Spent two nights at the Heathman for our company's BOD meeting. Location is good, close to mass transit and a few blocks from the river front. Plenty of good dining options in the area. Parking is valet, there is no onsite parking.
The hotel has a high staff ratio and everyone from the valet, the doormen and the check in concierges were extremely helpful. We had dinner catered in the first night and for a buffet, it was excellent. Cedar plank salmon, roast lamb and prime rib were all available in addition to some very nice sides.
Had breakfast at the hotel restaurant. Price was what you would expect. Quality was very good and so was the service.
I had a room in a corner on the 8th floor. The rooms are small, but not cramped. Beds are firm and comfortable. Small bath, very well appointed. Luxurious, large towels and bathrobes provided. Free wifi throughout the hotel was nice.
The lobby is small, with an adjacent lounge with a fireplace and soft entertainment in the evening. The second floor has the meeting rooms and a library reading area. They had a complimentary wine tasting one evening, but I did not attend. There is also a fitness center.
The only negative was that hallway noise was not buffered at all through the door. Fortunately, it was not very frequent. There was no noticeable city noise, however.
Overall, a great little boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Portland.
