21c Museum Hotel Oklahoma City has refined hospitality to an art – or rather, lots of it. A perfect addition to its city, which houses several museums and a ballet company, this brand-new stay is both a boutique hotel and a contemporary gallery. Contemporary artworks appoint rooms and common spaces, and they’re as intriguing as what you’ll find in cities like Louisville and Cincinnati, whose 21c hotels have fast become TripAdvisor and Condé Nast Traveler favorites.
The collection is curated by a seasoned art-world pro, but it got its sharp redesign by high-profile Deborah Berke Partners. Before that, it was a Ford Motor Company Model T assembly plant. Swing by Mary Eddy’s Kitchen x Lounge, head to the spa, and observe the ways that this four-story brick building, dating back a century, has received a sleek 21c update. Then, realize that you’re not just looking at works of art, but you’re in one.
The 135 accommodations are appointed with artworks of their own and feature large windows that allow for an elegant play of light and shadow. State-of-the-art touches include a Nespresso coffee machine, MALIN+GOETZ bath amenities and a 43-in. HDTV. Deluxe rooms offer your choice of one king or two queen beds, while the spacious Luxury Loft 1.5 Bedroom suites, which range from 850 to 920 square feet, all hold a king bed, in addition to a separate living area.
Visit Mary Eddy’s Kitchen x Lounge for a stylish indoor or outdoor culinary experience, with a regional twist. Like the hotel, this eatery is brand-new, and it’s sure to bring in quite a bit of buzz of its own.
The hotel is home to a lovely spa, perfect for winding down at the end of an art-filled day. You can also tend to health needs with a stop at the fitness center.
Oklahoma City is not just a capital of the state’s government, but also the state’s culture, housing various art venues and hosting an annual arts festival and even a ballet company. Be sure to complement your experience viewing the hotel’s works with a trip to the Oklahoma City and Fred Jones Jr. museums of art, and complement your visit to those with others to different types of museums – there are quite a few here, covering topics from cowboys to firefighters to osteology (that’s the study of skeletons). A visit to historic and western-inspired Stockyards City is also in order, as is a trip to the happening Bricktown neighborhood.
How to Get There
The 21c is a must stay in OKC. Walking distance to great spots like The Jones Assembly and Bar Arbolada. Staff and facilities were awesome. Check out Nonesuch (if you are fortunate enough to get tickets), as well as OSO on Paseo for tacos and R&J for late night cocktails. Will definitely stay at the 21c when I’m back in OKC.
This 21C lived up to the others in design, artwork, and comfort. There is no better stay than a 21C hotel as each detail is perfect in its esthetic. Oklahoma City was in a great old Ford motor building and how the building was used is spectacular. Just have a little patience with the staff, as they are trying, but sometimes don't get it.
This place is fun and relaxing. A wonderful stop in OKC. Make sure you carry a penguin around with you if you get the chance. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The Valet parking had my car almost as fast as I asked for it. and he restaurant food was amazing.
I proposed to my now finance the day of our stay (she said yes). It seemed like the entire staff knew about our special occasion. I called a couple of days in advance and they were extremely helpful in getting items set up in the room. They also provided us with a complimentary bottle of champagne and a free upgrade for our special night. On top of it all the room was immaculate. I would recommend this hotel to anyone celebrating a special event in the OKC area.
Fantastic venue, wonderful staff, good value and fun to boot. The art galleries were a+ and our room spot on. The bar had great munchies and fun drinks. The staff was spectacular! We will go back indeed.
