Making Mayo History
The Mayo Hotel has been making history since opening its doors in 1925.
The 19-story Tulsa hotel was the tallest building in Oklahoma when first built, and the only place with ice-cold tap water and rooms with ceiling fans. The distinctive Sullivanesque style, Art Deco-era hotel instantly became a high society hub in Tulsa, the Oil Capital of the World. Oil tycoons such as J Paul Getty conducted business deals in the lobby and celebrity guests such as Babe Ruth, Charles Lindbergh, Lucille Ball and President John F. Kennedy danced in the Crystal Ballroom.
Over the years, the property fell into disrepair and closed its doors in 1981. For nearly 30 years, The Mayo Hotel stood vacant with many failed renovation attempts. Many feared it was destined for the wrecking ball in late 2009, but after a $42 million dollar historic renovation, The Mayo Hotel reopened its doors.
Making history again, The Mayo Hotel now offers 102 ultra chic guestrooms and 76 luxury residences.
The Mayo is the ultimate luxury destination in the heart of Tulsa’s downtown financial and entertainment districts. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places – yet utterly modern in its upscale furnishings – The Mayo is once again offering a one-of-a-kind Mayo experience with convenient modern amenities.
