Hotel Modera

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

Decided to stay downtown after a Blazer game and glad I chose this hotel! Staff went above my expectations to make my stay a great one. Will choose Hotel Modera again when I have more time to explore the area.

Great location , outstanding staff and a terrific room for a fair price . Stayed here many times , my favorite place to stay in Portland ..

Great staff and location. Rooms were comfortable and clean

Great hotel, wonderful staff - I'd stay again and bring friends

Even we stayed only one night at the hotel, me and my husband really enjoyed this hotel. It's super conviniant and walkable to almost any place in Portland. The front desk people were super nice, like anyone else in Portland, and gave us bunch of recommendations for sightseeings in the city.

Pretty much like being at an upscale dormitory. Very expensive for what you get!

Weird split experience here. We (myself and one traveling partner) stayed twice within 1 week. We flew into Portland to travel around Oregon. Stayed 1st 2 nights and 1 day here. Location is fantastic. Downtown Portland is incredibly easy to navigate. Hotel: came in on a late flight, after the end of check-in. Staff was functional and welcoming there. Room was snug and quiet and easy to be comfortable in. Very easy come-and-go. Never checked out food and 'entertaining' options on first floor, looked pricey and aimed at pricier clientele than us. Very easy-on-eye interior. Nice to match up 'in the day' photos with actual Portland sites we took in. After hiking around Oregon, realized we needed a place for a last night stay. Also had a red-eye flying out. My spouse called from out-of-state while I was out hiking about and arranged a weekend night stay at a very fair price below the list price. They also agreed to a 1 hour later than usual checkout. All very cool and appreciated.When we needed to check out for the red-eye, they said they'd be happy to hold on to luggage while we waited for shuttle and checked out the town one last time. Again, very well handled, professional, and a very welcome way to help us manage our trip. Okay, so the one bad thing. When I showed up for the last night stay and signed in, I didn't read any fine print (idiocy of my own) but they charged me a different price than agreed. Spouse gets on phone and their claim 'Well, he signed. Too Bad.' Grrrrrr

It was a great space and the perfect location! Our only complaint is that we could hear what was going on in the adjacent rooms more clearly that I'd have expected. Our neighbors were a bridal party -- lots of women laughing and talking loudly -- who starting to get ready before 6a, so we woke up *much* earlier than we'd planned one morning. I couldn't complain since they were clearly so joyous, but it made for a long day. (Long years of happiness to the couple!) But were were very surprised at how thin the walls were.

this hotel is awesome, walking distance to rose and japanese gardens

Had a fantastic experience at Hotel Modera - great location and loved the decor. Rooms very extremely clean and comfortable. Only complaint was check-in was slow - got there on a Friday night and they only had one person working the front desk. Took us almost 30 minutes to check-in. Other than that I'd highly recommend the hotel and would stay here again!

I come to Portland twice a year and stay here-such a great hotel with fantastic service. Location can't be beat. I'm able to hop on the freeway within 4 blocks or walk to the water front, Pioneer square ect. Love this hotel they offer a work out facility within 2 blocks of the hotel that has good equipment. Staff has great suggestions of places to see, where to eat, (there is a nice restaurant in the hotel) cool outdoor fire pits. Hotel is dog friendly-love this place!

I appreciate hotels that are pet friendly, however flees bites are not fun.

Loved the hotel and weekend in portland. Hotel had a great location and bar and restaurant attached. Great food!!!! Hotel room was clean and nice a bit on the small side. Only complaint was the in room temperature. Our room was hot and the only think the front desk recommended was turning off the air and opening the window. It was still hot at night

I will say this...the staff....extremely kind, nice and helpful but this hipster hotel is just silly. First off....good luck going into your room and figuring out how the little hipster lamps works. truly. I had to get my phone out...turn on the light on it and do investigative work. secondly they want you to use a little hipster ipod type thing to order room service get info.... completely silly. the snacks in the room are IMPOSSIBLE to open. I opened both the cashews and the trail mix with my own pocket knife after attempting to open for almost 10 mins. In the scheme of world tragedies...this is not a big deal.....but when I called down to order room service after the little hipster ipod thingy didn't work....I informed the staff about the lamps and he said...."oh...yeah we hear that all the time" nothing drives me crazier than acknowledging a problem that is consistent yet doing nothing about it.

Hotel is in s nice location; close to transportation and ready to walk around the city. Hotel staff are very friendly and responsive!
