The Skirvin Hilton, the #1 hotel in Oklahoma City, Okla., today announced it is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its reopening. In 2007, Marcus Hotels & Resorts and Skirvin Partners in Development completed a $55 million renovation and restoration of this historic 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,” 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.”

The Skirvin Hilton’s anniversary celebration will include festivities including:

  • Throughout the month of February, guests who stay two nights at the regular price can stay an additional night for only $10 by booking here.
  • Park Avenue Grill will be serving $10 lunch specials, Monday through Friday – designed with the Skirvin’s storied past in mind. A percentage of proceeds from the lunch special will be donated directly to The CARE Center, a nonprofit organization that provides support to 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 home a Red Piano logo martini glass – with all profits going directly to The CARE Center.
  • The celebration will culminate on Friday, February 24 from 12:00pm-6:00pm as the hotel invites all friends and neighbors for complimentary anniversary cake, punch and coffee inside the Skirvin Hilton hotel’s newly renovated lobby. Guests can enjoy a historical tour, walk the event space, or view newly renovated guest rooms as part of the most recent $4 million renovation.

The Skirvin Hilton has been the backdrop for many significant events, including weddings, galas and celebrations. The Skirvin Hilton is asking guests with a beloved Skirvin story or memory to share their stories. Ten favorite moments will then be chosen and published on the Skirvin Hilton’s website. The guests with the 10 selected stories will also be given a weekend stay to come back and enjoy the hotel in its prime. Guests can email their stories to

The Skirvin Hilton originally opened in 1911 and has been synonymous with elegance and innovation for the past five generations, hosting oil barons, dignitaries, movie stars, political leaders and presidents. Guests from around the globe have traveled through the downtown Skirvin Hilton to experience its unique sophistication and timelessness. Since reopening in 2007, the hotel has earned AAA Four Diamond rating every year.
