History

Imaginatively conceived and elegantly constructed within the top floors of Frank Lloyd Wright's only skyscraper, the high-design Inn at Price Tower welcomed its first guests in April 2003. Since then, it has become one of America's outstanding travel destinations. With its 19 richly designed rooms and two-story tower suites and its spectacular cantilevered restaurant-bar, Copper, Inn at Price Tower has been recognized by Condé-Nast Traveler as one of the "Top 100 New Hotels," while winning the 2003 Business Week/Architectural Record "Good Design Is Good Business" award.

Created by Price Tower Arts Center as both an amenity for the museum and an attraction in its own right, Inn at Price Tower was designed by the acclaimed New York architect Wendy Evans Joseph. Working in dialogue with Frank Lloyd Wright's distinctive spaces, she created gracious and ample interiors that speak to his aesthetic while establishing a distinctly contemporary identity of their own. In the rooms, the Inn's guests discover a custom-crafted décor in which every detail contributes to the striking whole. At Copper, the Inn's bar, they find the culmination of their experience, in a two-story glassed space that dramatically cantilevers over the Oklahoma prairie.

Admission to Price Tower Arts Center is part of every guest package along with other amenities such as high-speed internet connections. Docent led tours through the lovingly restored 1956 interior spaces of Wright's only skyscraper are available at an advanced discounted rate to Inn guests. Special event and travel packages are available.

Group visits are also possible at Inn at Price Tower and are becoming increasingly popular. Groups may even choose to block out all 19 rooms and suites for themselves, as well as renting Copper for a private meeting or event. Extended families, business conferences, wedding parties and "architourism" groups are just a few of those who have enjoyed the use of Inn at Price Tower.

"The creation of Inn at Price Tower truly springs from our mission as a museum of modern art, architecture and design," states Timothy L. Boruff, Executive Director of Price Tower Arts Center. "There are many, many people who long for the chance to live in a Frank Lloyd Wright house. Well, here's a chance to stay in Wright's skyscraper, as reinterpreted on the interior by one of today's most exciting designers."
