Very good 8.0
Excellent, but pricey boutique hotel.

Exceptional 10.0
Perfect hotel for a short stay
This was a really great find. Very affordable, but comfortable and had a fun lobby with great art, and a super fun hidden back room with all kinds of games to play with kids and friends. The attached Italian restaurant is delicious, with excellent service. Will definitely be our new go to hotel for Portland.

Great place to stay
The stay was great and too far from the Convention Center.
Tanisha, us1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Zags a great spot.
Restaurant is legitimately one of the best hotel-restaurants I’ve been to in all my travels. Rooms and staff were good. Area is otherwise good. the crown jewel is definitely exceptional Italian-French riveira cuisine

January 2020 Stay
I stayed at the hotel for business. The hotel was clean and the location was good. I did not rate the hotel high because of their service and not having all the amenities listed on their website. The front staff was friendly but were not easily available. I would have to make multiple phone calls to speak to someone. There was no concierge so depending on the front staff some would be helpful but most weren’t regarding information on the city. We didn’t get housekeeping for two days and when I called the reaction from the front was not concerned despite me vocalizing my irritation. When the room was cleaned bathroom supplies like shampoo, soap, toilet paper were not restocked and I had to call for them. The business center consisted of two Mac desktops in the hallway on the way to the bathroom instead of a room. Also there should be one Mac and one PC computer, a printer.

Hotel slipping
This has been my hotel of choice in Portland for years, but it's slipping. Shower not great. Service so-so. Got quite annoyed when they tried to slap on a mandatory $27 "amenities charge" for use of gym, wifi, and mini bar. You buy a room for a price and it shouldn't change when you show up at the property. Also, these are standard inclusions with most nice hotels. They did waive the fee (though the amenities were still excluded) but only after I insisted.

New Management Still Working Out Snags
I loved this place when it was the Modera. The facility itself is very nice, great location and the restaurant, Nel Centro, is fantastic. However, they messed up the date of my reservation, counted it as "missed" and made me pay again. They did give me a good rate of $125 which came with free parking and a bottle of wine, which was great but overall paying twice for the reservation was frustrating. Then, the elevator wasn't working, my room key also didn't work, no one was working at valet for the car, nothing huge but the combination of all of these things was a bit headache-inducing. I am sure they are just getting centered under the new management and hopefully it will be smooth sailing soon...
