A few weeks ago, I was scheduled to be in Oklahoma City for two days before driving to San Antonio for six days. This trip was part of a week and a half being on temporary duty for the Air Force. I did not plan it for the blog, but I think that I definitely made the most of it.

Booking

I booked my two night stay at the Springhill Suites in Del City located just outside of Oklahoma City. I was able to earn 5,350 Marriott Rewards points for the stay. The total was broken down into the following: 1,900 base, 950 elite bonus, and 2,500 “extra” points (I do not know what the extra points were). I was not able to earn any credit card points since I booked the stay with my military credit card.

Arrival

The hotel was located just off of Interstate 40 in Del City. This was approximately 15 minutes from the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City, which I visited earlier in the year. The buildings surrounding the hotel appeared to be fairly new. They included a Buffalo Wild Wings, The Garage, and a pizza place. Parking at the hotel was complimentary.

Check-In

The front desk was positioned was to the right when I entered the property through the main entrance. There was not anyone ahead of me so I was helped immediately. I presented my credit card and identification. I was welcomed back to Marriott and thanked for being a Platinum Elite. I was offered a drink or points as a welcome gift, I chose the points (maybe these are the extra points above?). Darrin (sp) informed me of the annual Christmas party happening in the lobby. This meant that food and wine were complimentary, while beer was discounted. He informed me that complimentary breakfast would be available in the lobby beginning at 0630. I thanked him for the information and made my way to the room.

Room

I took the elevator up to the 2nd floor, made a left, and the room was a few doors down on the right

The room was a standard King, but it was in better shape than the Springhill Suites in Miami that I visited a few months ago. The room had an open layout which made it feel bigger.

Upon entering the room, there was a kitchenette straight ahead. It included complimentary water and coffee.

To my immediate left was the sofa bed with ottoman and the desk. The sofa bed looked a bit dated (maybe it was the color), while the desk was the perfect size for me.

Just past the desk was the sleeping area. It included a large king bed and TV. The bed was the right level of firmness.  I enjoyed it for the two nights.

The bathroom was directly across from the bed. It included a shower to the left, a sink, and a door less toilet area to the right.

Dining

As I stated earlier, there was a Christmas party happening in the lobby, so I made my way to check out the festivities.

The meal for the Christmas party was fajitas. The meat and sides were served on a counter near the bar. I did not partake in the food, but it looked ok.

I found my way to the bar to have a glass of wine. As I approached the bar, the bartender rolled her eyes and said, “yes?”. I asked for a glass of white wine. She returned a few minutes later with it. As I walked away, she asked if I was going to pay for it…I responded that the manager told me that wine was complimentary. She look puzzled, then responded that she would verify. LOL. Ok. That was one of the weirdest interactions that I have had at a hotel bar.

I lingered in the bar for a bit then returned to my room to get some rest. Before leaving for work the next morning, I decided to check out the breakfast buffet. If you have ever stayed at a Fairfield, Residence, or Springhill then you have seen this setup before. It consisted of turkey sausage, eggs, cereal, pasties, waffles, and fresh fruit.

There was a small Market located to the right of the front desk should you want a small snack or toiletry.

Fitness

The gym and pool were located on the ground floor, just past the lobby, on the right. The gym was bright and all of the equipment looked fairly new.

The pool was a decent size. My favorite thing about the pool was the view of the Oklahoma sunset.

Final Word

The Springhill Suites in Del City was a good surprise. I did not know what to expect given the outdated property in Miami, but it exceeded any expectations. The mostly friendly staff, comfortable suite, and nice gym allowed me to enjoy the stay. I do not know if the bartender was having a bad week, but her customer service was terrible every time I interacted with her. All in all, I would visit this property again.
