This project is one of a kind. Turning the downtown, historic Great Western Bank into an elegant, boutique hotel. The building is 9 stories tall and will have hotel guestrooms on floors 3-9. There are a total of 91 rooms with 18 different room types. On first floor, the original bank vault used by Great Western Bank stayed in place and is used as an entry for the Treasury Bar on the first floor. The project also has historical features on the exterior and interior of the building including the unique plasterwork on the 1st/2nd floor ceiling.
The second-floor mezzanine level includes a library for guests, a fitness center, a spa offering guest massages and a social room that can seat about 50 people looking out on the river.
The lobby is an elegant space, with the columns redone in wood and flooring incorporating local quartz. On the east end, the lounge is open to the public with a bar and menu of small plates that will rotate seasonally. Coffea Coffee offers beverages and breakfast offerings to go.
A Unique modern feature the hotel offers is the use of Alexa in all guest rooms. This makes turning on and off the lights, and the TV easier, along with changing the temperature with the use of voice commands. Hotel Phillips provides a fitness room on 2nd floor for the use of all hotel guests, a cafe area for those coffee lovers, and a nice seating social room for those who want to relax, and kick back a few cocktails.
