Aldridge Hotel

Shawnee, OK

The Aldridge Hotel, formerly the Hilton Phillips Hotel, constructed in 1928, was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. As Shawnee's first real skyscraper, it was a key symbol of Shawnee's commercial development. More recently a fire damaged parts of the building's interior. A two-phased rehabilitation began in 2003 and was awarded final certification in March 2006. The project transformed the nine-story former hotel into retail space and 61 rooms of housing for low-income seniors.
