“Just perfect!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

This is one of my favorite hotels in Portland (Kirkland too). The staff is very helpful and the rooms are perfect. The art work throughout the hotel is lovely and the location is right in the center of town. I will be back!

Room Tip: From room 911 you can see a beautiful mural. The suites on the 7th floor were lovely.

My wife and I stayed at The Heathman just to get away for an evening . Everyone was friendly and efficient. We got personal service when we checked in although a large group was checking in at the same time. The atmosphere was relaxing, and the Christmas decorations added to the ambiance. I enjoyed viewing the art work throughout the hotel and the glass work was amazing.My wife is a true bookworm and she spent a considerable amount of time in the library.The bed was so comfortable, that although we had to be somewhere in the morning, we didn't want to get out of bed! Our room was clean and I personally liked the extra sink so we could both use the bathroom at the same time.We look forward to another night away and recommended The Heathman to out of town guests who are coming for a Holiday Show.

From the friendly, welcoming staff, to the gracious lobby and large, well-appointed and updated room, our experience at The Heathman in Portland was fabulous. I love the historical and classic aspects of this hotel but appreciate the modern updates and conveniences in our light-filled room (our bathrooms -- yes, we had two -- were wonderful!) Enjoyed in-room, freshly ground french-pressed coffee each morning, and our car was always promptly brought around. The location is wonderful -- close to performing arts centers, coffee shops, tons of restaurants and shopping galore. We enjoyed a cozy drink and live music in the hotel bar, which had been tastefully decorated for the holidays. Definitely recommend, and we'll definitely be returning. Bravo!

Dear Tracy S,

Thank you for the great review. It sounds like you stayed in one of our lovely Renaissance suites. That is one of my favorite suites in the hotel. We have 4 newly renovated signature suites in the hotel as well. Each of these suites has a different theme and is spectacular. Hopefully you can try one of those on your next stay. You will not be disappointed. We look forward to having you as our guest soon. Thank you again for taking the time to submit a review.

Thank you,

The Heathman has become where we stay in downtown Portland over the past three trips. The staff anticipate the guest's needs and are uniformly friendly and responsive. The rooms are wonderfully appointed, conveying an understated yet distinctive and artistic luxury. The food is excellent and the restaurant, bar, and lobby reflect consistent attention to creating elegant and personal guest experiences. The jazz in the lobby is great and the hotel nourishes its historical and artistic heritage, and its location near museums and the symphony hall, in its decor and sensibility.

Room Tip: The symphony suites are wonderfully harmonic.

I was down in Portland for a girl's getaway and we had decided to stay at the Healthman based on other friends' recommendations and we were not disappointed!

After looking at pictures of the hotel on the website and Trip Advisor it looked a little dated, but the pictures do not do it justice. The property is beautiful and the staff perfectly attentive.

We had drinks and some snacks in their lounge as well which is beautifully decorated and had a relaxing ambiance.

The location itself is really amazing, just a short few blocks from lots of shopping and great food! Just ask the staff at the desk, they are so incredibly friendly and happy to make recommendations from where to get a good cup of joe, to where to go for excellent happy hour drinks.

Portland also as a city, is so incredibly friendly and relaxed. Loved my stay and will definately return!

By far one of the best hotels that I have stayed in. This was my first visit to Portland (business) and I wanted to stay at the best, so I chose The Heathman. I was not disappointed! The staff is so friendly and service oriented. From the front desk to the bellman to the housekeeping staff. All so friendly! The rooms are beautiful and clean. The lounge is heavenly---so cozy and decorated so beautifully for Christmas. The servers in the lounge were very knowledgeable about the wine selections. The food was great! I didn't want to leave. Highly recommended The Heathman to Portland travelers.
