We recently visited the Marcus Whitman for a four night stay and our experience was very enjoyable. It's a lovely old hotel that has been restored yet has retained much of its earlier character and charm. The location is perfect for walking to the best restaurants and local winery tasting rooms.

Our Luxury Tower Suite location had been pre-assigned based on my earlier request and check in was both welcoming and efficient. Our suite was a corner room which afforded an extra window in the living room allowing additional light into the area. The very generous sized bedroom adjoined the bathroom which was spacious with a separate tub and large tile shower. We found all areas of the suite to be very clean. Amenities were of good quality.

The hot buffet breakfast which is included in the room rate, was very well done with a variety of offerings. The service in the restaurant and lounge was friendly and prompt on all occasions.

A highlight of our Walla Walla dining experiences was the Chef's Table offering in the hotel restaurant, The Marc. Chef Antonio consulted with us before our arrival to determine the direction he would pursue when creating our personal menu. The result was outstanding! We were seated in the kitchen area where we could watch the activity first hand plus had an opportunity to talk personally with the chef. It was an occasion we won't forget.

Overall, service from all staff was very good. Of particular note was my interaction with Jonathan, Front Office Manager, in advance of our stay. His attention to the detail of my request was thorough and resulted in a very pleasant stay. We would certainly return to the Marcus Whitman on our next trip to Walla Walla.

This is a grand hotel, but the people are down home! Thoroughly enjoyed myself and the accommodations. The room was quite lovely. And the restaurant is wonderful with an amazing and attentive staff! MEGAN was almost always my server when I dined, and she is wonderful. I observed her as she served an elderly gentleman, and her demeanor and patience was admirable for some who appears to be we young as she. Megan should be recognized four her outstanding service.

the Marcus Whitman is a beautiful hotel. The rooms are spacious, the lobby is a great place to gather, the staff are friendly and the free breakfast is delicious. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance of tons of great shops, restaurants, and bars. My room was kind of loud, but overall I would recommend this hotel and will stay here when I go back to Walla Walla.

Our stay was lovely! The room had every comfort, of course, but our stay was made truly memorable by the incredible staff. Therese at the front desk was so helpful and hospitable and put us in contact with the amazing Chef Erik to discuss our vegan needs (we've had trouble with other restaurants in the area so we wanted to check with staff ahead of time). He listened to our request and assured us that he was happy to accommodate us. When we arrived at the restaurant we were served by a wonderful young woman named Katie who made sure we were taken care of. Chef Erik surpassed our expectations to say the least! We had a delicious and artfully prepared vegan meal and every staff member was cheerful and kind. I would highly recommend the Marcus Whitman Hotel to anyone visiting the area (including vegetarians, vegans, and raw vegans) and anyone who lives in the area(especially with specific dietary needs) should certainly visit their restaurant for a beautiful meal!

I went to Walla Walla for business and brought my wife with me so she could enjoy some free time in wine country, upon arrival Jonathan was absolutely fantastic. He made our stay at this beautiful hotel very memorable. I can't say enough about Jonathan's hospitality, he made sure everything was perfect, was always there for suggestions and he has to be the happiest person I have ever seen. He was friendly all the time and what a breath of fresh air to experience such a nice professional person at a hotel.
Our room was beautiful, the restaurant has great food and the downtown is quaint and enjoyable. I would recommend anyone stay at this hotel, you will not be disappointed and make sure you meet Jonathan, he will take excellent care of you. Darryl and Marce't Brooks

Room Tip: Stay in the tower.

We had brief stay in Walla Walla and this is the only choice for those who prefer a unique and romantic historical hotel. Lovely stay in a central location with access to the local scene and wineries nearby. We enjoyed a beautiful suite for a very reasonable price and the service exceeded many fine hotels. Definitely would stay again here.

One quick chat with the very helpful hotel Manager Jonathan and I was sure this hotel would be a good fit for a romantic getaway and provide the necessities for our two year old daughter.
Upon arrival, we were delighted further by a beautiful hotel lobby, exceptionally friendly staff, a very responsible babysitter, fantastic wine tasting rooms (15 in 3 blocks!) and a complimentary breakfast/ brunch that fulfilled all our gastronomic preferences. The hotel restaurant serves local and exceptional meats and the hotel pub ( also child friendly) had the best happy hour menu I've seen. I will surely return with more family and friends as this was a perfect weekend experience!
Thank you Jonathan for steering us to the lovely Pioneer park and local toy store!
