“good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Enjoyed our stay. The only thing that bothered me was the size of the pool. It would have been nice to have a large pool in the summer in this very hot city. the lobby was confortable and since we had a child with us, we were unable to sit in the bar, but were able to have drinks in the lobby.

Thank you for your review. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Besides the lobby we have several other great locations away from our Red Piano Lounge to relax when traveling with a child. I believe we have a great pool considering the historic 102 year old lay-out of the property, but I surely understand your comment. We trust we will see you again in the future for a return visit. Thank you.
Kindest regards,

2 nights at the Skirvin was a big surprise. A truly wonderful experience. Warm service and quirky touches make this majestic hotel oozing in historic details and design from an impressive pedigree. The renovation is superb and the ambience achieved is grand ambitions. The suites are my pick with a semicircular living room. Any hotel with an artist in residence gets my vote. Exploring the deco details on every floor tile and studying its history makes this my OKC museum hotel. The staff are great.

Room Tip: Suites with a semi circular lounge area facing the square

My son and I stayed at the Skirvin July 12 and 13 while in town for a wedding. The hotel is beautifully decorated and is very clean. The downtown location is perfect. The staff was exceptional - very professional, kind, and helpful. I did have trouble reaching the front desk by phone and also the hotel operator, but luckily the guest services desk would pick up after a number of rings and would try to assist me. My one complaint is that I was trippled charged for Internet access the first night and double charged the second night. I had no idea that each device used to access the Internet is charged separately. This should be prominently posted as you sign on to the Internet. We had two devices, but would only have used one device had we known the $9.95 charge was NOT per room, but rather per device. Please be aware!

We came for a few days and loved it here. Staff was great, room was great, nice bar with music.
If you like historic properties this is for you. Close to all OKC hotspots. The valet guys are great and give great advice for restaurants and attractions.

Room Tip: Get a high floor and a corner or rotunda room

What a classic stylish and lavish hotel. Stayed here only one night but wish I could've stayed a week. Love the décor! Feels plush and stately.

Rooms are clean, quiet and very comfortable and have plenty to offer. Located in downtown OKC this hotel is convenient for business, entertainment etc.

The non-valet parking is a bit squirrely though as 1) you pay $10 a night to park in a nearby garage (all but right next door) and you have to leave the hotel to go to the garage. Not only that but watch the exit signs in the garage, they can mislead you. The "card exit" does not mean for credit card payment. Means those monthly lessees who have a membership card to the garage. Once you get to this automatic gate, there's no way to get out without such a card. So I had to back up and go back up the ramp THE WRONG WAY to get to where I could go to another exit. Wasn't real comfortable with that as that could've led to a bad accident inside the garage.

But other than that, this hotel offered a great stay and like I said, I wish I could've lounged round there for a whole week.

I lived in and around OKC for 9 years and never got to stay at the Skirvin when it was open. This 2-night visit was everything I had imagined from the ornate lobby to the courteous service of all hotel staff.

this is an extemely old and classy hotel (1912) that was once the jewel of the "Oil Town" and was almost demolished in the early nineties until hilton rebuilt it.. You can't get a better building than the old character with the new amenities... I absolutely love this hotel..
