Where we stayed in Walla Walla
Where do Seattle Times travel writers stay when they travel? Here's where, and how they liked it.
Walla Faces Inn (downtown), 214 E. Main St.; www.wallafaces.com or 877-301-1181.
Rates: $85-$295, varying by season and day of week.
Pros: Five beautifully appointed suites, with kitchens, and one studio, on upper floor of 1904 brick building. Easy walk to wine-tasting rooms, restaurants, shops and Whitman College. Original art throughout. Free wine and other refreshments upon arrival. Free parking.
Cons: In a four-night stay, we had problems with temperature control, hot water, light controls, noise. The Walla Faces wine-tasting room, below the inn, has live music on weekends, easily heard from guest rooms (though innkeepers smartly invite guests to come for a free glass of wine during music sets). No on-site staff; guests must phone innkeeper if problems arise.
Would we stay there again? Maybe.
