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 several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
