Overview

Modern hotel features an outdoor courtyard and a Living Wall – Portland’s first fully sustainable living piece of art
Daily amenity fee

This property in downtown Portland is about a mile walk away from the popular Pearl District (or a quick ride away on the MAX light rail). With its minimalist design aesthetic and warm color palette, Hotel Modera feels quaint and comfortable. Yet, it's also luxurious with its Tarocco Italian bath products, iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs and turndown service, available upon request. And Modera guests praise the Mediterranean fare at the on-site Nel Centro restaurant and its patio with fire pits, perfect for a little relaxing while sipping wine.

Critic Reviews

Fodor's

READ MORE 

Decorated with local artwork, sleek, contemporary furnishings, and wood-and-marble accents, this boutique property is both upscale and accessible, and offers a location convenient to the Southwest Park Blocks and Portland State University.

The Modera is a sleek and sophisticated 'scene hotel' thoughtfully fashioned from the 1950s-era Portland Motor Lodge.

The Modera bills itself as a boutique, and even though it's not as small as some boutique hotels, it does have that vibe — and it lacks the amenities of a large hotel.
