This is a really gorgeous historic hotel. The room we had was spacious (4001). The bed was too soft for me, as I like firmer beds. Every employee we encountered was nice and professional. My only complaint is that the housekeeping didn't do a good job on our room. The bathroom counter had very obviously not been clean. There were... More

We stayed at the Marcus Whitman Hotel in Walla Walla to attend the James Beard Benefit there on July 18th and 19th. Our stay was perfect. The rooms at the hotel are spacious and comfortable, the staff from the front desk to the maid service excellent, and last but not least, the food at the Marc exceptional. Walla Walla has... More

Friends had reserved the Chefs Table in the Marc at the Marcus Whitman Hotel. We did not know what to expect. I can safely it was one of the finest dining experiences I have ever had. The sentiment is shared by all of us. First we were sat in the kitchen by Dan McCaffrey, Restaurant & Lounge Manager. The wine... More

The MW is a grand old hotel from the early 20's that has been refurbished in recent years; however, when I see previous reviews with a 5 star I am expecting a door person and valet. We had to hunt a cart and push ourselves. No welcoming bowl of fruit on reception counter. No "very outstanding breakfast buffet" when is... More

We had our daughter's wedding reception at this beautiful jewel of Walla Walla and it could not have been better. The atmosphere at the hotel and the grand ballroom is gorgeous for this kind of event. The staff is outstanding on meeting every request and desire we had and goes out of their way to provide such a professional experience!... More

The staff were not very friendly. The wedding was catered by the Whitman and it was terrible!!! All three courses were dry and overcooked and... More

This is a classy and charming older hotel. Like other classics, it has it's quirks, such as bathrooms that are much too small. But I far prefer it to a cookie cutter chain hotel. Beds are comfy. Wifi is free. Service is polite and professional. Rooms are clean. What more could you ask for?

I was in town for a conference and Marcus Whitman was the recommended hotel. Between the very nice rooms, the delicious breakfast that was included, the friendly, professional staff, and its ideal downtown location, I found it to be worth every penny and more. I have recommended this hotel to friends.

This was our first time staying at the Marcus Whitman. The Concierge Service by Jonathan Grant was exceptional. Mr. Grant made us feel welcomed and helped us navigate the points of interest and made dinner reservations at numerous restaurants. The entire experience was absolutely wonderful. The staff, the waiters in the restaurant were very friendly and made us feel very... More

Historic hotel with good service. Met the Front office manager and another employee on the floors. They came down with me and made me feel welcomed to the hotel. They were always willing to help. They even sent some wine to the room as a welcome.
