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 got a great rate because July in OKC is brutally hot and humid. Staff very helpful. Food good not terrific....having the mma fights on the bar was awful! Huge corner room with nice view. A refrigerator would have been nice...
Everything about this Hotel was fabulous. The entire staff were attentive, friendly and always helpful. The room was clean and well kept, for an old building. I will definitely miss the cookies delivered to our room every evening!
First off, the hotel is in great shape esp. since it was built in 1910. The room we were in was a corner king room and it was huge. The bed wasn't terribly comfy to me, but almost any hotel bed never is as I am a big guy. The room did not have a shower curtain or door, which I found odd. I asked the gentleman on duty, Rudy, about it and he said he would find out but in the meantime offered to move us to a different room. We ended up being moved to a suite at no additional charge. The only thing that kept this hotel from 5 stars was all the construction had almost every way to get to the hotel was blocked due to the tram rail being put in. It sits across from the Myriad Botanical Gardens, which is beautiful. The hotel Staff were Grade A. April was very nice as was Teresa, who stepped in to help April. The valets were pretty good, though they needed more than one some of the times. The Flint restaurant has really good burgers, a bit pricey, but not terrible. Plan on about $20 a person on the low end. It is attached to the hotel. The lobby is beautiful. The couches are a bit firm which is great if you like that. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
Hotel was beautiful. My wife and I stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We asked for and received the Couple's Escape Package which included champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, a night's valet ($25 value) and $50 credit to the Flint restaurant. They charged us $150 extra for the package which had about a $75 value. They did take $75 off after I brought it to their attention, which was an inconvenience.
As for the room service, the coffee showed up an hour late after having to call for it twice and when breakfast showed up the food was cold and not cooked to order.
A shame really because the hotel is located within walking distance of a lot of OKC attractions. Needless to say, we won't be back anytime soon.
We found this property through Hotels.com when we requested group lodging for our delegation to the National Baptist Convention, U.S.A., Inc., Congress in June 2018. Wow, were we pleased! The hotel has a history, and its architectural details are astounding. Large, ultra-comfortable rooms; super desk, food service, and cleaning personnel; extremely convenient to the venue we attended. A breakfast board meeting was held on the 2nd floor; my pastor raved about the attention to detail and service. The only suggestion I have is for the restaurant to add grits to the menu (that was the only complaint made all week). It's really a beautiful place with friendly, helpful people. Stay here, top recommendation from our group.
