Moda Center Hotels
Plan Your Trip
Moda Center is on the east bank of the Willamette River, across the water from downtown Portland. It’s served by the MAX (light rail) line, which means you don’t actually have to stay right next to the venue. If you want to be right on top of things, though, there are several hotels very close by.
You’ll be going to the Rose Quarter, more specifically to One Center Court, Portland, OR 97227. These four hotels are the closest to Moda Center, all within a five minutes walk.
The Crowne Plaza
This highly rated upscale hotel is the closest to Moda Center, at 0.2 miles. It’s a 3-star hotel with easy access from I-5 and a free airport shuttle. There are 241 rooms on nine floors, with free WiFi, indoor swimming pool and fitness room. You’ll have a bar, restaurant and room service, but you’ll pay extra for parking. Current prices start at $150.
The Hyatt Regency
The next closest at 0.3 miles is the 4-star Hyatt Regency. It’s about the same price as the Crowne Plaza, but more upmarket and highly regarded. It’s got 600 rooms and suites on 14 floors, with an exercise room but no swimming pool. Free WiFi is available, plus a restaurant, bar and room service. Valet parking only is provided, but you can bring your dog.
Shilo Inns, Rose Garden
If you’re looking for something a bit cheaper, this 2-star wheelchair accessible hotel is on the next block from the Crowne Plaza. It’s friendly to pets and children, and under $100, but you’ll pay extra for parking and there’s no restaurant or bar.
Quality Inn, Convention Center
This midscale franchise hotel is average for the price, which is around $120. It’s just 0.3 miles from Moda Center and offers 79 rooms and suites on two floors. There’s an elevator and an indoor swimming pool, and parking is modestly priced. You’ll get free WiFi here and a free continental breakfast.
When you visit Moda Center you’ll find plenty of appetizing food inside, but it can be pricey. You can cross the river to Chinatown, but you’ll also see good eateries close to the arena.
On the Rose Quarter campus itself you can drop into Dr. Jack’s for bar snacks. Along with Portland’s famed craft beers, there’s a selection of sandwiches, salads, nachos and flatbreads. It’s reasonably priced and just a skip to Moda Center. Not far away to the east you’ll also find Burgerville.
The Boxwood Cafe at the Crowne Plaza hotel is a good drop-in restaurant for Pacific north-west comfort food. Its prices are mid-range for a small but varied menu that includes steaks, fish and chips, breakfast items, etc. You can get gluten-free, but it’s not great for vegetarians. Vegans will have to travel a bit further afield, but there are plenty of options out there.
You can take a boat trip along the Willamette River to view the many bridges, or stroll the Tom McCall Waterfront Park to see historical monuments and public art.
Towards the Old Town and traveling west along Burnside Road, you’ll come to Arlington Heights. Here you’ll find the Portland Japanese Garden, Oregon Zoo, Hoyt Arboretum and Washington Park.
