Iíve stayed in several Hotel Indigos around the country and always enjoyed them.  I thought of them as more of having an eclectic and cool vibe, rather than luxury.  I think that is the type of hotel best suited for the Blue Dome.  As for the economics, this group has turned a historic building into a hotel and built one from the ground up in two distinctly different parts of downtown, so I will defer to their expertise on whether the economics make sense.

That's good to hear. From seeing in articles "luxury hotel" and quotes from the groundbreaking saying that the hotel fits the district, my vision of luxury wasn't exactly in line with the district.

I also like Indigo, and think it will be a great fit or Blue Dome.  Also agree that it is more boutique-trendy, than luxury.   I've enjoyed ever one I have stayed in.   The Indigo in Atlanta across from the Fox Theater is a pretty cool one, and I have stayed several times there.  Indigo is part of the IHG brand, which includes Holiday Inn, Crown Plaza, and Intercontinental.

"Luxury hotel" like "farm to table" has pretty much lost all real meaning with its profligate use.

That makes more sense then. They announced "luxury hotel" a number of times. Unless this one is planned to be drastically different from others, the "luxury" tag shouldn't have been used. Boutique should have been used instead. Sounds a bit like Aloft style of rehabbing old buildings to make quaint/eccentric hotels. That would make a lot more sense in the Blue Dome.

The article on TW said it "will be no cookie cutter" and has some neat renderings of inside:

An indoor-outdoor rooftop bar that will accommodate 60 to 85 people will be open to the public.

I'm glad the rooftop bar will be open to the public. Tulsa needs more rooftop bars! We have Mayo and what else? Is that it? I guess we have a couple places you can eat at up high, but besides AHHA, not many rooftops accessible by the public.

I went on a Blue Dome tour a few months ago and someone from the Hotel Indigo group was there, getting a feel of the location and history. I think they'll do this right.

El Guapo has seating on the roof but it's pretty closed off so it mostly feels open-air instead of rooftop.
