The Skirvin Hotel first opened its doors in 1911 with two, 10-story towers and 224 guest rooms. In 1930, a third wing was added, raising the structure to 14 stories and increasing capacity to 525 rooms. After an extensive renovation project restoring the original exterior finish, installing historically accurate windows, reconfiguring guest rooms and adding new guest elevators, the hotel reopened on February 26, 2007.
The new Skirvin Hilton hotel features an elegant lobby and new restaurant, the Park Avenue Grill. The Red Piano lounge located just off the lobby beckons visitors to relax and enjoy the comfortable and stylish setting of the property.
The newly renovated hotel features 225 guestrooms, including 20 suites and one Presidential suite. The new Skirvin Hilton hotel is a short walk to the Cox Business Services Convention Center in Oklahoma City and includes 15,000 square feet of meeting and pre-function space. Meeting rooms incorporate state-of-the-art technology, including high-speed internet throughout. True to the legacy of its founder, W. B. Skirvin, the hotel once again stands as a proud testament to the history – and future – of Oklahoma City.
Skirvin's daughter Perle Mesta was the inspiration for the Broadway hit Call Me Madam.
