I just completed a 150-person regional conference at the MW Hotel. Not only is the hotel lovely and well-maintained, and the food amazing, but the banquet and event staff are top-notch. From Brent, Edie and Sean on the event side, to Chris in sales and Jonathan at the front desk, every member of the MW team is warm, adaptable, and goes the extra mile to ensure a smooth and successful event.

The hotel is smack in the middle of a picturesque downtown, and since every bus company in the area knows the MW, it is the easiest thing in the world to coordinate wine tours as part of the conference recreation. This boutique hotel is a fabulous location for small conferences if you want to give your guests a taste of Washington wine country. A/V was great, and the plentiful, complimentary wi-fi throughout the hotel was a plus.

I can't wait for my next Marcus Whitman experience, be it business or pleasure!

Room Tip: I have not yet encountered a bad room at the MW. The tower king suite is extremely comfortable with...

I have a serious allergy and My fiancé and I went to the vineyard lounge for dinner one night. Valerie was so nice and really paid attention to me and didn't write it off like a lot of restaurants and servers do. She even brought out one of the chefs so they could go over the menu with me and help me pick something. Ultimately the chef made me the most delicious fish tacos specially so that I could eat them.

Hotel was very nice, staff was awesome and the restaurant was awesome. Will stay there again. Alex at the front desk was great. Walking distance from center of town. Must go to the Olive restaurant and walk down Main St. September and October is a great time to Visit Walla.

My company has direct bill accounts with various hotels throughout Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, and I have stayed at all of them serveral times over the years. The Marcus Whitman (MW) consistently out performs all of the others. The ease of the direct billing makes it easy for my company to continue to do business with MW. They could teach the Red Lion and the Marriott hotel chains a thing or two about direct billings. The hotel is also beautiful, with high end amenities. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. They are also eager to help you plan your activities in town. Of course I will stay here again because I travel a lot.

great hotel and staff
Devan was fabulous; welcoming, friendly, helpful and so nice. What a great welcoming to Walla Walla!

Therese was so helpful; especially when so much was going on...wow, your front desk staff does multiple things well! She helped me with my bags, gave directions, got me coffee in the tins and was so nice.

Alex S was so friendly and helping everyone so great!

You are lucky to have such great staff!

An elegantly restored grand old hotel. Our Tower Suite was large and luxurious. The food in the Marc restaurant was delicious, and the complementary breakfast buffet was very good also.

However: The service in the Marc was so dreadfully slow and inattentive that it spoiled the dining experience. Upon arrival at the hotel, there was no one to greet guests, no help with luggage, and no valet parking. We called the front desk to report a clogged drain, bunt out lightbulb, missing luggage rack, coat hangers and soap. 24 hours later we had gotten the soap, but the other items had been completely ignored

We have never stayed at a cleaner, more hospitable hotel/motel anywhere. The Staff deserves the highest praise for giving 110% all the time. You can tell the staff, not matter what service they are offering from servers to front desk, take great pride in their jobs and the hotel.

Room Tip: I get claustrophobic, so when I made the reservation, I asked for the new addition explaining why. H...
