Stayed in downtown to attend an event at the BOK Center. Hotel is an easy walk to BOK. Upon arrival room was not ready and so they offered to upgrade us from "kitchenette" to full suite. Even let us tour the rooms. Full suites have only one King bed and a lumpy pull out sofa so we chose to stay with the regular room. Best part about this hotel- QUIET! Stayed over a weekend and there was a huge wedding reception one evening with all the alcohol fueled loud, celebratory festivities that entails. Lobby was hopping! I thought "great, there goes my nights sleep!" NOT SO! We were only on the 3rd floor and yet did not hear a PEEP out of the party. In fact, it was so quiet during the entire time we felt as though we were the only ones in the hotel. Four of us (all ladies) stayed in one "regular" room. It was quite adequate. I brought in an air mattress (far more comfortable than a sleeper sofa) as I don't sleep well and didn't want to disturb my friends. Staff provided bedding without blinking an eye. Everyone on the staff was professional but very friendly. We heard "My pleasure" a lot. As there were four of us we needed more wash cloths and towels and had to keep asking for them daily. Each request was answered promptly. Had dinner once in the hotel restaurant. Entered with trepidation afraid it would be overpriced, tiny portions, of icky food like a lot of other HOTEL RESTAURANTS. Food was wonderfully prepared, and beautifully served. We did not use the valet parking and most of the time just walked wherever we wanted to go. The hotel does offer a very limited number of free on street parking slots. The one time we did move our car, upon return we had to park two blocks away. It was especially difficult as there was a concert downtown in addition to the BOK event. Felt safe enough walking downtown though. Every time we left or returned through the front door staff would say something pleasant. One of the valets even did a little Mayo Hotel dance he created. Fun! We did wonder what the designer of the hotel was thinking when decorating the lobby. Somehow in that person's mind orange and grey striped chairs go great with taupe curtains, maroon seating and black and white lighting fixtures. Said tongue in cheek -We could not decide if the designer was truly talented or really unstable. I requested a "nice view" but we got the view of the trash dumpster alley which was disappointing. However, the staff was awesome, the hotel appointments, and amenities were wonderful, it was restful and quite and well worth the price.
