The Skirvin Hilton Hotel to get full renovation

Marcus Hotels & Resorts, a division of The Marcus Corporation, and Skirvin Partners in Development, the owners of the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in Oklahoma City, are embarking on a $4.3-million renovation project currently under way at the hotel.

The renovation includes all 225 guestrooms and public spaces, including rotunda suites and the presidential suite, guestroom corridors and the lobby area. Renovations to the popular Red Piano Lounge have been completed. Enhancements include updated flooring, tables, seating and a new red piano. Renovations to the Skirvin’s lobby are nearing completion and focus on the addition of natural light. The lobby flooring has also been replaced with granite and marble to reflect the hotel’s original design intent. All remaining improvements will be completed in September.

“The new Skirvin lobby wall coverings reflect the original gothic design intent of developer Bill Skirvin when the hotel originally opened in 1911," said John Weeman, principal of Skirvin Partners in Development.
