It's the Art of Escape, the Art of Romance and the Art of Rekindling a 100-year-old dream. Named for an artesian well that was discovered on the property during construction, the original Artesian Hotel opened in 1906, decked out in furnishings straight from the St. Louis World's Fair. A luxury hotel enjoyed by everyone from celebrities John Wayne and Roy Rogers to political figures like President William H. Taft, it also served as a summer residence for Oklahoma’s first governor, Charles Haskell.

The Artesian Hotel remained in operation until it was destroyed by a fire in 1962. What stands in its place today is a true-to-the-original, luxurious redesign of a historic classic. Each of the hotel's 81 rooms features old-fashioned elegance with modern amenities like free wi-fi and flatscreen TVs.

But the Art of Relaxation doesn't end there. Play all day in the indoor/outdoor sparkling pool, or take a load off with a massage, facial and steam at the on-site Sole'Renity Spa. Enjoy some retail therapy with the Artesian's shops, including high-end boutique Luxe and the popular Spice and Tea Exchange.

Then there's the Art of Winning at the Artesian Casino. Join in classic table games like Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em and blackjack, or choose from a variety of popular electronic games that are sure to give you a thrill.

After a day of excitement, devour a delicious meal at Springs at The Artesian, where the homestyle-inspired fare, creatively presented and generously proportioned, is served up in a high-end atmosphere that seats 140 people.

And with the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, Lake of the Arbuckles and Chickasaw Cultural Center just miles away, it's an easy decision to extend the weekend and stay a little longer.
