The Art of Architecture

A stunning centerpiece of the hotel, the Heathman Library is an illustrious institution of arts and letters in Downtown, Portland, Oregon. Its walls rise two stories, and the interior cultivates an air of sophistication without compromising comfort. Mahogany walls surround a charming arrangement of furniture, as an ornate chandelier hangs from the high ceiling. The second-story balcony invites guests to take a seat and enjoy a view of the library drawing room down below.

The Heathman Expanded Collection

The heart of the library is an elegant corner bookcase spanning from floor to ceiling. Along its shelves rests an archive—an inventory of over 2,700 volumes—featuring a generation of writers who have mastered poetry and prose. Each work is signed by its authors, creating a one-of-a-kind collection pieced together from Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners, U.S. Poet Laureates, and even a former president.
