The Phoenix Inn is a downtown Olympia staple. It's the go-to hotel for Weekly Volcano staffer to stumble in after the Best of Olympia party. It also has delicious, fresh-baked cookies in its lobby.

The hotel will undergo a huge remodel this May - one that includes adding a bar and restaurant.

"We plan on remodeling the whole hotel - corridors, rooms, pool, everything," says Janine Condit, general manager. "It's going to be the same feel, just an updated renovation." Condit says rooms will have larger layouts, there will be more conveniences, but no more spa suites - there will still be spa in the pool area.

Condit tells me the bar and restaurant will serve smaller breakfast, lunch and dinner items and bar food and that they will have grab and go morning specials like scrambles and paninis.

What about the fresh baked cookies? Condit assures the staff will still serve guests the coveted treat.

A quick check on the coming bar's liquor license confirms the rumor. PRESS NW is the business name on the application, filed by Aimbridge Concessions, Inc., which does business as the DoubleTree, the full service hotel owned by Hilton Enterprises, with more than 325 locations spread over five continents.

No matter who owns the hotel, a bar in the lobby spells trouble for Volcano staffers needing shut eye after the Best of Olympia party.
