I stayed a night in Walla Walla, very comfortable in the old (1927) and beautifully restored part of the hotel. It's right downtown with maybe fifty winery tasting rooms within three blocks. The wine scene here has gone from just starting out thirty years ago to amazing, 100 wineries, many winning prestigious national awards now. The MW has a superb...

We stayed at the Marcus Whitman for two nights while on a self guided "tour de Washington" wine trip. We stayed in a luxury tower suite. Our room was on the top floor and had a sweeping view of Walla Walla and the hills beyond. Either the bed was really comfortable, or we drank a lot of wine (maybe both?)....

First time @ the Marcus Whitman and it was a great experience. Central location, old world elegance in the lobby, welcoming staff (especially Jonathan at the Front Desk) and world class dining made this a trip to remember. Rooms are well appointed, quiiet and bed was very comfortable. We were in a corner room on 4th floor in the tower....

The Whitman is a classy place in the wilds of Eastern Washington. The large lobby with old polished wood sets the tone for the entire hotel. The rooms in the West Wing are affordable and appointed comfortably. I always enjoy staying here while in Walla Walla.

Great experience checking in. When you walk in the lobby you can tell you are in for a treat! The rooms are very nice, clean, with comfy beds. We were in the West Wing. Happy hour was great, as well as warm cookies in the lobby after 4pm. The location to downtown is awesome . We could walk to shops,...

I was pleasantly surprised by the service I received from the wait staff. Miranda got me everything I needed before I asked and always had a smile on her face. Kyla was also very knowledgeable about the wine and helped me pick a great one. Great event and great service.

My husband and I stayed at the Marcus Whitman for three nights in April 2015. We were attending a function at Whitman College, and thought we'd try the Whitman hotel because we'd admired its public rooms on a previous visit. Primarily for cost reasons, I booked a double queen room in the west wing. It was a mistake -- the...

The Marc is a lovely experience. The recently remodeled west wing has very comfortable rooms. We reserved at the last minute and upon check in were upgraded to a larger room. Not for the average pocket book but a great romantic getaway. The room is nice but bathrooms are a bit small...the Holiday Inn in Pullman had larger bathrooms. Understandable...
