An Iconic Transformation
The National, Autograph Collection transforms approximately 190,000 square feet of the 1931 First National Bank office tower into an inspired hotel with 146 guest rooms. The restoration is part of the First National Center project and includes the preservation of murals, decorative painted ceilings, stone columns, cast stone, metal finishes, vault doors, and safes.
The building has been widely considered one of Oklahoma City's top architectural treasures. But more than a building, it tells the story of the city's tremendous growth and its arduous challenges. Oil drilling, the banking industry and even the history of Oklahoma are all woven into the fabric of The National, captured in stone, metal and murals.
