The Skirvin Hilton Hotel has been recognized with the 2016 Bright Blue Futures Award for full-service hotels with less than 500 rooms from Hilton Hotels Corporation. It was also ranked number one throughout all Hilton full-service hotels for superior service as measured by guest satisfaction.

The Oklahoma City-based hotel received the award for its dedication to volunteering with youth-serving organizations, their in-kind donations and working with youth through mentorship and training.
