Oklahoma City Marriott
PROFILE: A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Jimmy graduated from the University of Oklahoma in May. Looking forward to a career in Business Administration, Jimmy has worked at the Marriott during his studies at the OU. The Marriott has been a stepping stone to what lies ahead and has provided him with an education in working with the public.
For three and half years Jimmy has given a helping hand with luggage, group events, suggesting restaurants, provided directions around town, all with a friendly smile and hand shake. Jimmy also was recognized for his service by Marriott and was recipient of the “Sprit to Serve” award.
WHAT TO SEE: “While the season is winding down, our Redhawks – the Triple A affiliate of the Texas Rangers - are in first place in their division. Baseball fans can see the first playoff game here on September 5 (others may be played depending on our success) and then the PCL Championship game at the Brick on Sept. 16.
Guests also have the opportunity to see three great exhibits during September. Roman Art from the Louvre is currently on exhibit at the Museum of Art; the Prix de West exhibit is open through the 7th and is followed by the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association exhibition opening the 27th at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum; and an intriguing exhibit titled Reporting Terrorism is on display at the Oklahoma City National Memorial.”
WHERE TO EAT: “JW”s Steakhouse, located at the Marriott, has a reputation for great steaks. If guests want to explore outside the hotel I suggest Cattlemen’s Steakhouse, which is located in the Historic Stockyards area. Cattlemen’s is the oldest continuously running restaurant in Oklahoma – and has a very unique history.
Other great choices - if you’re in the mood for great Oklahoma BBQ, I suggest Leo’s or and Georges. For a great lunch or casual dinner try the Saturn Grill or Irma’s. For upscale dinner, I suggest The Metro and Coach House on Western.”
