Hotel Modera
Ranked #28 of 144 Hotels in Portland
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 November 2013

I haven't been to any other hotel in Portland but Priceline lists Hotel Modera as ranked 1. It's a pretty average hotel to be honest. Everything you would expect a hotel to be: clean, friendly staff, good location, average/smallish size rooms.

CONS

1) The location isn't super central downtown. If you're doing some shopping I suggest you stay at the Hyatt or Niles which is right by the malls and shops.
2) The pool isn't at the hotel but uses a fitness centre's facilities that is across the street.

PROS

1) It's cheaper that most the other hotels in Portland.
2) Quiet

My husband and I spent 5 wonderful days at the Modera hotel. We could not find a single thing that we did not like: the room was comfortable and spotless, the staff was nice, professional and always ready to assist, the restaurant menu good and with healthy choices (the breakfast waiters particularly well mannered), and the few computers at disposal in the lobby, besides the wifi, were a nice addition (we could easily print our boarding passes the night before leaving). What a pity that we were too busy in Portland and we could not take advantage of the daily passes to access the Gym (open 24/7)!

We had a great time at Hotel Modera. The room was lovely, the staff excellent, the restaurant tasty, the beds cozy and the price was right! The outside patio is a nice place to sit outside and drink wine in the evening. We would definitely stay here again.

Our Montana friends had met us at the Modera several times, and we had really enjoyed the experience. But things had changed there. It was obvious to us that their focus was now the business singles market. The rooms are quite small with barely room for a desk and one chair. The small conference rooms that the four of us had used to play cards in the evening were no longer available and the people at the desk were not helpful at all as far as letting us use one of the unused larger conference rooms. The food at the restaurant was not nearly as good as it had been in the past, and the fee for parking was a ridiculous $30 per night.

Dear Milasmom,

Thank you for staying with us again on your recent trip to Portland. It is great to hear that Hotel Modera has impressed you enough in the past for us to have been your normal rendezvous location multiple times with friends. While we do not normally allow the use of our private meeting space complimentary, and without prior arrangement with our Catering Manager, I am happy to hear we were able to accommodate your card games during prior stays. I would like to encourage you to reserve one of our Premier Modera Suites next time you are in Portland. Not only are our suites spacious, they each have a living area which includes a table that can comfortably host a card game with friends as well.

Best Regards,
Andrew Maffei
General Manager

I love boutique hotels...it's overall a much better experience, thats precisely it, you actually get an experience.
It started with Hannah who answered the myriad of questions I threw at her over the phone, she made my booking effortless.
When I arrived the valet staff was courteous and on top of it. Next Front Desk, Mr. Reed was on point, and situated me in a perfect room. I HIGHLY recommend getting a suite. Well worth it.

Lastly Dane was helpful as I checked out, and even doubled as a concierge as I grilled him with questions regarding shopping & an auto detailing shop in the area.
I'll be back.

We visited Portland for the first time and wanted to make sure we got an authentic visit because we are considering moving to the city. The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful as we tried to experience different types of food and various things to do during the day. Brennon and JD were also able to give us a little insight into the life of a Portlandian, which really helped us decide to visit again. Hotel Modera will see us again soon.

We stayed the weekend for the Portland Marathon and tried this hotel because others were full. Glad we did. The rooms are nicer than any big chain hotel. The concierge was amazing and the onsite restaurant was delicious for lunch after the race. Fantastic downtown location. In the two queen bed suite I thought the beds were a little smaller than queen but overall we were so impressed and thankful we found Hotel Modera.
