Artesian Hotel and Casino
When looking for a hotel in Chickasaw Country it is important to consider location and amenities. We stayed at the Artesian Hotel in Sulphur, Oklahoma and loved it. Their many amenities and gorgeous architecture made it perfectly suited to our needs. Here’s a recap of our experience!
The Artesian Hotel is rich with history in the heart of Sulphur, Oklahoma, which is just minutes from the Chickasaw Cultural Center. The five-story building originally opened in 1906, and it swiftly became the tourist destination for travelers and even some very notable guests, including John Wayne and Roy Rogers. Additionally the former president and Chief Justice William Howard Taft have also stayed at the Artesian. After a fire destroyed the hotel in 1962, the Artesian Motor Hotel was built in its place. In 1972 the Artesian Motor Hotel was purchased by the Chickasaw Nation and renamed the Chickasaw Motor Inn. This was the first business owned and operated by the tribe.
In 2006, the Chickasaw Motor Inn was cleared away to make room for the new Artesian Hotel. Today, the hotel counts 81 guest rooms with many details expected of a first-class hotel. The Artesian offers a distinctive hospitality experience for travelers by combining timeless style with modern amenities and activities that range from inclusive spa facilities to shopping and even a casino. They also provide state-of-the-art meeting facilities that cater to all types of needs. There are three restaurants at the hotel including The Springs, The Fountain Club, and Bedre Cafe.
