Historic Skirvin Hilton Celebrates 10 Years as Oklahoma City's #1 Hotel

landmark, returning the property to its former glory as the social
center of Oklahoma City. Now, 10 years later, the Skirvin Hilton is
currently ranked among the top five Hiltons in the Americas.

"We are delighted to celebrate the landmark 10th anniversary of the
oldest existing hotel in the state of Oklahoma," said Gerald Rappaport,
general manager. "To celebrate this significant milestone with our
guests, we will be offering fantastic anniversary specials throughout
the month of February. We are honored to continue to be considered the
city's crown jewel and social epicenter and look forward to carrying on
the Skirvin Hilton's tradition as the premier hotel enjoyed by both
residents and guests."

    regular price can stay an additional night for only $10 by booking here.

    children and families.
  • The Red Piano Lounge will offer a $10 signature martini throughout the
    month. Starting February 24, for an additional $10, guests can take
