THE BEGINNING

The Mayo Hotel story began nearly a century ago with two brothers – Cass A. Mayo and John D. Mayo. Following the great success of their first venture, a five-story furniture store on Fifth and Main, the brothers decided to try their hand at creating a first-class lodging experience in The Oil Capital of the World.

THE FAME

When The Mayo Hotel officially opened in 1925, it instantly became the social hub of high society. Known for its champagne brunches and martini lunches, it was the place to see and be seen. Notable guests included President John F. Kennedy, Bob Hope, Charles Lindbergh, Babe Ruth, Lucille Ball, Charlie Chaplin and Elvis Presley, as well as revered oilmen J. Paul Getty and Waite Phillips who took up residence for a time. As a result, famous deals were often brokered among oil barons in the opulent lobby, private meeting spaces or Crystal Ballroom, while a plethora of other events – galas, weddings, fashion shows and star-studded receptions – also filled The Mayo calendar. It was not uncommon to see even the biggest names just strolling through the building
