Hotel Modera

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel, excellent staff they tried to be accommodating and supportive. Very small room with a view of a tarp on a section of a living rooftop made for an unsightly view.

Good downtown location convenient to farmer's market and public transportation. Walled garden great for relaxing. Restaurant with reasonable prices, good food and very nice ambiance. The patio is great!

Staff was very responsive. Got hypoallergenic bedding quickly. Had vehicle ready at 4:45 am (for eclipse trip). Gave good directions. Always had a cheerful hello Room was clean and comfortable but a little small. No views.

Hotel is adequate. Check in was an awful experience which took over a half hour with no apology - computer and/or staff knowledge problems. Tried to charge us double what we had reserved. In general staff were unimpressive, unhelpful. Room was ok but horribly noisy - awful air conditioning system or else very loud street/truck noises. Nowhere to sit and read. No bathroom door (sliding door which either covers the closet OR barely closes the bathroom - bizarre. Very bad shower. Hotel corridors are narrow, dark, dirty. There was debris on the carpet always. Hotel cart with room supplies left in the corridor all the time - blocking egress. No business center - nowhere to work. Very limited internet. Restaurant is excellent. Patio is lovely. Access to local streetcar, art museum, historical society was great. Access to shopping etc is a bit of a hike.

Great city hotel, close to everything great about Portland.

Nice place to stay , easy access to downtown Portland

Great location for fine dining, night life and activities. Just a few blocks from Portland State University and the Willamette River. The hotel has a friendly staff and the rooms were modern and clean.

Great location! Very nice and modern hotel. Would recommend to anyone Staying in the area

Stay was good. Bathtub needed to be replaced and they didn't stock soap before we got into the room

Great central location - friendly staff for sure - nice comfortable beds

We arrived two hours before check in but were able to take advantage of valet parking. The staff offered and stored our bags so we didn't have to go haul them later. From there we left on foot to downtown, just a 15 min walk. Staff warned us of chance of rain and lent us an umbrella which I'm still extremely thankful for, it saved us! Will be staying here next time.

Very nice but room a little stuffy - could use better circulation. Maybe our fault for not running the ac/heater properly.

Our room was a little loud due to street noise but otherwise fun hotel with good location.

The Modera is very comfortable, with rooms that go beyond the average hotel room in terms of decoration. Furnishings are like those of any normal room, however, and sometimes a bit worn.

This motel is a fully remodeled old Days Inn (or something like that).. beds are comfortable, decor is top notch, and staff are ready and willing to make your stay great. The only complaint we had was that the rooms were quite small.

So convenient for the business we were in town for. Clean, modern, boutique feel.

The hotel was very nice. They brought me a bottle of complimentary wine and left a personalized note for me. They helped with all needs.

It was good overall, but there is still room to improve the amenities. Front desk and guest service are excellent.

I was very pleased with my stay at Hotel Modera and even more thrilled with the city. The hotel was cozy, clean, central and accommodating. The staff was always so pleasant to interact with! The room was just what I needed for myself and a decent size. I felt at home and slept well (which rarely happens and is hard for me to do when it's not my own bed). The Nel Centro cafe inside of the hotel was pretty delicious and the service was good. I loved being downtown and having the luxury of being able to walk around everywhere. EVERYTHING is pretty much walking distance within this area. Overall a fantastic experience with my hotel stay AND the city!

We were there two weekends ago during a cold spell. Our room was freezing upon entering. We turned up the temperature and the fan but it felt like the AC was blowing. When we called the front desk, the hotel repair person came up and brought us a space heater. It appeared that all the guests had the heat on and the hotel vent/heating system was not able to handle the demand. The hotel staff ensure us the room will heat up soon by the space heater. We asked for a 2nd space heater. I could not walk barefeet as the carpeted floor was simply too cold. Both my husband (who normally runs hot) and I slept fully clothed (I kept my jacket on) and even used the robe out of the closet over me for more layer. I slept with the space heater as close as possible on the nightstand next to me. The room never warmed up even with 2 space heaters. The room was still cold in the morning. I have never experienced such a thing. How does a hotel stay in business without a functioning heating system? We had the room for 2 nights but checked out early in the morning. The only reason we stayed the first night was because we arrived at 10 pm after a full day on the road and we were too tired and it was too late to try to get another hotel at that time.
