The 117-suite Residence Inn by Marriott, an extended-stay hotel at 202 W. Fifth St., opened Tuesday.

It is owned and managed by Spring Tulsa LLC, an arm of Anish Hotels Group, whose president and CEO is Andy Patel.

“We are pleased to introduce Residence Inn hotels in the downtown Tulsa area,” Diane Mayer, vice president and global brand manager of Residence Inn, said in a statement.

“When on the road for an extended period, our guests need space to spread out, maintain their life’s pace and restore their energy to help them maintain a healthy balance and routine while traveling. This new hotel offers them a seamless blend of modern style and functionality that allows them to settle in and thrive.”

The Residence Inn is the first of four downtown hotels set to open in the coming months.

Hotel Indigo, a $20 million boutique hotel on Elgin Avenue between First and Second streets, is scheduled to open next Tuesday.

A five-story Holiday Inn Express on Archer Street between Detroit and Elgin avenues is set to open in early 2019, and the Hilton-branded Curio, a roughly $33 million conversion of the long-dormant Tulsa Club building into a 96-room boutique hotel, is scheduled to open during the first quarter of next year.

Residence Inn properties are all-suite hotels that offer studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites that feature a well-lit work desk, an ergonomic chair and complimentary high-speed Internet access. Designed for stays of five nights or more, each suite also has a full kitchen, coffee maker, microwave oven and residential-size appliances.

The Residence Inn Tulsa Downtown also has a free hot breakfast daily and 1,256 square feet of meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 50 people.

RI Mix is a social gathering spot where guests can enjoy premium beers. The hotel also maintains a business center in which patrons can fax, copy and print materials. Residence Inn has a fitness room, outdoor swimming pool, full-service bar, fire pit and barbecue area.

A parking area with about 80 spots will be accessible from Sixth Street.
