Of all of the mid-century modern treasures we’ve lost in Oklahoma City, I really lament losing the Plaza Tower Hotel the most.  Maybe that’s because I remember driving by it quite a bit when I was a teeny tot and even then appreciating its quirky hexagonal beauty.  Sigh.

I am happy, however, that several images of the hotel remain, and our very own Matt Goad even owns a brochure, which pays homage to the building’s unusual shape in its design, from the hotel’s opening days back in 1960.  I really love it and thought you would, too.  Thanks, Matt, for sharing it!
