The Heathman Hotel in downtown Kirkland has renovated its 91 guestrooms and suites in a multimillion-dollar project.

The renovation provides a fresh, modern aesthetic along with furnishings designed to reflect the hotel’s Pacific Northwest inspiration, according to a press release.

“We’re thrilled to unveil a new look and feel at The Heathman that allows us to continue offering exceptional guest experiences,” said John Oppenheimer, CEO of Columbia Hospitality, which manages the hotel, in a press release. “We’ve seen tremendous growth in and around Kirkland — new shopping, dining and recreation within walking distance — and we’re excited to establish The Heathman as the top boutique hotel in the heart of this vibrant waterfront neighborhood.”

Conceived by Interior Design International Inc., the new design celebrates Kirkland while embracing its history, the release states. Natural woven textiles pay tribute to the city as the location of the first woolen mill in the state, which helped fuel the city’s early economic success during the Klondike Gold Rush and World War I, the release states.

All guestrooms include modern and convenient features, such as a media hub and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, along with existing offerings such as the Heathman signature bed menu, from which visitors can select from three bed types: European featherbed, European pillow top or Tempur-Pedic, according to the release.

The renovation also includes a variety of luxury suites with signature themes, including the Gallery Suites, the Terrace Suites and the Heathman Suite. Suites feature dual-sided fireplaces and spacious living rooms.

The Heathman Hotel boasts 4,555 square feet of meeting and event spaces that accommodate up to 200 guests, and it is home to the locally inspired Trellis Restaurant. Led by newly appointed executive chef Benjamin Closson, Trellis features menus showcasing the bounty of the region through fresh and sustainable ingredients that change with the seasons.
