Yeah it's a $50+ million restoration project of the Skirvin Hotel which has been closed since the late 80's. It will become the Skirvin Hilton and be open just in time for the Big 12 Basketball Tournament, which we are hosting in March.

Have you seen the 20s-era postcards that portray the hotel in more an art-deco array? It looks pretty snazzy too, FNB and the Ramsey Tower are distorted and it looks pretty cool.

The Hilton Skirvin Hotel has set it's grand opening for February 26th. There's an article out there, but I won't post it for fear of violating some rule.

Just post the link and you'll be fine.

They just don't make them like the Skirvin any more. I'm glad it didn't get knocked down; it's one rather gorgeous building.

The Man Who Built the Skirvin

An interesting article about W. B. Skirvin himself. The hotel was to have has a 28 story tower adjacent, but the depression forced Skirvin to cap it at 14 stories. From all appearances, the Skirvin clan were colorful, to say the least.

Skirvin Hilton Opens its Doors Again After 19 Year Hiatus

The Skirvin Hilton is open in downtown Oklahoma City! It's great to see that such a significant structure could be resuscitated just in time for Oklahoma's Centennial. Perhaps more of downtown OKC will follow in its wake. This is a solid cornerstone for the city's revival.
