Good location when visiting Walla Walla.
Posted Sep 14, 2016
After two disappointing hotels in Walla Walla, we hoped that the Marcus Whitman would not disappoint us. Unfortunately, it did. The room was okay and the bed was confortable. However, the bed linens were paperthin and needed to be replaced. The lighting in the room was dismal, the carpet dark, dated and needed cleaning and the room needed a new coat of paint. In the bathroom the towels were rather small and the new granite countertop clashed with the dated wallpaper and pink tiles in the shower/tub.
While we enjoyed the ambiance of the hotel and the breakfast room, we were surprised to find that the blinds were drawn and the room was very dark at breakfast time. With the exception of an excellent fresh fruit bowl the selection was really disappointing. The steam table eggs tasted like rubber and there were too many overly sweet tasting items plus greasy bacon and sausages. The homemade yoghurt was too runny and it seemed few enjoyed the biscuits and gravy. Biscuits were good with jam. Overall too much grey, sweet and greasy stuff. This definitely is not a HOT and HEALTHY breakfast as advertised.
