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
Very comfortable, friendly staff- a bit too helpful- requiring lots of tip $$. Shuttle to downtown etc. very helpful, again, have $$ for tips. Parking is $25 us tip for valet. Ends up costing quite a bit more than the cost of the room, but is a nice place to stay- just make sure you have a pocket full of $5 bills!
Ali, works in valet. Amazing customer service. Needed to run to the store and get to a dinner meeting. Ali jumped in to save the day. Beautiful hotel. Ali - keep up the great work.
The property is stunning and fantastic location!!
My colleague and I need to run to the convenience store. The front desk directs us to Ali and she did not hesitate even though the hotel was very busy. She was busy but still took time to make a connection. She was a pleasure, all the best Ali!
The hotel itself is simply perfect, great rooms, great food and bar atmosphere. The staff, Ali, Colton, Evan, Calvin, Gus and Zoie were the friendliest, kindest people you’ll ever meet. If you come to Oklahoma City I cannot recommend the Colcord enough. Enjoy!
When I checked in I was in awe of how nice this old building looked in the lobby area and I was even more surprised at the great care that had been taken to keep the older look but add all the modern touch you could ask for in the room. It was one of the most comfortable rooms I have stayed in. After a very restful night in that comfortable bed I was excited when the sweet lady from room service brought me a tray with coffee and fresh cream and sugar to my room. It was some of the best coffee I have ever had much less from a hotel!. As I went to my meeting I asked at front desk could they add a to-go cup and sure enough the next morning I enjoyed my coffee and carried a cup with me. The food in the Flint restaurant very delicious and the price was well worth the excellent service and preparation of the food. The hotel staff from the parking and doorman, check in, room service and housekeeping were the nicest group of people that were sincere in wanting to help make my stay enjoyable. I really enjoyed every part of my stay and look forward to returning there in the near future.
