Carlson’s Park Inn Hotel brand launches in Oklahoma

TULSA, OKLAHOMA Carlson announces the opening of its first Park Inn in Oklahoma at Tulsa International Airport.

The opening of the 172-key Park Inn Tulsa Airport is part of Carlson’s Ambition 2015 growth strategy. It is the seventh Park Inn hotel to open in the United States.

“Park Inn is a leading, award-winning midscale brand in Europe and the Middle East and has great potential in North America,” says Steve Mogck, executive vice president for Park Inn. “The strong visual identity and contemporary design of the brand provide a fresh approach to the mid-scale segment.”

The hotel is managed by Hospitality Management Co. It was previously flagged as a Radisson Inn property. “The conversion to Park Inn was seamless, and we are looking forward to providing the best night’s sleep in town for a midscale brand,” says Leo Spriggs, president and CEO of Hospitality Management Co.

The 100 percent non-smoking hotel features an outdoor heated pool, a fitness center, business center and free Wi-Fi access. Breakfast and lunch are available in the hotel’s restaurant and dinner is available in the lounge. The hotel has 7,200 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, audio-visual equipment, catering, and a professional meetings and events team.

In 2009, J.D. Power and Associates rated Park Inn number one in Europe for guest satisfaction in the midscale segment. With 111 hotels in operation globally and 57 hotels currently in development, Park Inn provides affordable accommodations that are efficient, uncomplicated, practical and comfortable.
