When I only had one host (localhost) I would just enter my computer's ip address into my phone and it would load on my phone.

If you have multiple hosts, how do you access the host remotely?

Which app are you going to use? Remote Desktop?
Of course you can always type in the IP address of another host to reach out to it. It doesn't matter if it's one or 100 machines on the network.

How do you get the IP address of a localhost

I.e. what would be http://project1 on the machine that is hosting the files (LAMP environment)

So you have multiple Web servers... the answer is it depends. Are all of said servers publicly accessible?

If they are all behind the same public IP, then you need to configure each server to use a different port, and forward the right ports on your firewall. Then to access any Web server that isn't using port 80, it would look like this:
Http://public IP:port

If you are doing it from within the same network the servers are on, it would be http://hostname:port
