Renaissance Hotel, Oklahoma City

Listed under

The Renaissance, a great four star hotel in the centre of Oklahoma City, was the first non-motel accommodation I stopped at whilst driving Route 66.

The combination of great location, friendly, helpful staff, and a beautifully designed atrium made my one night stay a total pleasure. As far as design/style is concerned it couldn't have been in greater contrast to the range of motels I had experienced up to that point. However, the modern design and cosmopolitan vibe didn't prevent it from being both warm and welcoming; the staff at the valet desk were more than happy to offer advice to out-of-towners.

The room itself was fairly standard fair but clean and comfortable, while the breakfast buffet offered a great choice. I'd say the only negative point would be the $20 valet parking (which can actually be avoided by parking in the adjacent and connected Convention Centre).

We spent the night a short walk away in Bricktown where we ate at a great Mexican restaurant called Abuelo's and nursed a few beers whilst watching a live blues band in The Biting Sow - a wonderful evening.

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
