Omni Oklahoma City Hotel, a convention center hotel in the heart of Oklahoma City, made its official debut January 26. Executives from Omni Hotels & Resorts held a ribbon cutting alongside those from the Oklahoma City Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Oklahoma City mayor and various other local officials.
The 17-story hotel will serve the city’s revitalized downtown area, including the convention center, Scissortail Park and Chesapeake Energy Arena, home of the National Basketball Association's Oklahoma City Thunder.
Omni Oklahoma City Hotel marks the brand’s first expansion into Oklahoma. The property consists of 76,000 square feet of flexible meeting, event and pre-function space—nearly all of which is located on the second floor. The exceptions are an outdoor event lawn on the third floor and a boardroom located on the 17th floor, which can be used as a convenient and private meeting space for visiting NBA teams.
About that top floor: It was designed to cater specifically to professional basketball players. Highlights include California King beds, larger door frames and taller ceilings and shower heads. In all, the hotel has 605 guestrooms, including 29 suites with views of Scissortail Park and the downtown skyline.
Omni Oklahoma City Hotel provides a variety of food and beverage outlets, available to both guests and locals. The seven restaurant and bar outlets include Basin Bar, OKC Tap House, Bob’s Steak & Chop House, Park Grounds—which all opened with the hotel —in addition to Seltzer’s, Catbird Seat and Double Double Burger Bar, which will open at a later date.
For wellness, there is a full-service Mokara Spa, fitness center and rooftop pool deck terrace. Mokara Spa is complete with a lounge, a sauna and nail salon. The 24-hour fitness center is available to all guests, while the pool deck overlooks Scissortail Park.
Omni Oklahoma City Hotel opens following Omni Hotels & Resorts’ "Safe & Clean" program. The initiative includes extensive cleaning guidelines, processes and procedures to ensure the health, safety and comfort of guests and associates. It is informed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and also meets the “Safe Stay” initiative set forth by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA).
