This our third time back to Modera. Took my son back to start his third year at the University of Portland on the Bluff, a great school! This time it was family outing totaling six plus my son and his girlfriend. I put my wife and parents on the AMTRAK, which they loved, filled the van and we drove down three hours from Seattle. We had three rooms at the Modera; one King suite and two interconnecting rooms with a King and two Queens. Rooms, service and restaurant were great. You can go on their website and see pictures of the rooms. They are comfortable, particularly the beds. We had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant, Nel Centro. Wow, the food is great. But what was really good and unique to me was the Roasted Beet Salad with Warm Ricotta, Orange & Hazelnuts. It is so fresh. If you like beets you will love this. If you don't think you like beets. You will probably find a new love for it. I also had the Cured Albacore Tuna Carpaccio with Lemon & Sea Salt. It melts in your month. I am a fan of a dish called Poisson Cru, in Tahiti, so I'm always checking out fish marinated in lemon juice type dishes: Delicious but sparse. I could eat this all day. Ok. Check the menu on line. Breakfast was great and reasonably priced also. You wouldn't expect a restaurant this good in a hotel. Also, again I found it wonderfully convenient to walk around Portland from the Modera. It is not as hilly as Seattle, which is a benefit. The Modera is right on the Max light rail and bus line. The Modera is about 5 blocks west of the waterfront park, seven blocks south of Pioneer Place Mall, and 19 blocks south of the train station, which also is also adjacent to the Max rail. I look forward to going back on the train and moving around just using transit sometime. We walked down to the waterfront and rented a surrey, which is canopy covered multi-seated bicycle and rode that around the river. Weather was great. We walked down to check out the renowned Voodoo donuts and observed the line halfway around the block. I poked my head in, it's barley closet of a space. Alright, as you can see I'm really high on Portland and the Modera. Hope this is helpful, hope you visit Portland soon and hope you are not disappointed. Enjoy.
