Construction is starting up on a $25 million Embassy Suites at the Oklahoma Health Center — a development first proposed in 2008.

The hotel will feature all of the signature amenities standard at any Embassy Suites, including free cooked-to-order breakfasts each morning, a two-hour complimentary evening reception, two-room suites with a separate living area and private bedroom, two flat-screen televisions and a wet bar equipped with a microwave and mini-fridge.

The new hotel will feature Embassy Suites' “Design Option III” style, which decreases the amount of land needed and offers flexible design through side-by-side suites, shotgun suites and one-room suites, in addition to a contemporary atrium lobby.

The project manager is Dallas-based Prism Hotels & Resorts, which manages 50 hotels and also will operate the hotel when it opens in fall, 2014.

“Prism Hotels & Resorts has a long history with the Hilton brand and we look forward to adding Embassy Suites to our existing portfolio,” said Steve Van, president of Prism Hotels & Resorts. “We are thrilled with the partnership we have with the owners and look forward to being a part of the local community.”
