I highly recommend this hotel. All of the staff were so accommodating and helpful, especially Jonathan, the front desk manager, and Dan Leeper, the Assistant General Manager.
The room was perfect, the breakfast great, and you can't find a better location to walk anywhere.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Marcus Whitman Hotel. The front desk staff (Jonathan) was particularly welcoming and gracious - and went the extra mile to care for us when we told them we were celebrating our 20th anniversary. They kindly upgraded our room from the wing to a corner room in the tower, made reservations for us at two excellent restaurants (getting us a seat at one that we had failed to get reservations for on our own) and even had champagne served to us with compliments! Way above and beyond what we would expect. The breakfast buffet was abundant, and the service attentive and friendly. The location was wonderful for perusing the charming downtown. We would stay again!

We stayed at the Marcus Whitman while visiting Walla Walla for a friend's wedding. Overall, the hotel is a good choice. It's in the center of Walla Walla (granted, it's not a very big place overall), which means you can easily walk to the wine tasting rooms and restaurants. The hotel consists of two sections: the historic tower and the newer wing. We reserved a room in the newer wing, since they were slightly cheaper. While I did not see the rooms in the tower, I think I preferred the wing because it was set back from the main road. The room was typical in size and the bed was comfortable (nothing special, though). Additionally, the hotel includes a breakfast buffet, which was surprisingly good. My main recommendation would be that the hotel tries to "modernize" its feel. While they certainly don't want to ruin the historic and upscale feel, there are ways of making the hotel feel less stuffy (replacing the muzak in the lobby with quiet jazz, for example).

Room Tip: While the rooms in the historic tower have more character, the rooms in the newer wing are set back...

Our tour group made our annual visit to the Marcus Whitman Hotel for a special catered lunch. Each year the food and service is perfect, and this year (last week) we were not disappointed. Brent, the banquet manager, could not have been more attentive or friendly...he was great!
Thank you everyone at the hotel!

We were on vacation and driving from Seattle via Walla Walla and could not have been more pleased with the decision. The Marcus Whitman is nothing short of first class. We were given an upgrade for the old part (which I would ask for upon check in) and it was FANTASTIC.

Along with the room and location, the buffet breakfast is AWESOME!!!!

Very nice place can't think why everyone wouldn't.

You will be happy, trust me.

The staff is incredible, from the front desk to the cleaning staff. I have stayed in both the main tower and the more modern West wing. Both are very comfortable. The tower suites offer beautiful updates to a historic old builing. However if you are staying in the West wing, opt for the standard King room and not the Luxury King room. I have stayed in both, and oddly the Luxury King is tucked behind the elevators. The location is fabulous for wine tasting. There are numerous high end winery tasting rooms within easy walking distance.

Room Tip: Don't opt for the Luxury King in the West wing. I have stayed in both the standard and luxury ki...
