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
Our family recently had a lovely brunch in a private room overlooking the Myriad Gardens. The gentlemen who helped us were very attentive and friendly. Chef Patrick made amazing omelette for us. The food was delicious and stayed warm throughout our time there. Fruit was very ripe and tasty. There was plenty of room for us (25 adults) to spread out and visit after we ate. I would highly recommend this venue. The hotel seemed very nice as well. Jonathan helped took great care of us all.
We only stated one night but thought this hotel was great. Easy check in and good service from the staff. Rooms are large, very clean and comfortable. We did not have dinner or breakfast but the restaurant looked good. Complimentary room service with fresh coffee in the morning was a nice touch. Close to some nice pubs and restaurants in Bricktown
One is hard pressed to find a better place to stay in OKC than the Colcord. The downtown location is walking distance to great restaurants, the art museum, the botanical gardens, the civic center, Devon Tower, and Brick Town.
The accommodations are opulent, the service is excellant, the place is quiet, the bar was fun, and the bed very comfortable.
I love walking around the downtown area at night--very safe.
Valet parking is a must here as parking space is at a premium.
