on the 200 room Hampton Inn & Suites – Oklahoma City / Bricktown
CITY, OK., April 19, 2007 – Raymond Management Company, a Madison, WI-based
multi-brand hotel company, and Marsh Pitman, an Oklahoma City real estate
developer, have jointly announced the groundbreaking of the new Hampton
Inn & Suites – Oklahoma City / Bricktown in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Scheduled to open in summer of 2008, the upscale mid-priced property will
feature 200 guest rooms and suites.
Raymond Management Company selected Oklahoma City, Oklahoma-based Oscar J. Boldt Construction to provide comprehensive construction services. Gary Brink & Associates, Inc. of Madison, Wisconsin is providing the architectural services for the property.
The 9-story hotel is located in the vibrant Bricktown area of downtown Oklahoma City. Bricktown is a former warehouse district that has been converted into a commercial and entertainment area and is connected to the city’s central business district. The hotel is adjacent to AT&T Bricktown Ballpark, which is home to the Oklahoma Red Hawks, a Triple A baseball affiliate of the Texas Rangers major league baseball team. Guests staying on the hotel’s upper floors will have game views directly over the “The Brick’s” left field bleachers and into home plate. Also within walking distance of the hotel’s front doors are Ford Center Arena, the Cox Business Services Convention Center, the mile long pedestrian Bricktown Canal, as well as numerous restaurants, nightclubs, and retail establishments. The hotel is bordered by Interstates I-40 (east/west) and I-235 (north/south).
“We are delighted to bring this premier hotel value to Oklahoma City travelers, especially to the exciting entertainment center of downtown known as Bricktown,” said Jeff Raymond, president of Raymond Management Company. “Guests will appreciate the successful blend of high level of comfort and value-added service offerings provided by our hotel. We are proud to operate under the Hampton Inn & Suites flag.”
