Located on the West End of downtown and occupying the historic Ford Motor Company Assembly Plant, the 21C Museum Hotel Oklahoma City is a 135-room boutique hotel, contemporary art museum, cultural civic center and home to Mary Eddy’s Kitchen and Lounge.  Its address is 900 W Main Street. 

A $51.5 million project and one of six 21C Hotels, the property is an adaptive reuse of the 95-year-old assembly plant with a contemporary interpretation of the building’s industrial heritage.  21C Oklahoma City offers 14,000 square feet of contemporary art exhibition space open free of charge to the public, plus 23 suites, including the 21C penthouse suite and luxury loft suites.

The design team, led by New York-based Design Architect Deborah Berke Partners and Executive Architect Hornbeek Blatt Architects of Edmond, integrated elements of the automotive plant heritage throughout. The design takes full advantage of the scale of the building with spaces that are open and light-filled.  Lingo Construction was the General Contractor. 

Bentley Flooring installed the carpet in all the rooms, ceramic tile in the bathrooms and restaurant and the wood flooring in the hallways.  "We often think of our flooring as art -- and so our artful installers were right in their element.  We were thrilled to get to play a part in bringing new life and purpose to this historical building and new vitality to this area of Oklahoma City."  Steven Bentley said.
