Oklahoma City

What's the best neighborhood in Oklahoma City for a first time visitor?

I've never been to Oklahoma City and I'm a little overwhelmed by all the hotel options. I'd like to stay in a hotel that is central and gives me good sense of what Oklahoma City is like. I'd love to know where locals tell their friends to stay when they visit, and why those areas and hotels are special. thanks!

Hello Katie!  Midtown is a neat area for sure.  Jacey and I have enjoyed our stays at The Skirvin Hilton Oklahoma City, very close to mid town, as well as Bricktown.  Mid town is more authentic, while Bricktown is definitely touristy, but many people enjoy visiting.  The Skirvin is interesting in an old, updated building, with a fascinating history.  Even if you don't stay there, it's worth it to go into the bar for a cocktail. Make sure you take time to visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum.  Have a great time and safe travels!

Hi, Katie!

I'm a fan of the Midtown area of OKC... it's an up and coming area with many neat shops and restaurants with very close access to all the fun downtown things! My favorite hotel in the midtown area is the Ambassador Hotel Downtown Midtown, they have a great rooftop bar with wonderful views of the city! A few of my favorite places/restaurants in the area: The R&J Lounge and Supper Club, Bleu Garten, Dust Bowl Lanes and Lounge (Vintage Bowling Alley).

The best hotels are all downtown and it is the best area to stay in if you are on foot. If you are driving Oklahoma City is really easy and quick to get around in. Public transportation and walking infrastructure outside of downtown is terrible. Neighborhoods to visit are The Paseo, The Plaza District, The Stockyards. Good restaurants on west 23rd street and North Western.
