Artesian Hotel opens



Nick Starns, hotel general manager, said The Artesian features nine room types and a large lobby on each of the three floors with guest rooms. He formerly worked at the Chickasaw’s WinStar World Casino Hotel in Thackerville.

“This is truly a unique property,” Starns said, noting the historic photographs, Chickasaw artwork, tin ceilings, lobby columns and wide hallways. “This has a feel of the past with lots of amenities.”

Those amenities include The Sole’renity Spa which features whirlpool baths, manicure and pedicure services, private and couples massage therapy rooms, separate male and female dressing rooms and lounges. Little Soles is the children’s special event area with spa, catering and entertainment packages.

Retail shops include Bedre’ Cafe, Chickasaw Tobacco Store, Essentials, Little Soles, Luxe at The Artesian, Pinkitzel, Smith’s Okie Twister and The Woodland Emporium.
