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.

After 7 years of planning, the VanDyk Mortgage Convention Center is now open in downtown Muskegon. The official ribbon cutting took place on April 12, 2021.  

 

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic.
