Merely steps away from the azure waters of Lake Washington, the Heathman Hotel is a peaceful oasis amid the bustle of suburban Kirkland on the outskirts of Seattle.
The upscale boutique hotel exudes elegance and warmth, pampering guests with special services and amenities such as same-day laundry and a choice of preferred mattress style: European featherbed, European pillow top, or Tempur-Pedic.
Luxurious touches are also evident in the plush guest quarters. All 91 rooms boast soft linens, comfy robes, HD televisions, complimentary WiFi, and French press coffee makers. Many even have balconies where guests can enjoy scenic views of downtown Kirkland.
Such splendid accommodations make it tempting to stay inside and curl up with a good book, but activities abound in the waterfront community. The hotel is situated in the heart of Kirkland’s commercial center, where guests can explore numerous galleries, boutiques, theaters, and parks. Some may also choose to venture to downtown Seattle, located less than 20 minutes away.
After a day out on the town, guests can return for dinner at the hotel’s renowned restaurant, Trellis, a wine country–inspired eatery that features true farm-to-table cuisine on its seasonal menu. Executive Chef Brian Scheehser cultivates the herbs, vegetables, and fruits on his own farm and pairs them with fresh meat and fish from local producers to create savory dishes that highlight the bounty of the Pacific Northwest. The extensive wine list offers a selection of more than 200 wines from top wineries in Washington, Oregon, and California, as well as esteemed international labels.
Visitors can discover even more wines in the neighboring Woodinville wine country, home to nearly 100 wineries and tasting rooms representing every appellation in the state. Hotel guests can package a customized wine tour to some of the critically acclaimed wineries, making it easy to sit back, relax, and enjoy the experience.
