I am fortunate enough to be able to travel to Portland twice per year, and ALWAYS book the Heathman. For me, it is a five star experience. The doormen and bell staff are friendly and attentive. Check in is more than pleasant. Yes, the King rooms are small and the bathrooms are tiny. But here's the thing...they're perfectly appointed with everything that you need and more. There are so many thoughtful touches: soft classical music playing upon arrival, ultra comfortable bed with fine lines, well-stocked mini-bar and snacks, L'Occitane bath products, and of course...FRENCH PRESS COFFEE.
In-room dining is exceptional. I love that I can order from the wonderful restaurant menu and enjoy it in the privacy of my room, especially after a long day of travel from the east.
The caveat to my review is that although I travel frequently for business, I don't often stay in high end hotels. Marriotts and Hiltons are typical for me. If you're used to palatial rooms with bathtubs you can swim in, you will not get that at the Heathman. What you will get, is a charming, historic boutique hotel experience, where attention is paid to every detail. I can't wait to return.
