The Heathman Hotel, the iconic Portland, Ore., luxury hotel, has rolled out a bevy of new offerings designed to make the hotel’s guest experience even more immersive and reflective of the city’s lifestyle. From made-in-Oregon honor bar items to in-room delivery of local ice cream, the Heathman Hotel is upping the ante on Portland amenities.

The Heathman Hotel joined the Provenance Hotels collection of independent lifestyle hotels in February 2017 and guests will find an array of energizing, intoxicating and refreshing locally inspired sips included in the cost of their stay. When guests check in, they are greeted with a glass of bubbly from Argyle winery, located in Oregon’s famed Willamette Valley. Each morning, they can find an elevated coffee and tea service set up in the hotel’s Tea Court Lounge featuring an array of teas from Portland’s Smith Teamaker and, every afternoon, they can grab a refreshing glass of a seasonal, local drink in the Tea Court Lounge. Right now, the Heathman is serving iced tea from Smith Teamaker. In cooler weather, guests can expect hot cocoa, spiced apple cider and the like.

The happiest hour of the day at the Heathman is between 5 and 6 p.m. when the hotel hosts a Local Spirts Social exclusively for guests. Designed to celebrate the vast array of spirits distilled in the Pacific Northwest, the Heathman’s Local Spirts Social is currently showcasing Oregon-made bourbons like Portland’s Burnside Bourbon, Trail’s End from Hood River, Broken Top from Sisters and Stein Distillery’s bourbon from Joseph.

Every day, as part of the cost of their stay, guests at the Heathman can sip a featured bourbon neat, on the rocks or mixed with a house-made craft cocktail mixer in the hotel’s Library and, once a week, distillery representatives are on hand to walk guest through tasting the featured spirit and answer any questions they may have. Throughout the year, the Heathman Local Spirit Social will focus on the full range of spirits distilled around the region.

The company has been partners of Portland’s most famous and beloved ice creamery, Salt & Straw, for years and the Heathman offers guests who stay at the property the opportunity to order pints for delivery to their guestroom. Each pint is priced at $12 and the Heathman’s Salt & Straw menu features four of the brand’s most popular Classic Portland flavors – Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons, Almond Brittle with Chocolate Ganache, Strawberry Honey Balsamic with Black Pepper and Freckled Woodblock Chocolate – as well as a seasonally rotating flavor.

Guestrooms at the Heathman are now feature upgraded, locally inspired honor bar items driven by Provenance Hotels’ deep relationships in the community. These include locally distilled vodka, bourbon and gin from House Spirits and Dogwood Distilling, chocolate from Xoxolatl de David, olive oil from the Willamette Valley’s Red Ridge Farms, sea salt harvested on the Oregon coast by Jacobsen Salt, and more. Items in the Heathman’s honor bar are individually priced and charged upon consumption.
