"What will happen to the Heathman under new owners?"
I stayed at the Heathman as always on my last trip to Portland. Decked out for Christmas, crazy crowded but still quiet and peaceful in the room. The staff is sharp and attentive as always - they have a great way of having the same person who checks you in take you to your room with your luggage and get you settled. There's no stages of checking in.
The hotel is breathtakingly lovely this time of year. It IS my Christmas so I look forward to it the way kids look forward to putting up a tree. They have redone the menu in the bar and it is much better, but still with old classics. The place still feels the same with beautiful wood detailing and marble. Nothing feels cozier.
I just learned the Heathman has been sold and the executive staff is already being replaced. I hope the new owner is not too heavy-handed with this. Heathman is a classic - this kind of service no longer exists in Portland and it keeps us repeat customers coming back.
The rooms, as always, are a bit small. But completely comfortable - great beds - everything you need. Spotlessly clean everywhere, and quiet. And the library is a wonderful place to sit with a drink or cup of tea and find a good book. There's a chocolate shop in the lobby that sells drinkable chocolate - don't miss this on a cold winter day. The hotel has old school charm but isn't run down at all. I much prefer this to the cold, modern décor at the local boutique hotels.

We had a very friendly welcome that didn't stop at the door. The hotel room was perfect for the two of us and our breakfast the following morning was brilliant. We really enjoyed our stay and will come back again.

From the moment we pulled up in the car, the service was excellent during our stay. The staff alone would be worth a second visit- highly professional, polite, and accommodating. The facility is a Beaux-Arts beauty; a grand hotel in the old style. The attached bar, Jack Knife, has an appropriate Portlandia-esque cabin feel and serves a great variety of local beers as well as a well-made Old Fashioned. Jake's serves a solid breakfast with great window seating to enjoy the street scenery. The location is tough to beat as well- central to just about everything in the downtown core. We will return!

We spent Christmas Eve at the Monaco with our golden retriever. The staff went out of their way to welcome us and our dog, even including a Christmas present for our pup! They have a pet sitting service which we availed ourselves of and they took great care of our dog and took him on an individual walk. The staff seemed to really enjoy the time they spent with the dogs and were just as attentive with us! Would recommend this hotel to anyone, but without hesitation to people traveling with dogs. The lobby is beautiful, our room was lovely, valet parking efficient and easy to use; overall an excellent place to stay.
