Thompson also declined to comment on the lawsuit. He said the hotel, which was scheduled to open earlier this year, is now set to open in November.
When the Aloft hotel was announced in 2010, it was considered the most ambitious of several limited-service hotels being built in Deep Deuce and adjoining Bricktown.
The 135-room hotel is to include an open-air rooftop dining terrace, sports grill, coffee shop, restaurants and boutique retail.
While the lawsuit alleges some of the work done by Dynaspan was “substandard,” New Century's attorney Marvin Laws told The Oklahoman the filing does not allege any structural issues with the hotel.
“To the extent that there were construction issues, New Century, the owner, has taken the steps to make sure they were corrected and built in accordance with plans and industry standards,” Laws said. “We hope it will get complete pretty quick and make sure it's a gleaming example of all the things that are right with Oklahoma City.”
