The 225-room/suite property is located steps from Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Courtyard Oklahoma City Downtown is owned and operated by Springfield-based John Q. Hammons Hotels & Resorts.
All of the Courtyard Oklahoma City Downtown’s guest rooms/suites now feature new carpet, furnishings and fixtures in a contemporary motif. Guests are welcomed by a more inviting color palette of crimson, gold and earth tones. In-room amenities include: 37 inch LCD HDTVs, Serta Perfect Sleeper bedding designed specifically for Marriott and the white linen Revive Collection.
In addition, and to specifically target the MICE industry, part of the hotel’s 5,000 square feet of meeting and convention space received cosmetic changes.
