Hotel: Bradford House | Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
In the heart of Oklahoma City’s 38th Street Preservation neighborhood, Bradford House is a delightful study in contrasts.
It’s also fresh off a four-year restoration, inspired by the owners’ boutique-hotel stays around the globe.
Enter the 1912 all-white mansion—the former home of Renaissance Man William L. Bradford: a cattleman, traveling salesman for school supplies, and county clerk—and pops of color emerge in common areas and the 36 spacious ensuite rooms, split between the historic home and a modern guesthouse, like turquoise-hued walls and pumpkin-orange drapes. Beds are layered with high-thread-count Italian sheets.
Traveling in a group? Some rooms connect to bunk-bed suites, perfect for the little ones.
Baths feature mod luxuries such as a black-and-orange marble sink and green soaking tub. The owners’ love for design shows in vintage furnishings and lightings sourced on buying trips to Italy and France, including Parisian flea markets.
Brunch, afternoon tea, and dinner menus—as well as drinks—from the bar and eatery can be enjoyed on the wraparound porch or café-like indoor setting. (Locals love the seasonal pastas.) Wake up to flaky croissants from the in-house Quincy Bake Shop and coffee roasted by EÔTÉ Coffee Roasters.
