PROFILE: Virginia hails from Australia and has been in the hospitality industry for 20 years. Starting in her early teens at a family friend’s hotel, she worked big Italian and Greek weddings as a waitress and ‘got bitten’ by the hospitality bug. “I’ve tried to leave three times over the years and always come back because I miss it!” Virginia started in Food & Beverage in Aussie pubs, restaurants and cafes, later on getting into the accounting and management side of things. “People ask every day why I’m here in Oklahoma City. My husband Nathan is in the Royal Australian Air Force and is working out at Tinker AFB on a 3 year posting. We’ve been here since the end of 2005. I probably say the word Australia
WHAT TO DO: Being new to Oklahoma City and living and working downtown, I definitely have my staple places to visit and recommend. For people who have already eaten at our wonderful restaurant Soleil, other restaurants I love include Nonna’s and Mickey Mantle’s… because they both have formal and informal dining options and of course their food is delicious!
Sights and attractions to see include the Myriad Gardens (especially at Christmas when the lights are on), the beautifully done Oklahoma City Memorial and Museum and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art has an extensive Chihuly collection and their Café is fantastic.
I can’t wait for the new RedPin Bowling Lounge next to Harkins at Bricktown to open…something else fun to do and recommend, along with seeing a Redhawks game, a concert at the Ford Center or taking a ride on the Water Taxi.
There’s always something going on in Oklahoma City – whether it be downtown or a short drive away. Our staff is always ready to offer suggestions, directions and assistance to guests and visitors alike. Come in and see our beautiful hotel lobby and enjoy a snack, cocktail or simply a coffee in Soleil. We’d love to see you!
