Travelers will soon see construction of a new hotel begin at Tulsa International Airport. Demolition is underway to make way for the new hotel.
The Clarion Inn has been vacant for about a year and a half after it closed in March 2020.
Promise Hotels is a Tulsa-based hotel management company and owns the hotel’s new location.
Pete Patel of Promise Hotels said they have a lot of work ahead of them as they demolish the existing Clarion Inn and plan to open a new hotel.
âI hate to see it go away, but we’re going to have a brand new hotel on this site within the next couple of years and we’re very happy to be serving our customers with a new product,â Patel said.
Since the closure of the Clarion Inn, people who wish to stay on the airport property have stayed at the Garden Inn across the street.
Johnathan Gobbo of TIA said there is a need for a second hotel on the property and they are excited about the changes.
âTravel is picking up and of course, with our great weather in Oklahoma, you never know if you might get stuck in Tulsa. So having hotels there makes a huge difference, âsaid Gobbo.
Patel said construction crews should have cleared the land within the next 30 days. Then they will start plans for the new hotel which is expected to open by spring 2023.
