Very charming and old elegance hotel. Other that wine tasting, this hotel is the only reason to go to Walla Walla. Only wish it had a pool.

We spent 2 days here, visiting Walla Walla wine country. Nice hotel, service very good, comfortable. Walla Walla was a little underwhelming but the hotel was fine.

While this wasn't my first stay at the Marcus Whitman, it was SO incredibly good I was reminded of why it's always my first choice in Walla Walla. From check-in to check-out the experience is first class. The owners, Kyle & Brenda, are hands on....working every bit as hard as the rest of their team...and it shows. Quality truly starts at the top. The rooms and amenities are wonderful, the breakfast (included!) fantastic, the on-premise bar and restaurant a treat, workout facility is small but complete. Honestly, I don't think it could be any better. Absolutely A+.

My wife and I stayed at the MW hotel on our most recent trip to Walla Walla instead of a bed and breakfast. We really like the B&Bs, but hate having to get up at a specific time for breakfast. The MW hotel was a great place to get some sleep.

We stayed in a room on the 5th floor of the older "tower" which is the part of the hotel built in the 1920s, but it has been updated with modern amenities. Since my main requirement of a hotel is a place to get a good night's sleep, I will say that my expectations were met. Bed was comfy, room was quiet and I was not annoyed during the night by inconsiderate people. The shower was a little funky and the heat/cool system was noisy, but it was par for the course for an older hotel.

The location of this hotel is nice, we could walk 1 block to the Farmer's Market on the weekend. We were able to walk easily to many downtown restaurants and wine bars. In a city that is becoming more well known for great wines, being able to walk is a big plus for me since driving after drinking is not a good idea.

Walla Walla is a great town but it is made even better by the Marcus Whitman Hotel. The town is perfectly located downtown, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and wine bars. The staff is extremely professional. The accommodations are excellent. They even serve a good breakfast buffet. I participated in a conference here and recommend the hotel as a conference facility as well.

This vintage charm of this place is great. You'll want to hang out in the bar lounge or lobby for hours. My room was small but could hold a king. My only complains are the door key cards, which deactivate when anywhere close to a cell phone and the fact that bellmen don't start working until 11 am. I asked the staff to please address the card situation at check-in with guests so they can at least have some warning and know why they keep getting locked out. This is a mobile society. I wonder if more hotels are having this problem.
