“Great Stay & No Ghost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The hotel is beautiful and in a great location. I would recommend the hotel to anyone traveling to OKC. It is within walking distance to Bricktown and many other places. The stay was quiet and no ghosts appeared in my room during my stay.

Dear Paul B – That is true, there is no ghost. Today’s Skirvin Hilton is a combination of historic beauty and modern luxury. The Skirvin Hilton is conveniently located in the heart of Downtown Oklahoma City. Sitting at the corner of Broadway and Park Avenue, the Skirvin Hilton is literally on the doorstep of Downtown OKC's most vibrant districts and attractions, including Chesapeake Energy Arena, Bricktown, Automobile Alley, the Business District, the Arts District, Midtown and Deep Deuce.Thank you for staying with us.

Kindest Regards –Brett Sundstrom | General Manager

General Manager Brett Sundstrom made my engagement not only possible, but romantic and extraordinary. After finding his phone number on a TripAdvisor review, I called him and explained my dilemma: I needed a place (a high place overlooking the city) to propose to my girlfriend. And I needed it in three days. Brett personally reserved the Founder's Room on the 14th floor of the Skirvin. Then, he made it beautiful. Fireplace, candles, low lighting, rose petals perfectly placed on the coffee table . . . the man must have done this before. He even provided water and soda for the friends and family members who joined us to celebrate after the proposal. All of this, he coordinated. And how much did he charge?

Nothing.

"We specialize in making memories," he said, and he didn't charge me a dime. Well, he sold me on the hotel and the service. What a memorable experience!

From the moment you walk in and that "signature scent" hits you, you feel like you have been transported back in time to the glamorous days when travel was exciting. This fantastic historic hotel has all of the charm from years ago with the convenience of modern amenities. I highly recommend staying here any chance you can.

Very nice place to stay. We stayed in the King Suite and purchased the romance package. The only thing we didn't like was that there was only a shower. Other nice hotels in the area have had a shower and a Jetta type tub. Other than that it was great and I would recommend it.

had to come to the city for a last minute meeting. called and booked the skirvin. got a suite for a good rate of 219. checked in and milled around. went down to the bar. gorgeous and red. the staff was very helpful. the well drinks were well done. deep and lots. wow. i think the girl was trying to get everyone drunk. anyways great staff.

had a chance to mill around the hotel. what a beautiful hotel. for years, this place was abondoned and forgotten. thankfully someone changed that. from the elevators to the carvings on the walls, well done. it was fun simply to walk around. i had a wonderful time.

as for my room, the bathrooms were large and comfortable. the fixtures are a bit dated. i would hoped for better. the toiletries very standard and generic. the bed was very nice and soft. the scenary was actually nice.

all in all, a good experience. i think you would enjoy it.

Dear Shark4rk-

Thank you very much for taking time to post your comments on your recent stay. We are glad that you enjoyed the hotel.

Our Red Piano lounge is certainly one of the highlights of our fine hotel and has become a favorite local hot spot as well as a place for our business travelers and other out of town guests. Glad the drinks were to your liking!

We also take great pride in our history, and we are happy you were able to walk around and share in some of this history. This old grand dame is truly a landmark in OKC and we are proud that we are able to continue to share the light of hospitality in Oklahoma City as the Skirvin Hotel for hopefully many more years to come.

Please come back and visit us the next time your business brings you to OKC!

Thank you again.

Kindest Regards – Brett Sundstrom | General Manager

If I'm going to pay $200 per night I expect to enter a room with clean bathroom. This bathroom was extremely below my standard. The bathroom also had a mildew smell I also expect the curtains in the room to close properly.

Thank you for taking time to provide us feedback on your recent stay.

I apologize that your stay with us was not perfect. We strive to provide an exceptional product for our guests and obviously we fell short of this standard.
I have personally delivered this feedback to our Housekeeping staff to rectify the situation and ensure improved cleanliness.

We would love to welcome you back in the future should your travels bring you back to OKC. Please contact me directly if you will be in the area in the near future.

Thank you again for the feedback.

Everything about the hotel is first class. Everyone is very helpful and courteous. The breakfast buffet is to die for especially the omelets that Archie prepares. The location is perfect. You are in walking distance to Bricktown(worth the visit especially Cortileno's Mexican Restaurant), The botanical gardens with the crystal bridge and the memorial for the Murrah Federal Bldg bombing in 1995.
