“Great old hotel with much character”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

There are some towns where it is fun to stay in an older or distinctive property and in Portland the Heathman would be that kind of hotel. It has a charm and understated elegance about it that conjures up memories of the past. This is more of a hotel for a business stay, or for those wanting to be centrally located in the city area of Portland. I would probably notrecommend it as much for families. But give it a try if you have not stayed there before. I enjoyed the hotel and would return.

Stayed October 2013, traveled on business

10 years ago. It was fun to come back to spend New Year's Eve, relive our dining experience, and enjoy the Oregon Symphony and Gay Men's Chorus music to ring in the New Year. Brunch was delicious, the wait staff superb, and may have been the same we had years ago. Nice!

An excellent Hotel with a very good restaurant. Be sure to confirm your restaurant reservations. The Hotel is well located to the Performing Arts theaters. A well furbished hotel in an older building. Small, quiet and nice.

A week before Christmas my husband and I opted to stay downtown while attending a holiday party at The Heathman. We were able to check-in in advance of our event to freshen up. On a cold winter evening, it was nice to only need an elevator ride to get to our party. The Heathman did an excellent job with the party, everything was top-notch. The space was beautifully decorated. Food and drink were marvelous. The Heathman made for a very festive destination. The whole hotel had an upscale holiday feel. Again after the party it was delight to only need a short trip back to our room. The Heathman made it easy to relax, unwind, and enjoy a holiday evening. I'd recommend make this a holiday tradition!

This Hotel was so beautiful and the staff was First Rate. Staff, Service, Food and attention to detail for guests was Fantastic. In the heart of the City with access to all the concerts, shopping. WONDERFUL. Words do not express the beauty of the Hotel from the moment you walk in and see all the details, chandelier, then the rooms which we had the Symphony Suite and loved it. Beds were comfortable, enjoyed the amenities in the room and had we had a longer stay would have taken advantage of the spa packages. Room service quick with a smile and excellent food. All in all it made a trip for three girls a delight and cannot wait to return and spend more time at the Heathman.

Room Tip: Worth every $

The Heathman was a great place for my husband and I to have a local stay-cation away from the kids. Everything was perfect, and I was thrilled to experience first hand the care and comfort that is provided to all the guests, since I often put up guests at the Heathman when making travel plans for visitors in my line of work.
