Fun place!

This is a 5 story hotel, but it feels intimate. Skip the chain hotels and stay here. The front desk was great, particularly Damien, who was charming and professional. There is an amenity fee, but you get use of the fitness club down the street and some free snacks in your room. Really nice restaurant and outdoor patio area. Everything you need is within walking distance, the hotel is in a nice area. Great value , and a fun place with unique decor.

Great Rooms & Service!

Great hotel and staff! We stayed during the protest weekend (spaced it), however the staff was extremely accommodating, providing both warnings and information regarding the rally. We continued our anniversary weekend and the room exceeded expectations at a reasonable rate. We will be back!


Portland hotels are expensive. I'm in the travel industry, and even I don't want to pay the $300 plus per night rates. I also don't want to stay in a Motel 6. That's why I stay at the Hotel Zags.
It is just a few blocks away from the waterfront, Pioneer Square and the park blocks. The hotel is fantastic - very trendy, clean and the staff is wonderful. By far the best value in downtown Portland. Overnight parking is roughly $42 per night. If you don't need a car, and can get to where you want by Uber or scooter. The hotel even "rents" bikes and skateboards for free.
