“A Historic Hotel with Luxury Touches”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I recently went to Portland Oregon on a business trip. I was pleasantly surprised by the Heathman. As you walk into the Hotel you automatically know you are entering a GRAND DAME Hotel , it exudes history yet wtih a contemporary flair. Off the check in area , is a beautiful bar that I enjoyed not only for the scothes but great afternoon tea service. As I went up to my room the ART COLLECTION was amaxizing. I must have seen three Warhol's a true art fans dream. I was booked in a one of the suites. If you normally stay at a Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton this room would not dissapoint you. It was 905. One Bedroom with a deep soaking tub marble bathroom and walk in shower enought for two people ,loved the dual showerhead. The living and dining room area,is where I spent most of my time. I forgot I was on a business trip as I drank my Oregon wine and checked emails next to the fireplace. L/Occtaine bathroom amenities were a special touch , as well as the plush robes. I can go on , and on about the room but what makes this hotel is the STAFF. It was sincere and efficient. I travel quite a bit for my job and I must say this is going on my top favorites in the US.

I had a marathon week of meetings in Portland last week, complete with 16 hour days and many presentations. The rooms are beautifully appointed, with clean, updated and classic decor. Each night, I was greeted with the comfort and elegance of this unique property, and the extra-special treatment from a fantasic staff. Every employee, from the bellman to the front desk to our waiter in the lounge, provided service with genuine care.

I also didnt have to leave the hotel to experience creative cuisine. I ate in the lounge, the hotel restaurant, and the bar. The mushroom risotto was out of this world, and the happy hour pricing in the lounge made it more than affordable to experience a value at happy hour.

The Heathman is in the heart of downtown business district and several theatres. This is the perfect hotel for both business and a special weekend of leisure.

I was in Portland for business and had a fantastic experience staying at The Heathman. The staff were helpful and nice. The bed was very comfortable, and the rooms/hotel was extremely clean. It's located in a great spot. I will definitely make sure to stay here on future trips to Portland.

My elderly mother and I stayed here for two nights just before Christmas. We booked a corner room so we could enjoy the Christmas lights on Broadway. The room was gorgeous-and I wish reviewers would quit complaining about the size of the rooms. This is an inner city hotel and an historic one at that. If you want large rooms go to one of the more cookie-cutter chains. The Heathman is charming and oh so comfortable. The corner room was well furnished, and well organised. The staff are available to help you with anything. From changing to the duvet to an non-down comforter, opening a bottle of wine, and finding extra coffee (which was delicious). Though everyone raves about the food, I think there are better restaurants in Portland (like the Urban Cafe), but our room service meal was perfectly acceptable and reasonable.

Room Tip: Unless you are from a rural farm, ignored the reviewers who complain about the noise. We were on the...

Stayed for 2 nights for business trip for the third time in Portland. We get a corporate rate so I'm biased about the value.

Overall it's fantastic. The rooms are good but not very spacious so share a room with someone you like. The first and second time I stayed here my room had temperpedic beds and I'm not personally a huge fan. This last time I got a featherbed and it was fluffy and dream like.

Their lotions and soaps are top notch - important when your packing is restricted to a carry-on and you value the products you use on a daily basis.

Every member of staff I encountered was overly welcoming which is nice if you're stressed like I was and had helpful tips and tricks to navigating Portland.

I am so thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay, even though you working. It is so important to us that our guests get a great night sleep, I am glad you were so comfortable in the featherbed. We will add that to your profile so you get that bed type every time you stay with us. We will see you again next time you are in Portland.

Stayed a few nights at The Heathman at the start of a west coast road trip. I booked it online as it was the best value - cost under one fifty a night (in august). Great location, very friendly service. Lounge was great although service was a bit slow. There are many great restos in Portland, so I wouldn't stick with this one. Room was fantastic - roomy, nicely finished. Wireless internet seemed a bit slow. Bathroom was great - great personal care products as well.

We are Portlanders so we know this town. Our stay was for New Year's Eve in a Symphony Suite. This hotel often has very good special rates on their site if you book early, which we did. Our room was very nice, fairly small for a suite. Parking was $29 per night. Bathroom ample and fully supplied. One issue, the pillows were absolutely awful and our friends had the same problem. I think they were originally filled with wet cement and had been allowed to dry out. Need to fix it people.
The hotel ambiance is very cosy, old world and service first class. The food is excellent, we often dine there and the bar has a nice atmosphere.

Room Tip: Never mind the room, bring a down pillow !!
