Ambassador Hotel Oklahoma City

Ambassador Hotel
Contemporary boutique hotel in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

By Hope S. Philbrick

If you arrive in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, expecting to see the Wild West, you haven’t done your homework.

The state capital is the Sooner state’s largest city, home to more than 1.2 million people. Located equal distance from New York City and Los Angeles, and within 500 miles of 71 million people, Oklahoma City is where I-35, I-40 and I-44 converge. It’s a hub, not out of the loop.

There’s a history in this city, of course, but it’s also completely modern.

Ambassador HotelThe Ambassador Hotel embodies that duality.

Billed as the city’s “most unique hotel,” it’s housed in the Osler Building, a former office building in the Spanish Mission Colonial Revival style that has stood as a city landmark since it was built in the late 1920s. The place is distinctive—and thus fits Marriott’s “exactly like nothing else” Autograph Collection motto—yet it’s ready to meet today’s discerning travelers’ needs.

Renovations retain its Art Deco architecture and charm (the guestroom doors’ details are a personal favorite), but style choices never compromise practical functionality or creature comforts.

Spacious guestrooms invite relaxation with a warm earthy color palate, luxurious beds with leather headboards, and leather chairs with wide footstools. Showers boast extra elbow room and upscale products. Attention to details—like bedside light switches, plentiful electrical outlets at tabletop heights, abundant storage space—makes it easy to move in, feel right at home, and kick back and lounge or buckle down and get to work as your schedule demands. Internet access is free and fast, to ensure you stay connected…if you want to.

Staff members are friendly and helpful, whether you need advice about where to eat or can’t find something.

Head up to the rooftop O Bar for a great view of the city, to sip what’s claimed to be “the best handcrafted cocktails in town,” and mingle with locals. Enjoy live music on Thursday nights.
