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
We live in Oklahoma City, yet we love to stay at the Colcord whatever chance we get. Whether we are at a concert downtown or having dinner and drinks next door at Vast, the Colcord is conveniently located to so many great venues. The service is always top-notch and the rooms are always impeccable. Little touches such as turndown service with a cookie and complimentary tea or coffee in the morning are part of what makes this place special. Combine that with the modern, updated rooms and delicious room service, and we're lucky that we ever venture outside! We've stayed here numerous times over the years and have never been disappointed.
Arrived 4pm. Greeted with enthusiasm. Smooth quick check in. Room was ready & in perfect condition. Had dinner & 3 breakfasts in the Flint dining room. Excellent food & service. We arrived at 7:25 am for breakfast & told them that we had an 8 am meeting in the hotel. The were fine with that and had us out in plenty of time. Check out was smooth and quick. We had checked out & they held our luggage as our plane departed at 6:15 pm. We walked down to the Oklahoma Bombing Memorial/Museum. We were there for a couple of hours. It started raining when we came out and called the hotel and they sent the shuttle even though we were checked out. Kudos to them. A+++
Stayed here before a Thunder game. Great location for anything at The Chesapeake Arena. Rooms very nice and clean; hotel service good; had an issue with room service. Would not even attempt room service again.
