The Holiday Inn Express at Bricktown began, in concept, as an adaptive re-use of an existing dairy building in the heart of the historic Bricktown district. The new five-story hotel sits comfortably within its historic Bricktown neighborhood as a destination hotel.
The design for the hotel complies with Intercontinental Group Hotel standards. The stringent design standards of the Bricktown Design Review process mandated a brick facade, yet the hotel structure itself is cost-effective. The design for the building envelope draws inspiration from the surrounding brick warehouses as well as the former dairy building that was demolished to make way for the new hotel.
Within the building’s one-square-block area, designers were able to incorporate a 124-room, 16,700-square-foot hotel complete with guest suites, food service, meeting areas, fitness center and outdoor pool and recreation areas. The finishes and proportions of the final product express the quality of the Holiday Inn Express brand.
