We are currently planning our stay in Walla Walla for a day of wine tasting and a day of fun with the kids. Jonathan has gone above and beyond in assisting us with some of the details of our visit. I truly appreciate his help!

Three day stay starting 4-20-17. Front desk very capable and informed, very customer focused. We ate dinner at the restaurant: Randall Lutz was our server. He recognized us by name for our reservation; he made highly informed recommendations for gluten free diet. The onion soup was excellent, to die for; the halibut was more than excellent; presentation of all dishes...

Since we (3 couples) stayed at the Marcus Whitman for a few days of touring local wineries last week, we had scheduled a "Chef's Dinner" for Friday night. The whole experience exceeded our expectations. At our appointed time, we were seated at a large table in the kitchen (in a special alcove so we would be out of the way...

Hubby and I had a super enjoyable stay. The staff was really helpful and had great recommendations for things to do in the area. The room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast is not your standard free hotel breakfast. The food was really delicious. We would happily stay here again and will recommend it to friends.

Great spot in downtown Walla Walla. The hotel is very close to all the downtown activities, and they are within walking distance. We enjoyed parking our car, and being able to walk everywhere, to shops, tasting rooms and restaurants.

We traveled to Walla Walla for spring break, along with our two German Shepards (crazy I know, but we had not planned on traveling this week, and when we found we had to, it was too late to secure a kennel), and were delighted to find out the Marcus Whitman accommodated pets, as we wanted to stay at this property...

the Marcus Whitman is a perfect location for visiting Walla Walla wine country. Great service, lovely rooms and an excellent restaurant. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to the many tasting rooms located in the downtown area.

Our "Chef's Dinner" in the kitchen of the Marcus Whitman Hotel with chef Grant and his staff was a delicious and exciting event!!!! We would highly recommend it! We brought our own wine that we purchased earlier in the day at local wineries in Walla Walla. It truly was an unforgettable night!

We decided to stay a night just for fun. From the moment we walked into the hotel our experience was absolutely fantastic! Our room was more than we expected, breakfast was the best we have had at any hotel, and we even fell in love with the house wine. It couldn't have been better. We will be back for another...

Very overrated hotel. Needs updating. Room in new wing was extremely noisy. We could hear footsteps above and plumbing noises. Dining room was pleasant but the meal of pork chops was very salty. Wine by the glass menu was extremely limited especially considering that Walla Walla is a wine Mecca. Wouldn't return.

Thank Coretha P
