Have you done a Google search of the Skirvin Hotel? "haunted" is one of the first search words that comes up. For the record, nothing suspicious, strange or supernatural happened in my one-night stay.
The Skirvin is a really nice old hotel that has been modernized to the hilt. Very cool interior lobby area and rooms. Even the hallways are clean and modern. Exceptional steps have been taken to update this very aged property.
The room was modern and neat and clean. Only gripe here is with the desk. Seems pretty standard to put electrical outlets (many, sometimes) on the desk. This one had none, after a thorough hunt and inspection. One outlet with two plugs on a wall nearby. Today, with out world of gadgets and electronics, that makes a room quickly dated when electrical outlets are limited.
Otherwise - comfy bed, big bathroom, big shower, good soap.
The Skirvin is very proud of its restaurant. Had breakfast at its Park Avenue Grill; $22 for the buffet. It was good. I'll go as far as to say very good. But $22 good, for breakfast? Well ...
I'll wrap this up on a high note, because overall this is a nice place.

No haunts indeed. I appreciate your review and reference to a great Skirvin experience. Thank you for taking the time to review the Hotel and describe the services of our property. I am sorry that you were not able to locate the additional electrical desk plugs as they do exist in the center of the desk. I am thrilled you enjoyed the hotel and hope to see you soon for a return visit.

We had such a delightful stay at this hotel. The front desk ladies were so helpful and a joy to work with. Our room was clean and had all the amenities we needed. The breakfast was one of the best at any hotel; the bacon was superb and perfectly cooked. We will definitely stay here again!!

While I would recommend the Skirvin, it remains to be seen whether it keeps it's ambiance of elegance. Fine for people that don't travel much and don't know the difference. Staff response is quick and courteous. Housekeeping gets sloppy after a few days. Valet parking is nice, but pricey. Room service is way over priced. Food is okay.

The rooms were very nice - clean, spacious and modern. The conference room we used, the Continental Room, was more than large enough for our 20-person group. It was well-lit and comfortable. As great as the rooms were, the service at the Skirvin was the best part. From the front desk staff, Rachel and Brittany, to our servers during dinner, Ashley and Lindsey, to the hospitality staff for our event, Mia, the service was helpful, fast and courteous. This is a fantastic hotel.

The Skirvin is an amazing place to relax and unwind. Although there are no refrigerators in the room, one call and they will bring you one within ten minutes. The room service breakfast was amazing and seems pricey, but has plenty of food and leaves you satisfied. Would stay here once a month if I could! Great bar atmosphere with amazing pineapple upside down cake martinis.

I had a very brief stay here while on business. We arrived around midnight, and the bartender poured some drinks for us, although she had already closed. The rooms were very nice, and near quality of the Ritz-Carlton. The elevators, decor and lobby was gorgeous. I really enjoyed my brief stay here and will certainly stay here when I am back.
