Next to Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall ("the Schnitz" to locals), this old-school, boutique downtown hotel boasts doormen clad like British Beefeaters, and a library full of signed first editions from authors who have stayed here. Although the rooms tend toward the small side, they do have French-press coffeemakers and top-shelf L'Occitane toiletries, and the nightly turn-down service will leave your plush bathrobe laid out and ready to wear. The Heathman's restaurant specializes in Northwest cuisine, and is just as popular among non-guests. For a quick nibble, there's a gourmet chocolate shop, Cacao, right in the lobby. And for an evening's entertainment, you could do worse than a complimentary regional wine tasting in the library (weekdays except Friday) or a fresh pot in the historic Tea Court, with live jazz Wednesday through Saturday.
