10 Best Hotels near Portland's Moda Center

There are so many hotels available in Portland, Oregon it can be confusing knowing which to book. Even narrowing down where to stay by keeping it to one party of town can still be confusing, especially in a city where some of the best hotels in town are not part of well known hotel chains.

10Best is here to help you decide where to stay, because we are local and we know which hotels are hits and misses, specifically when it comes to the lesser known hotels in Portland. There happens to be a lot of lesser known hotels near the Moda Center and we highly recommend you only stay at the ones included on our list.

For example the Kennedy School and the Jupiter Hotel. Both are awesome places to stay that are quite popular and will offer a true Portland experience, but if you are not from the area they could easily be overlooked.

Independent hotels are not the only ones near the Moda Center. We included two of Marriott's properties the Residence Inn and the Courtyard both extremely close and well known hotels.

Portland also has some lovely hotels with upscale options and we have included two of them that are nearby Hotel Lucia and the Crown Plaza. Both hotels offer a solid option for those looking for something a little more plush. 

Filling a huge need in this area and topping our list this year is Hotel Eastlund. The first contemporary, luxury boutique hotel located in downtown Portland’s Eastside neighborhood. 

No matter where you decided to stay we are sure you will enjoy your time in Portland.
