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.

A Gem!

Parking was valet at $30 a night w/in n out. That's the norm. Hotel was older design (70's?) but looked modern and clean inside. Greeted with efficient and friendly staff. Check in was a breeze. No gym in hotel but they give free passes to the 24Hour Fitness that is in corner of the building. Good open room plan for the average size. Very inviting bed (could have been a bit more comfortable) and great sized bathroom. Room was a bit dark but not depressing. Free wifi.Very good bar/restaurant with additional outdoor seating that has the gas fire pits. Love them! Keeps you warm on a cool Portland night.

Good choice for Arts District

Very handy to the performing arts center and to the art museum. Room was smallish, with just one bedside table/light, one drawer, no convenient place to recharge devices. Furniture and linens were above average in quality. Climate control didn't -- we couldn't cool the room below 73.

Great location, great amenities

This place has a very convenient location to anything in the city. The room was very clean and the decor and stuff was very nice. A few caveats: The AC/Heater fan is really LOUD. They charge $27 a night for valut parking... however, there is lots of street parking nearby (metered 8AM-6PM Mon-Sat, 1-6PM Sun) which if you leave early in the morning is pretty straight forward (you can actually prepay for parking starting at 6AM as well).

Trendy but friendly

Professional service from check in to check out. The bar area is elegant and looks out over a fire-pit courtyard with outdoor tables and service. We chose from the Happy Hour Menu and the snacks were good, tastefully served and moderately priced. The indoor restaurant, however, has tables arranged in tram-lines and appears uninviting. Aside from this, the only mild criticism we had was the closet/ bathroom arrangement. The two shared a rather heavy door. Something has to give, though, in the renovation of a small room.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Higgins Restaurant, a block away provides a limited but interesting menu. The tables are carefully arranged and well separated and the service impeccable. Bit on the pricey side, but the place was full nevertheless. Worth a try.

Park down the street for $6 a day instead of $27 a day (not including tip) on the same street.

Hotel Modera is an excellent location for adventure

We didn't want to have to drive around downtown Portland in holiday traffic and were very pleased with the location of the Modera in the University district. The hotel staff were friendly and very helpful in guiding us to the museums, public transportation and restaurants. Powell's bookstore was only a mile walk and we could hop free buses and the MAX when we tired ourselves out. The hotel was very clean, secure and comfortable. The marble shower was wonderfully relaxing after a day of adventures. We would definitately stay there again. Only limitation was the closet space was pretty small and there was no fan for the bath, but they had treated the mirrors to not steam up.Overall, it is one of the nicest places we've stayed at in Portland for a reasonable price.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take advantage of free public transport options in the downtown area to avoid traffic and parking hassles, especially on holidays. Free bus lines take you everywhere. Wish Seattle was as visitor friendly.
