KEY Oklahoma City

Demetrius Evens
Embassy Suites Airport

PROFILE: Demetrius has been the “man of all seasons” at the Embassy Suites Airport for nearly three years. His responsibilities include bell stand, front desk and shuttle driver.

A native of St. Louis , Missouri , Demetrius was a police officer for a period of time, managed retail stores, and then became involved with hotel security. He moved to Oklahoma City to follow the love of his life – which didn’t work out as planned. He stayed, however, and took a job at Foley’s department store. That’s where he met Eugene Seyler, General Manager of Embassy Suites, who was looking for someone to help with many facets of the hotel. Demetrius fit the bill.

WHAT TO SEE: “I want our guests to feel the real Oklahoma City. I suggest visitors see the resurgence in our downtown by visiting Bricktown. I also suggest they experience the Oklahoma City National Memorial, National Cowboy Museum and the Oklahoma History Center .”

WHERE TO EAT: “I love fresh oysters on the half shell. If that is something a guest is interested in – I send them for the best - Trappers Fish Camp on Reno near Meridian and Crabtown in Bricktown. Both restaurants are locally owned by Paul Seikel and are great choices for seafood.

If guests are looking for a great Sunday Brunch – I highly recommend Rococo, at NW 28th and Pennsylvania. Rococo is a great restaurant 7 days a week – super crab cakes - and their Sunday Brunch can’t be beat.”

NIGHTLIFE: “I encourage guests to enjoy some of OKC’s local hotspots that feature live music. One of our newest nightclubs is the 51st Street Speakeasy, located just off Western and NW 51st, where the usual suspects turn up. The pub is located in a house that was built around 1903 and features a great lounge, smoking bar, a complete second floor with lounge and banquet space, and even an outdoor patio. Another new hotspot is the Prohibition Room, located in the Golden Dome Building at 23rd and Classen. I also always suggest my favorite place to enjoy a cigar - Maker’s Cigar and Piano Bar, located in the Oklahoma Hardware Building in Bricktown.”


A concierge (pronounced kon-'syerzh) is the closest thing you can find to your own personal assistant in a fine hotel. The concierge in your hotel is there to make your stay in Oklahoma City more enjoyable and hassle-free. A Concierge can do more than call a cab.

  • Obtain dinner, events reservations and tickets when and where no one else can.
  • Set up itineraries for visiting business people.
  • Make suggestions for and help plan sightseeing by bus, car, driver, limousine, or on foot.
  • Provide access to secretarial and office services, including faxes, telexes and photocopies.
  • Arrange hair, barbering, nail and beauty appointments.
  • Call ahead to a store and have several outfits set aside if you guess wrong about the Oklahoma weather, then have your selections delivered.
  • Help families relocating to Oklahoma City obtain information on neighborhoods, schools, and homes.
  • Help with questions pertaining to other cities - you have a friend anywhere in the world where there is a Concierge.

The Concierge has grown to be a trusted resource in the finest hotels in the world. However, don't just take our word for it. Discover what a concierge can do by simply asking for assistance. You'll find that a concierge is capable of meeting the needs of every guest, no matter how discriminating. Concierges spread good will. Call a Concierge - they won't let you down! As the #1 visitor destination city in Oklahoma, Oklahoma City has lots to see and do and whether you visit the Cowboy Hall of Fame, Omniplex, National Bombing Memorial, our beautiful museums, or stroll along the River Walk in Bricktown, the concierge staff at your hotel is there to guide you.
