The location was great for what we needed. The girl at the front desk was great. Great view from the roof.
The window ledges were filthy. The windows did not open. There was an air vent out in the hall blowing horrible smelling air right on the room door so we got a face full every time we entered or left the room.
Excellent. Great staff.
We were so very grateful to the desk clerk who took time to help us was when she was busy. I have never been in a hotel room that had so many electrical outlets for recharging all our devises. In addition to many wall outlets, most of the table lamps were fitted with recharging plugs. The bed was unusually comfortable. I usually regard a hotel's immense pile of decorator pillows as "unsleepable," but these were great.
foyer, room ( when we finally got to it), boutique feel :) charming
The service was terrible. Upon arriving- the front desk told me they no longer had the king room with pullout couch that i booked available. "They "gave" it to someone else?"- I asked her. She confirmed thsat my prebooked room was not available and She blamed this on "third party" booking issues sometimes. She then offered me a lesser "double beds room" OR going down to a sister hotel- but would not even offer the $40 less rate to me for to rearrange, go get the car and travel down to the sister hotel.?! My elderly mother had to wait for 30 minutes while I discussed how this could have happened with the Front Desk Staff woman. To no avail- she said my choices were-1. you will just have to take the double bed or 2. go to the other hotel. so we chose the double bed room due to it being 38 degrees outside and the hassle for my mom. I told her i was going to put this ridiculous experience on social media. Then when we got to the double bed room ( that I did not book) because we were too tired to go to another hotel, miraculously, the Staff woman called and said- "oh- I have found a King room for you with a pull out". So we gathered our stuff with my elderly mom and moved. All this took an hour of calls and discussion with the front desk who had insisted that they did not have my king room with a pull out couch available any longer in the first place "so sorry maam, but this sometimes happens with third party bookings". It was a mess and we will not recommend this hotel to anyone due to the ridiculous poor service. although it was a delightfully decorated hotel. I was very surprised at giving my booked room to another, then not even offering for a voucher for later and suggesting i take my elderly mom, our luggage and get the car pulled around and travel to another hotel with a lesser rate but not offering to refund me the difference for the lesser rate. Secondly, insisting there was no more King room with pull out available as I had booked, and then once I explained that I was going to share this on trip advisor- miraculously, they found a room available like i had booked in the first place. So, did the Front Desk Staff woman lie to me as well? It sure seems that way. It was cold, I had my elderly mom with me so we could see the Christmas lights in Tulsa and spend time with my college age daughter, and this experience at 9 pm gave both of us a headache.
Best hotel in Oklahoma
From the moment my car door was opened there was nothing but friendly informative staff and amazing service. Very unique Art Deco atmosphere with all modern conveniences. Excellent bar and restaurant. Must stay while in Tulsa.
In 1925, the 19-story Mayo Hotel was the tallest building in Oklahoma, attracting thousands of celebrities, political figures, and titans of the oil industry. In 1981, the building fell into disrepair, and in 2009, a $42 million renovation returned the old hotel into its former glory. It was hailed as one of the most remarkable transformations of a historic gem.
Located in the heart Tulsa, the hotel is within walking distance of the Cox Business Center, BOK Center and several restaurants, bars, and shops. Oklahoma State University and Tulsa International Airport are also a short distance away. In 2019, The Mayo Hotel has received the title of being the No.5 Best Tulsa Hotel, No.3 Best Downtown Tulsa, and No. 12 in Best Oklahoma Hotels.
The beautifully styled Mayo features 102 luxurious hotel rooms and suites that are well-suited for business and social travelers. The retro-chic atmosphere, bold patterns, and modern décor are unlike any other hotel in Tulsa. In addition, the various suite styles are spacious and thoughtfully appointed with a variety of convenient amenities. Select rooms at the luxury hotel offer incredible river views, downtown cityscapes, or The Osage Hills.
The renovation brought back the prominent clientele at The Mayo, but many guests find the hotel bar the most notable feature. The Penthouse Bar was once the famous Presidential Suite where Elvis Presley once stayed. It is still an elite rooftop location to see and can be seen today providing the only unobstructed 360-degree view in downtown Tulsa. The Mayo also serves full meals at The Boiler Room, which you can then work off in the 24-hour fitness center.
Business travelers, couples, and solo travelers all find their home at the historic Tulsa hotel and make their mark in history at The Mayo Hotel.
