The Heathman is situated in an ideal location in downtown Portland right next to the museums, parks, symphony hall, and just blocks from the river and shopping. Restaurants were close by and the service was outstanding. Although Portland can be spread out so when I had somewhere to go, the staff was quite helpful with directions and instructions.
The hotel itself was older but the rooms were furnished with up to date furnishings and amenities (plasma HD TV, etc.). One pleasant surprise was I had the opportunity to select my style of king size bed. I selected the "feather bed" and was very pleased. If there was any complaint it would be that the room where I stayed was too small, but that is what you get in older hotels in larger cities. For all of the charm and ambience that the Heathman had, give me the smaller room any day.
I was staying at the Heathman on business with some side trips. I thought the hotel would serve any traveler on business or leisure.
