25 Largest Hotels Claim 38% of City Hotel Rooms / Hilton Inn West Has Most Rooms; Skirvin Offers Largest Banquet Facilities


Nichols, Max, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Of the more than 16,000 hotel and motel rooms in the metropolitan area of Oklahoma City, 6,090, or about 38 percent, are concentrated in the 25 largest lodging facilities, according to a report prepared by The Journal Record.

They range from the 509 rooms at the Hilton Inn West to 156 at the Crosswinds Inn West, according to the list prepared by Mindy Marshall, with information provided by the Oklahoma City Convention and Tourism Commission and the individual firms.

The 25 largest hotels and motels include 126,273 square feet of exhibition area, a total banquet capacity of 12,560 persons and meeting rooms for a total of 15,730 persons, according to the report.

This is the first of more than 20 lists of various facilities and companies to be published in 1988 by The Journal Record as a service to business, government and civic leaders, said Dan Hogan III, publisher of The Journal Record.

At the end of the year, the lists will be compiled into a "Book of Lists" for the Oklahoma City metropolitan area, he said.

The Hilton Inn West at 401 S. Meridian Ave., which has the most rooms, also has banquet facilities for 850 persons, 7,200 square feet of exhibition space and meeting rooms for 1,000, the report said.

The rates for a single room range from $48 to $58 a night. The hotel includes three restaurants, three clubs, a whirlpool, four swimming pools, tennis courts, a sauna, putting green, jogging track, exercise room salon and handicap rooms.

Next largest in terms of rooms are the Holiday Inn West at 801 S. Meridian Ave. with 486 and the downtown Sheraton Century Center Hotel at One N. Broadway with 400. The Marriott Hotel is fourth with 354 rooms at 3233 Northwest Expressway, and the Lincoln Plaza Hotel is fifth with 311 at 4445 N. Lincoln Blvd.

The largest banquet facilities are operated by the Skirvin Plaza Hotel, a downtown landmark facility which was built in 1911, with capacity for 2,000 persons. …
