Hotel Modera - Portland Oregon

My husband booked the Hotel Modera for my father and I for our weekend get away in Portland.  They advertise themselves as a "Luxury Boutique Hotel in the heart of Downtown Portland" and that is exactly what it is, but at a reasonable price.

 We entered into a lobby with some beautiful original works of art and were greeted by a very friendly approachable consierge/front desk clerk.

He made our reservation at the Chez Joly for us and then we went up to our rooms to freshen up before dinner.

My room was beautifully decorated with a very comfortable looking (and it was) bed with plenty of big thick feather cushions.  I checked out the bathroom.

The bathroom was also tastefully decorated with marble, original art, and I loved the lights in the mirror which were great for putting on make up. There was a large flat screen HD TV with a selection of movies as well as many TV stations. One of the movies available was the Kings Speech which if I hadn't already watched I would have really enjoyed watching in my big white fluffy bed.

On Sunday morning we wanted just toast and coffee as we were hoping to enjoy a decent size lunch from one of the many food carts.  Although they were serving a brunch menu they served us toast with Marionberry (a cross between a blackberry and raspberry originated Oregon Sate University) The toast and the jam were both very good as was the coffee. The waiter gave us some good tips on where to go and we changed our plans based on his recommendations. A good start to the day.

There was a Courtyard which at night had fire pits to sit around and enjoy your drink and a green wall which helped give a wonderfully tranquil atmosphere.

 The rooms were just over $100.00 a night and probably the best value for money that I have ever had in a hotel.  If you are going to Portland you would be crazy not stay here.
