I was faced with a heat wave of 106 in Portland, a sick 10 month old and enough work waiting in my sweltering office for 10 people. What better way to escape then getting a room at the iconic destination of The Heathman Hotel. From the moment I pulled up out front door the pampering began. The door men rush to make the transition for the outside world to my new oasis an effortless breeze. The hosts at the desk welcomed us like we were VIP’s they had been waited for the arrival of. The Grand suite was truly the sweet life for a day. The room was immaculate, clean, elegant but welcoming and SO comfortable. There was every amenity I could hope for and the addition of dinning space, crows nest views, surround sound, three flat screens, including one viewed from the three head full shower room. My son had a blast exploring the baby safe suite. Then we ventured into the room service and were treated like royalty where no request was to grand. The crab cakes would have any San Franciscan ordering seconds and the cheese plate was no standard affair. By this time both my son and I were ready to become permanent residence. There is nothing impersonal about this luxury boutique hotel. I truly felt welcome, pampered, at home and SPOILED. Every interaction with the staff was a pleasure. And when the maid even came to turn down our bed, chill our water and offer any final house services for the night even my son was grinning ear to ear at her smile. We slept like two babies with not a sound from the street and a king size bed of luxury to hold us. The morning was so easy to get back to our waiting car and seamless check out. I have never been treated so well and had all the details handled for me. I recommend that even if you live in PDX or you have guest or business associates to house. GO WITH THE HEATHMAN HOTEL. I travel a great deal for business and this was truly the best hotel experience I have had.
