There are a total of 91 rooms with 18 differenet room types. On first floor, the original bank vault used by Great Western Bank will stay in place and be used as an entry for the bar on first floor. The project will also have historical features on the exterior and interior of the building including the unique plaster work on 1st/2nd floor ceiling .
The second-floor mezzanine level will include 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 will be an elegant space, with the columns redone in wood and flooring incorporating local quartz. On the east end, a lounge will be open to the public with a bar and menu of small plates that will rotate seasonally. A coffee shop will offer beverages and breakfast offerings to go.
A Unique modern feature the hotel will offer is the use of Alexa in all guest rooms. This will make turning on and off the lights, and the TV easier, along with changing the temperature with the use of voice commands. Hotel Phillips will provide 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.
