Get to know The Hotel Zags and read below for commonly asked questions about our relaunch.

What happened to Hotel Modera?

As of April 18 2019, Hotel Modera officially relaunched as The Hotel Zags. The new hotel will retain the same great team managed by Sage Hospitality and offer an array of new amenities and guest experiences inspired by the surrounding Portland community. Guests will enjoy a renovated lobby and a Gear Shed outfitted with supplies and accessories for visitors to use on their explorations of Portland.

Are there any changes to The Hotel Zags’ hotel management staff?

No. The hotel will continue to be managed by Sage Hospitality, and all staff — including General Manager Nic Barger — will remain in their existing positions.

What is the reason for the change?

Today’s travelers are always on the hunt for locally driven experiences, and our team is eager to provide guests with an authentic, Portland-inspired stay. In an effort to continue to elevate the guest experience, The Hotel Zags will have a new voice and style, leveraging existing programming and adding local partnerships and amenities. The Hotel Zags will partner with local brands to curate weekly rotations and seasonal events for its “ABZ’s of Portland” series. Guests are invited to check out a wide selection of outdoor gear and travel items from the hotel’s Gear Shed.

Will The Hotel Zags be different? Stay the same?

Guests can expect the same high level of service, great team, and quality accommodations they have come to love at Hotel Modera. Additions to the property include a newly renovated lobby, the Gear Shed, and programming such as acoustic music sessions, DIY terrarium classes in the Living Wall Courtyard, outdoor yoga classes, and more. As a relaunched hotel, we look forward to introducing more locally-inspired programming, partnerships, and amenities that will enhance the guest experience.

Will bookings made via the Hotel Modera office, online bookings, or any other previous hotel reservations be affected?

We will honor all pre-existing hotel reservations, events, and bookings. All guest histories of past stays at Hotel Modera will be held and maintained by internal booking systems.

Will The Hotel Zags have a new website, phone number, or GDS code?

The Hotel Zags will launch a new website (, but keep the same phone number (503-484-1084.). Reservations at the hotel will be taken by the phone at the listed number starting on April 18, 2019. The GDS Chain code will still be BT.
