CHAMPION HOTELS HAS acquired the 354-room Tower Hotel in northwest Oklahoma City.
Champak Patel, founder and CEO of Champion Hotels, based in Oklahoma City, plans a $13 million renovation and a conversion to an Embassy Suites by Hilton. The hotel was licensed as a full-service Marriott until 2013. It has 354 rooms, but the renovation into an all-suites product will reduce that number to 215.
The property was built in 1985 and sits on nine acres. Patel said the project also includes the construction of a 95-room select-service hotel on some of the parking lot. He did not identify the brand.
