Great boutique hotel in Portland!

We stayed at the Hotel Zags for a few nights while visiting Portland. The staff was super welcoming and helpful. Cara at the front desk gave us great hiking recommendations that were the highlight of our stay. Highly recommend!

Conveniently located to Keller Auditorium

Like this hotel for our trips into the city to see the Broadway series plays. Great restaurant and bar for both pre-show dinner and after show drinks. The rooms are comfortable, only draw back is the beds are a little hard and the AC/heat system is loud so take ear plugs. Staff are polite and welcoming and we continue to go back.

Exceptional customer service!

I booked through Trip Advisor for our Portland weekend away, and couldn’t be happier with my choice to stay here. I had to call several times to ask questions, and each time Edwin took care of my requests. We ended up bringing our dogs at the last minute and were very pleasantly surprised at their pet friendly policy-only $65 for your entire stay! Most hotels charge per night and per pet. We will definitively stay here again the next time we’re in Portland. I have already recommended this hotel to my friends and family.
