Historic hotel in downtown Oklahoma City with art-inspired interiors and a vibrant piano bar
Skirvin Hilton Oklahoma City is a 14-story, historic hotel in the heart of downtown with a brick and mortar exterior that was refinished to look as ravishing as it did when it first opened in 1911. After nearly 20 years of abandonment, the property underwent a $55 million revamp in 2007 that left the 225 rooms with beige- and cream-colored interiors, playfully printed furnishings and spacious seating areas with flat-screen TVs. Displayed throughout the hotel are works by the artist in residence, Romy Owens, a local mosaicist rooted in the Paseo Arts District. The Park Avenue Grill specializes in Southern classics such as chicken pot pie and calf’s liver and onions. Live jazz is offered five nights a week at the Red Piano Bar, where signature cocktails include the red piano cosmo (belvedere orange, gran marnier, créme de cassis and cranberry). And for recreation, there’s an indoor heated pool as well as a fitness center.
In the Area
Oklahoma City is much more than just a solitary town located in the “dead center of nowhere,” but for what it’s worth, its eccentric locals embrace the tagline with a sense of humor. Join them for regional and international films at the annual deadCENTER Film Fest or explore the city’s art scene by stopping to see the world’s most comprehensive collection of works by American glass sculptor Dale Chihuly at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Then, tap into Oklahoma’s western roots with a walk through the “Faces of Bettina Steinke,” a display of more than 60 years of work by the renowned portraitist, at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. And at the Oklahoma Native Art and Jewelry, intricately designed pottery pieces are as ornate as the silver animal jewelry. For entertainment and suds, kick back to live jazz and blues at the music venue Bricktown, down on the banks of the Oklahoma River, or two-step while sipping cheap brews at Club Rodeo. When hunger strikes, make a beeline to Cattleman’s Steakhouse for soul food and Route 66 classic Ann’s Chicken Fry House (4106 NW 39th St.) for the chicken fried steak or okra and cream gravy.
