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.
