Statistically, home is the place you're most likely to fall asleep under a running lawn mower or spontaneously combust while trying to slow dance with a running lawn mower. Find a safe haven with today's Groupon: for $72, you get a one-night stay, exhibition and building tour, and breakfast at the Price Tower Arts Center in Bartlesville (a $145 value).
Frank Lloyd Wright's only completed skyscraper, Price Tower beguiles visitors with 16 floors of art galleries, glass-wrapped sleeping lofts, and sweeping views of the Oklahoma prairie. With rooms designed by acclaimed architect Wendy Evans Joseph, the inn fuses the concrete and copper aesthetic of Wright's original vision with a minimalist contemporary flair, ensconcing guests in a novel ambiance, which—like a nanofiber bustle—combines the past and the future with elegant aplomb. All of the chambers feature room-spanning windows looking out on the surrounding plains, custom pillow-top mattresses, and 37” flat-screen TVs. With different décor in each room, the inn treats guests to comfort as unique as a snowflake and half as likely to melt when licked. An expansive, complimentary continental breakfast spreads its fiber-filled wings to slake guests' hunger each morning.
A Price Tower building tour guides guests through multiple floors of art and exhibitions, currently featuring a retrospective of the architect Bruce Goff, objects and drawings by Frank Lloyd Wright, and a collection of models by artist Dennis Oppenheim. The 15th-floor bar, the Copper Room, offers scenic vistas, tasty drinks, and a small menu of delectable plates to enjoy while watching the stately dance of the prairie dog far below.
- This has to be one of the most unique hotel experiences that we have had! So glad we decided to stay here. The rooms are decorated in a way that is modern but also like taking a step into the past. – EmmasMom12, TripAdvisor
