Hotel Phillips Review

I think if it was 1930s again, the hotel would be in its glory period. However, nearly 80 years later, the 4-start luxury that the hotel advertises is no longer. The public spaces may be eluding to the grand Art Deco interior that the Hotel was designed originally in, but the worn, aged, dirty guest rooms ruins any expectation of luxury you may have. I really wanted to like this place. I was disappointed with the stained and damaged carpeting, stained

and pulling away from walls wallcovering, old TVs, worn seating, dusty blinds and casegood surfaces, old bathroom tile and vanity...really, the entire guest room outfitting needs major overhall to match the very traditional and well kept-up lobby and other public spaces.

Never again

Booked three rooms for one night for a family get together. I was under the impression that it might exude a classy elegance from a bygone era. It might have passed muster if the service had been good or if the restaurant hadn't been absolutely horrific. But none of the three of us will consider staying there again. We laugh now, but it wasn't fun at the time. Live and learn.
