Chickasaw Artesian Hotel

FSB, Chickasaw Nation Join Forces to Recreate an Iconic Oklahoma Hotel

For more than five decades the Artesian Hotel in Sulphur, Oklahoma attracted high-profile visitors from around the country, drawn there by its natural sulphur springs and surrounding scenic beauty. Unfortunately, the historic hotel was completely destroyed by fire in 1962.

When the Chickasaw Nation decided to recreate this unique facility, FSB was proud to assist.

Our firm served as the owner’s representative and quality control experts for the project, resulting in a hotel that closely resembles the original historic landmark, while at the same time incorporating many modern elements.

The new Artesian Hotel boasts 78 sleeping rooms, along with a restaurant, banquet and meeting rooms, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a day spa, exercise rooms and space for retail shops.

Its design retains the distinctive turret-like towers on the front corners of the building, a feature which gave the original hotel a look very unique in southern Oklahoma. The lobby is also reminiscent of the famous original, which included many items from the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair.
