I remember the original Skirvin from the 80's, and I was excited to see how the renovation compared to my memory. They did a fantastic job! The lobby is gorgeous with tall luxurious draperies and beautiful dark wooded furniture. They did keep pieces of the previous hotel in the emerald green and brass elevator doors and glimpses of the old flooring.
I traveled with my husband and 4 year old son, and the staff upgraded us to the suite (I am assuming there isn't much hotel traffic on the night of January 1). It was amazing. It included a nice sized bedroom and large living area with a couch (not pull-out). My son and I loved the large windowsills that allowed us to sit in them and look out over the city.
We also used the pool, which is in the basement and is somewhat small, but it fit our needs perfectly.
If I were to make a negative comment, I would say the hotel needs to fix the lack of amount of lighting in the bathroom. In our suite there was a light over the shower, but there was only a small built-in light fixture (the size of a small track lighting fixture or smaller) over the vanity and sink. Just one. It was absolutely impossible to see anything much less put on make-up or fix your hair. I've never seen a sink area so dimly lit. I would recommend a sconce over the mirror (and there's room to add this).
The parking is either by valet for $20/night or save money and use the self-parking garage next to the hotel for $7/night. It was very easy to use.
All in all, I highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure. They really did a terrific job in preserving a historic landmark in the heart of Oklahoma City.
