Our History

The late Patrick Hurley was born in Indian Territory, practiced law in Tulsa and had a distinguished diplomatic career. In the 1920s he invested in  and built Oklahoma's first apartment-hotel, the Ambassador which opened on April 6, 1929. 

The luxurious 10-story apartment hotel towered over surrounding single-family residences in Downtown Tulsa. The building was an answer to the housing crisis Tulsa faced at the time. A majority of the occupants were oilmen awaiting the completion of their own nearby homes.

As secretary of war under President Hoover, Patrick Hurley was the first Oklahoma to serve in a presidential cabinet. In World War II, he became a brigadier general and an emissary to Russia. He capped his diplomatic career as ambassador to China.
