What a delight it was to drive up to the Historic Heathman Hotel in Portland, Oregon and be greeted by the smiling Vintage attired Valet. This set the stage for a perfect stay and urban experience. Checking in was prompt and informative; we were asked if we needed dinner reservations, theater tickets or any directions. Our valet wasn't at all disturbed my our masses of luggage, he charmingly told us he had had as many as six carts full for a previous guest, which made us feel relieved.
This wonderful old Heritage Hotel provided us with charm and convenience. Located in the heart of the downtown and theater area it is only a couple of blocks from Pioneer Square as well as the theaters and many museums.
The elevators are quick, the wide hallways enhanced by lighted live Orchid plants. Our room was luxuriously appointed with a European down mattress (one of three choices). We enjoyed the French Press coffee/tea setup every morning while reading the Oregonian Newspaper which was supplied outside our room. We enjoyed the relaxing feeling of being un-rushed and pampered. Also important to us is fresh Oregon air, and the windows here actually open! The Heathman provides for instant internet connection right at the in-room desk and a guest library/ business area above the lounge. There is a small gym for those who want to keep up their exercise routines - however we enjoyed the exercise of walking and exploring the city on foot with no need for using a car. At the Heathman, happy hour is a grand experience in the magnificent and gracious lounge.
We loved every minute of our visit at the Heathman.
