Omni Oklahoma City Hotel

Even with all the beautiful modern furniture that fills the hotel, the pool is the hotel's shining feature. The Omni offers a rooftop pool and a terrace deck that overlooks Scissortail Park. Serving craft cocktails at the pool bar with a plethora of lounging chairs and private cabanas available to rent, this pool has everything you could want. Not staying at the Omni?

OKCCOL – Colcord Hotel
A boutique hotel by Hilton, the Colcord Hotel is the second most expensive in the city with an average cost of $232 per night. Directly across from the Myriad Botanical Gardens and a quick walk from the Chesapeake Energy Arena and the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, this is another hotel with a great location. Offering panoramic views of the city from their restaurant or from the top of Devon Tower, this hotel has excellent scenery.
With the new standard of “hotel modern” furniture and decor it provides, there's no mistaking when you enter the rooms that this hotel is by Hilton. But, in the main entrance and the common areas you're surrounded by breathtaking marble ceilings and floors. The staircase banisters are full of character with wrought iron work. Gold chandeliers and fixtures add the perfect touch to make this hotel super chic.
Although the Colcord Hotel does not offer a pool or spa, they do have a restaurant and fitness center. Staying at the Colcord but want a spa experience? Their team is happy to provide you with several recommendations nearby.
The Skirvin Hilton Oklahoma City
Marketing themselves as “Oklahoma City's Most Charming Hotel”, the Skirvin is a hotel full of history. With an average price of $195 per night, travel back into the early 1900s at the Skirvin. On the corner of Broadway and Park Avenue, this hotel is located near the Chesapeake Energy Arena, the Business and Art districts, and Midtown.
The Skirvin's History
Founded in 1911 by William Balser Skirvin, the Skirvin Hotel became a large meeting place for business conferences, family gatherings, meetings, and more. Perle Mesta, William Skirvin's daughter, became the ambassador to Luxembourg under the Presidency of Harry Truman. Truman was hosted at the Skirvin as well as some other large names including Dwight D. Eisenhower, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Jimmy Hoffa, and Bob Hope. Talk about history!
It was initially built with two 10-story towers, and 15 years later they added an additional 13-floor story. By 1940, all the towers were built to be 14 floors. When William Skirvin passed away, the Skirvin family sold the 500-room hotel to a hotelier. For 43 years the hotel was passed onto many different people. In 1988, the hotel closed its doors and was left abandoned for 19 years. It wasn't until 2002 when efforts came to restore the city that the hotel became known as one of the city's historical hotels. In 2005, interior and exterior restoration began on the Skirvin. These renovations included the installation of historically accurate windows, new guest elevators, and exterior design. With a whopping 50 million dollars in renovations, the Skirvin came back to life once again in 2007.
Although the Skirvin does not feature a spa, it does include an indoor pool and a restaurant! So, if traveling with the family, the Skirvin could be a great option for you. The kids would have an activity as well as easy access to dining.
