Telephone


This old-school phone booth, complete with working telephone, resides in the lobby of the Marcus Whitman Hotel, one of the most iconic edifices in the WWV. If you look closely in the letters, you can see the telephone mounted on the wall inside the booth. I'll get an outside shot of the hotel up here soon, but for now, here is a glimpse at the inside. Perhaps I'll show more inside shots later, as well. Located in downtown Walla Walla, the Marcus Whitman Hotel is the number one place to stay when visiting the valley. It is luxurious, that's for sure, but their basic rooms are reasonably priced. They also have honeymoon suites and will give you package deals that include tuxedo strawberries (the berries are dipped in both white and dark chocolate to look like they are wearing tuxedoes) and champagne, or, if you prefer, sparkling apple cider. It's a lovely pampered night. Though the hotel restaurant doesn't have a reputation for the best food in the valley, it is gourmet, for sure! (Though vegetarians beware...you'll probably be eating either greens or pasta. The selection for herbivores is rather limited here.)
