Staying at a hotel without leaving town combines the feeling of a vacation with the ability to rush home and break up shrub-shrouded keggers thrown by teenage garden gnomes. Keep tabs on rambunctious statuary with today’s Groupon: for $135, you get a one-night stay in a Premier Garden King room, including late checkout and an array of extras, at Hotel Modera in downtown Portland (a $270 total value).
The intimate Hotel Modera combines cozy quarters with an accommodating staff and modern amenities. Entrust your four-wheeled steed to the hotel's valet before ascending to your room, where a bottle of pinot noir and a cache of hazelnuts will help you leave the day's Pig Latin shouting matches behind. The Premier Garden King room features a pillow-topped king-sized bed, an LCD TV with HD channels, and a view of Hotel Modera’s private courtyard, in which fire pits act as the centers of miniature solar systems. A host of complimentary amenities includes health-club passes, free WiFi, and newspaper delivery, ensuring guests are nicely toned and suitably informed before striking up small talk in the hotel’s stylish restaurant. Today's deal includes a 2 p.m. checkout, leaving guests plenty of time to explore downtown or build in-room igloos out of bedding and bath supplies.
Numerous publications have featured Hotel Modera, including Fodors, The Oregonian, and Via magazine. More than 280 TripAdvisors rank it 5th out of 125 hotels in Portland and give it an average of 4.5 owl eyes. Yelpers give it a four-star average:
- Comfort isn’t sacrificed for style. In your room you’ll find faux-fur throws on the bed, a spalike bathroom with toiletries in a blood orange scent, and bells and whistles such as an iPod dock, flat-screen TV, and free wireless. – Leah Hennen, Via
- The courtyard’s fire pits (although somewhat subdued by an enthusiastic dose of Oregon’s famed “liquid sunshine” during my visit), array of tables, chairs, high stools, and benches, and unique wall of local plants, make this my top choice for hotel outdoor space in Portland. It’s perfect for coffee on a sunny day and a sexy spot to spend an evening. – Aefa Mulholland, Out magazine
