“It's like going home.”
Reviewed November 14, 2010

We have been staying at the Heathman Lodge several times a year for the past eleven years. We have come to know Brett Wilkerson, the general manager, as well as most of the staff. Brett and his staff are professional, yet personable. The accommondations are exceptional. Our son and his family lived in Vancouver. During these years, we have visited for special times, our son's wedding, the births of our grandchildren, Thanksgiving, Christmas and many other special occasions. Every time we visit, it is tradition for our family to meet in the Hudson Bar and Grille for breakfast. The food is wonderful. Last year, the Healthman Lodge and Chef Ray donated their kitchen facility to prepare for a fundraiser dinner to raise money for our son that had been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's.) We came to realize how special our friends at the Heathman are when several months later, our son passed away. After a long night before his death, we returned to our rooms to find the lodge had delivered flowers to each of our rooms. Many of the staff that we had grown to know and love personally expressed their condolesences. And so, each time we visit, it is truly like "coming home."

Love the Heathman Lodge. My husband and I have stayed in several hotels around the Portland area for a local "husband/wife" get away. And by far Heathman is our favorite and the one we continually return to! The folks are wonderful, caring and welcoming. The ammenities are top notch. We have loved every room we have stayed in - very cozy, clean and inviting.
We also visit the Heathman Lodge for family gatherings/meals when we aren't staying overnight. The food is amazing. Whether it's the wonderful happy hour, dinner in the restaurant or when staying overnight, room service - there is never a disappointment!
For folks visiting, the area is nice too with a lot of ammenities close by.
You will definitely enjoy your stay at the Heathman!

My conclusion: We have your money, what's your problem? Our experience is completely contrary to claims on the hotel's web site: "For those visiting us for the first time -
A relaxing, rustic getaway in Vancouver, Washington. The Heathman Lodge delivers a tranquil, mountain-like retreat brimming with Northwest ambiance and all the amenities you need to get down to business or vacation."

Details:
We didn't know our room was above the large party room on the ground floor when we checked in. When returning to our room at 9:30pm, we found loud music and our feet vibrating (no exaggeration). Phone calls to front desk produced no relief. This continued until 11:00pm, when the party presumably shut down. After getting to sleep at 11:05pm, woke at 11:38pm to the bed shaking (literally) and loud bangs. Apparently staff was shifting movable walls around. A letter to the Vice President of the property produced NO response of any kind. This tells me the company has no real concern for guests.

Our tour company brought 40 clients to stay two nights at The Heathman Lodge. Everyone was very pleased and enjoyed our stay. The rooms were comfortable and lovely. The food at Hudson's was excellent and so was the service. We have used this property a number of times now and have always had an excellent experience. Their group reservations office is efficient and friendly, and the front desk is helpful and always cheerful. The location is perfect for tours into Portland, Fort Vancouver, the Columbia River Gorge and to Mt. St.Helens. Just a short walk away is a mall and other dining options, yet the Lodge borders on a wetland area and is surrounded by trees, making it feel like a true Lodge. I'd recommend this property to both groups and individuals.

Initially mixed emotions. Website portrayed a mountain type retreat, as we approached we realized it is next to a shopping mall. Upon entering we were not disappointed with the accommodations or staff. Great food at Hudson's, good service and comfortable room. Wish I had brought a bathing suit as the whirlpool by the swimming pool looked great. Only complaint is that our room on the second floor was near their "ballrooms" and loud music kept us up until after 11:00 pm, which was not welcome with a 05:00 am flight the next morning. Our room did not have much highway noise, but I would be concerned if I were on the road side of the hotel. Had a wonderful test drive with a tempurpedic mattress.

I stayed in a "Business" class room on the fourth floor.
The facility is very clean. It appears brand new but has been open sufficiently long enough to show wear. You won't find it unless you go looking for it.
The employees are friendly and very helpful.
The room I had was very quiet and nicely appointed. The bed is first rate and comfortable. If I needed a bed, I'd want to have one of these.
The food I had was very good. I would be surprised if they make a profit on the portions they provide.
I have stayed at higher priced accomodations and been less pleased.
