Seattle-based Columbia Hospitality has acquired the management of The Heathman Hotel. Located in Kirkland, Wash., the independent hotel and Trellis Restaurant join Columbia Hospitality’s growing portfolio of award-winning properties.

“The Heathman is a great addition to our expanding collection of unique hotels, and we are looking forward to working with its enthusiastic and talented team that shares Columbia Hospitality’s commitment to superior service,” says John Oppenheimer, founder and CEO, Columbia Hospitality. “We’re honored to have the opportunity to showcase our expertise in providing exceptional guest experiences at such an esteemed property that is right in our backyard.”

Opened since October 2007, The Heathman Hotel intends to renovate its 91 guestrooms in 2017. The Heathman offers unique amenities, such as “The Art of Sleep” bed menu, where guests can select a room furnished with one of three different bed types: Luxury Pillow Top, Tempur-Pedic or Feather Bed.

“We are thrilled to have Columbia Hospitality join us in taking The Heathman to the next level and are excited for what the future has in store,” says Troy Longwith, general manager. “We continually strive to be a distinctive property within the market and believe this new partnership, along with our renovated guestrooms and award-winning dining, will ensure each guest receives a truly unique and personalized experience.”

The Heathman offers 4,555 square feet of private dining, meeting and event space that can host up to 200 people. Trellis is a 90-seat restaurant and bar that serves locally inspired food and offers year-round outdoor seating.

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom.

Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.
