We checked in late on a Friday night (about 11:00 PM). We were tired. We were hungry. And we had just spent the day on various branches of my family tree and were grumpy. Then we met Antoine, who was working the front desk when we arrived. He upgraded our reservation, gave us some delivery menus in case we weren't thrilled with the late night room service offerings (we were), and offered to take care of our car. The only way he could have done a better job would have been if he'd drawn a warm bath, but that would just be creepy.
The hotel itself is a delightful old gem if you are into that sort of thing. The rooms and bathrooms have been updated, decorated with a modern touch and are clean and comfortable. But not all of the old charm has been stripped away, especially in the lobby.
It's in the "power and light" district (downtown), parking is easy, interesting places around to eat and/or drink, very easy access to the highways.
I highly recommend Hotel Phillips, and I rarely bother to even write reviews.
