Formerly a 12-story office building dating back to 1910, a $16 million renovation in 2006 turned Oklahoma City’s first skyscraper into the Colcord Hotel, bringing interiors into the 21st century while keeping original details such as terra cotta tiles, marble columns in the lobby and nickel and bronze letterboxes on every floor. Although the hotel is National Register of Historic Places, each of the 108 rooms are contemporary and stylish, featuring king-size or double beds with garnet runners, chocolate brown armchairs, Bvlgari bath amenities and high-tech mod cons such as free WiFi, 47-inch, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. Modern American fare is served at Flint, where dishes include a mixed grill platter of lamb chops, veal jus, tenderloin medallions and chicken sausages served with a side of crispy fries. Rather venture out? The hotel’s unbeatable address in downtown Oklahoma City makes it a prime jumping-off point for exploring the city’s art and nightlife scenes.
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.
How to Get There
My husband and I, who live in Kansas, traveled through Oklahoma City on our way to and back from a wedding in the Austin area and had the pleasure of staying at the Colcord Hotel. Everything was above average about this historic hotel.
The weekend was full of celebrating a cousin's love and honoring his new beginning. It was a happy time, but our own anniversary had been sort of lost in the revelry. The restaurant in the hotel, Flint, couldn't have made our anniversary meal more special, and delicious. They found a quiet place in the restaurant for us to talk. The wine list was pretty impressive and the meal was executed in a timely fashion with plenty of time for us to savor every course and talk. The service was exceptional. Maybe some manager overheard us in the valet lane saying we're tired after being on the road and would need to "stay in" for an anniversary because every experience we had in the hotel seemed very thoughtful and intentional. We enjoyed great hospitality from the front desk to the restaurant staff. The fresh brewed complimentary coffee delivered to your door was awesome. We relaxed several stories high in plush accommodations. I was especially impressed by a huge bathroom, oversized towels, French soaps, a living space and two large TVs.
I was spring cleaning recently and going through some ephemera from that trip. And what do I find but a Trip Advisor business card with the names Katie and Deknisha(spelled right?) on it. It prompted this lovely memory and review. I hope these women have not moved on. Regardless, I have no doubt the same brand of luxury accommodations and fine Midwestern hospitality remain. This hotel knows what it is doing and does it well. We felt like the luckiest, most spoiled couple in Oklahoma City during our stay.
We were in town for an event at the convention center and booked this hotel because it was right across the street. So glad that we did. Rooms were clean, great size and beds were very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is beautiful. But the best part was how quiet it was. No noise from the hallways or from the floor above us! Will definitely stay here again when in Oklahoma City.
I stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed every moment! Rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. The coffee and tea service every morning at your requested time is such a lovely touch. Employees are attentive and helpful. If I do ever find myself in OKC again, I would stay here!
We stayed at the Colcord while visiting family. The complimentary coffee was a great selling point and did not disappoint. The hotel is well maintained and has such beautiful visible history. Our room was a corner king and the perfect size for a short stay. The sitting area was nice when family came to meet us to then walk to the restaurant Vast, which is in the building next door. Being able to stay indoors for the walk on such a cold evening was fantastic. We had apps and champagne in Flint, both were delicious. The wine list was very nice. We were able to walk to many places we needed to go. We also used our car quite a bit and the valet was always prompt and courteous. Service all around was quite nice. We landed very late on our arrival night and the staff kindly brought us several bottles of water, which was much appreciated at such a late hour. This is most definitely our OKC hotel of choice. We typically look for luxury or boutique hotels with room upgrades available.
Great property with lots of Charm! Very clean and professional. Shanecca at the front desk took exceptional care of us. The restaurant and bar was nice with good food and atmosphere. There is also a nice food court attached to the hotel.
