hotel restaurant and it was excellent. Good bed with down pillows and comforter, flat screen TV, bathroom was well equipped and pleasant. The room had a safe and bathrobes. Front desk service very attentive. Central location in downtown Portland, which is a marvelous place. Fabulous value.
