After graduation we stopped by the Atherton bar with a large group to celebrate. The staff were very efficient and accommodating. I don't remember the bar before but evidently during the remodel The Atherton bar was added. IT IS BEAUTIFUL and we enjoyed our congratulatory graduation celebration.

So glad you enjoyed the State Room! We were able to add the bar when we relocated our front desk. Thank you so much for the comment Sally!

I have stayed at the Atherton numerous times over the past 20 years. I am an OSU alum and it was a favorite place to stay until the recent renovation. I’ll comment about (1) the layout of the newly remodeled hotel and about (2) management of the hotel. (1) Hotel Layout Several poor architectural decisions were made during the recent...

Scott, Thank you for the response. I will reply to your response point by point. 1)Hotel Layout *One of the biggest reasons for the renovation, in addition to much needed electrical and plumbing overhauls, was to relocate the main elevator and change the entry to allow for a more visible and easy to find drive up. For those customers who...

As an alumni we have stayed here several times before and have not been disappointed. Fitness center very good- full range of fitness equipment and free weights. Rooms very clean and beautiful. Parking is the only glitch, used to park in Student union parking garage for free now either self park for $10 per night or $15 valet. Breakfast buffet...

My room was beautiful. It was very very clean and very warm and homey feeling. The only disappointment was there wasn't a bathtub, but other than that it was a comfortable bed and plenty of space to hang and put your clothes. I love that they offered valet and I also love that if you didn't want to do valet...

We had the pleasure of staying at the Atherton Hotel during America's Greatest Homecoming at Oklahoma State University. I had heard the rooms were small (and they are!) however, they are very well appointed and decorated. The bed and pillows were comfortable and every square inch is utilized. We never felt crowded. The view over the Student Union Gardens was...

Thank you for the kind words Lori. We are very proud and excited to finally be open and able to serve all alumni and visitors to Stillwater. From all accounts, this was one of the best Homecoming celebrations ever held here...then we won the game!! Hope to see you on your next trip Lori. Josh

The Atherton is newly and completely renovated. We stayed the first week after it reopened, so there were a few glitches but it was generally very nice. Our room was large and comfortable, with upscale furnishings and linens. Staff was, for the most part helpful and friendly. Breakfast buffet in the Rancher's Club was very good as well, with several...

As a local, I recently attended a meeting in an upstairs conference room at the newly renovated hotel - which gave me a chance to view all the public areas as well as one of the individual rooms. The decor is comfortably formal with a few tasteful on-trend touches. My husband and I have stayed at some highly rated renovated...

Stayed a few days for parents weekend. The hotel is completely redone, the rooms are quite small and clean but very expensive. My queen room was $349. There was only hot water in the shower, no cold. Internet worked at night but not in the morning. The standout was the cleaning staff, the most courteous I have ever experienced. So...

Pat, Thank you for staying with us and for the review. The room you stayed in is normally $159.95, but during a football weekend our rate goes up. Parking is a major challenge for us. The Student Union operates the parking garage and they charge the $35 for game weekends. We offer valet service to the garage across the street,...

Student operated hotel that had just reopened after an extensive refurbishment that gave it a very rich and warm welcoming atmosphere. As we were dropped off at the door we were warmly greeted by the bellman. We approached the reception area that has 4 large desks in it. One of the students checked us in and told us about the...

We stayed for 2 nights for a family wedding. The new decor is well done and the room was very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the service was pleasant and efficient.

Hello Judy C Thank you for the review. As you can imagine, after being closed for renovation for over two years, we definitely have some kinks that must be ironed out. Please allow me to attempt to address a few of your comments. *We established the bar hours with the idea we would adjust as demand dictated. Up until now,...
