Bottom Line

Hotel Modera is an attractive, upscale hotel in downtown Portland. It doesn't have a stuffy feel that some iconic hotels do: Instead, everything feels modern and casual, from the streamlined lobby -- with local art, funky furniture, and a marble-and-wood front desk -- to the 174 rooms, updated with iPod docks, Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs. 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. There is no spa or fitness center (although free passes to a nearby gym are available), but there is a tasty on-site restaurant with a renowned local chef. It's not as centrally located as other downtown hotels, but it's convenient for those visiting Portland State University.
