Sage Hospitality Resources Director of Finance in Portland, Oregon
We are looking for a new Director of Finance for The Hotel Zags. Stylish, inviting and convenient to lively local attractions, The Hotel Zags is an oasis all its own, offering a hospitality experience enlivened by natural beauty and the quirky culture of the city around it.

From its vibrant color schemes, modern furnishings, and large picture windows that perfectly frame views of the city and the hotel’s courtyard, the hotel brings the outdoors inside. Designed with stone-covered walkways, the hotel entrance is also framed by a Living Wall robust with plant life to mirror the nearby Columbia River Gorge. Though the property has a style and energy all its own, The Hotel Zags is all about the city around it.
The hotel invites guests to enjoy wide selection of outdoor gear and travel items from the onsite Gear Shed stocked with fishing poles, scooters, skateboards, hover boards, digital cameras and more for use to cover ground, capture memories, and share experiences with friends back home.
