Travel+Leisure proclaimed The Heathman Hotel in Portland, Ore. one of the Top 500 Hotels in the World in 2009 and recommended the large rooms ending in 06 and 18 for their “big deluxe kings.” Some visitors, though, may wish to check into rooms ending with 03 for a bit of ghoulish mystery. In Room 703, desk chairs and towels are said to seemingly relocate on their own. Could it be that an unfortunate guest jumped to his death and passed all the rooms ending in 03 on the way down?
No wonder, considering the flavor wallop packed in its brioche-based ‘nuts, among them Champagne peach, buttermilk old-fashioneds, and pistachio cream cheese. Our hearts, though, will always belong to the Cointreau creme brulee, which comes with a little plastic syringe full of booze stuck in the top, which you can squirt into the French custard and create the ultimate dessert cocktail.
