Portland is one of the most walkable and bike-friendly cities in the world, and the easily navigable public transit system makes it simple and quick to reach nearly anywhere in the city from downtown. Looking to explore the city? Rent one of our complimentary bikes. If you’re looking to head for the mountains or coast for the day, there are car rental options, and freeways are easily accessible from our hotel. For those who want to take the wheel themselves, there are several rental options available.

Public Transit

With adult fares at $2.50, the Max Light Rail is one of the most affordable and convenient ways of getting around.

Take the MAX Red Line, take the Pioneer Square North stop, and you’re a few blocks from the Heathman Hotel.


It’s just under 45 minutes by train from the airport to Heathman Hotel, but it’s under 25 minutes by car.

If you can’t wait to dive into Downtown Portland, car sharing services like Uber or Lyft make things easy.

Car Rental

For those who want to take the wheel themselves, there are also several rental options available.
