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
First, The nearest parking is 2 blocks away unless you pay $28 to park. Even then, it is dark and leaves one vulnerable. Also the hallways are a disaster waiting to happen—dark w surprising hiding places. No woman should stay here by herself. It is a shame.
If you’re going to OKC, this should be the only hotel you consider staying in. It was clean, decor was amazing in the room, art was spectacular, and the luxury of the room was, no exaggeration, 10/10.
I Had a unique situation, which I explained in advanced to the hotel, I arrived while driving cross country with a car and trailer. The hotel couldn't accommodate it in their hotel garage, so they went out of there way to find me a good spot around the corner to park my vehicle, above and beyond, I felt. the rooms were huge and beautifully designed, spacious and modern, the staff was great, and it was a absolutely fun experience, I wouldn't mind living there.
