Postal Hotel

Oklahoma's NewsOK website reports, "The U.S. Postal Center in Norman, which operates the largest hotel in the state, used to cater only to federal employees and other large groups. Since summer, however, the hotel has opened its doors to the general public."

While the postal center owns the 996-room hotel, it is operated by the Marriott Corp.

Yves Badaroux, the executive manager (shown above) is quoted as saying, "You get Marriott quality at affordable rates, although we’re not branded as Marriott. We think we’re the best kept secret in Oklahoma.”

Because the hotel houses federal postal employees in Norman for training that sometimes lasts up to 12 weeks, "we try to make it as easy and as much like home for them as possible,” Badaroux said in the piece by reporter Jane Glenn Cannon.

According to the article, about 25,000 postal employees from across the United States come through the training center each year.,
