They say the "Tower" is the place to be at the Marcus Whitman, it being the original 1920's building, though there's a newer wing as well. Several lobby rooms are furnished with period pieces from the late 20's, beautiful antiques and divans and little nooks to sit in and contemplate the charming scene. There's even a grand piano tucked in a corner that guests are actually allowed to play. One upstairs floor has a sequence of paintings on the wall depicting the story of Marcus Whitman and his settlement of the area.Free breakfasts are served in the dining room, chosen from an elegant and very generous buffet. Had dinner the previous night there ("The Marc") and it was creative, delicious, and the wines (Walla Walla is a wine maven's heaven) divine. Somewhat pricey, but you get what you pay for.
