The tour of the building was terrific. The guide was very knowledgeable and even if you are familiar with FLW's work, he points out thing you might miss otherwise. The tour also provides access to areas not available to hotel guests. There was no arts museum or shop - just the tour.

Lovers of Frank Lloyd Wright structures can get a good look at his 1956 Price Tower by reserving a docent-led tour. They are supposed to last 60 minutes but Paula, our docent, responded to our enthusiasm and familiarity with FLW so it lasted more than 90 minutes. She talked about the building's structure, construction, history and importance in the FLW... More

Very ineresting building. Small in scale, went up to the restaurant at the top but didn't eat there as the service was poor & had no artwork on the walls. Didn't look like the photo on the website. The food may have been good but the atmosphere wasn't. Didn't actually see any of the rooms but hey were fully booked,... More

We've seen many Wright houses, but this is his one and only skyscraper, admittedly only 19 stories. It's critical to sign up for the guided tour in order to gain access to the upper floors and also to hear the fascinating tale of the tower's inception (as proposed affordable housing for NYC in the 1920s) and its eventual construction three...

The elevators are the smallest in the world. If they were a ride at an amusement park, they would be shut down.

A gem in the middle of a small town . Lots of history and especially interesting if you are a follower of Frank Lloyd Wright designs . I don't recommend for children or if you cannot climb a flight of stairs . Hallways and elevators are very narrow and small but if you can -, it's a must see !

Recently had a private tour of the Price Tower and it was excellent. Tour guide was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable and shared many facts that I was not aware of.

It was closed when we were in town, and although it is a piece of architectural history, I cannot recommend going out of your way to see it unless you are a big admirer of Frank lloyd Wright. The oddly shaped Price Tower is just a nineteen-story, 221-foot-high tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, that seems out of place, and oddly unique... More

We were just passing through this part of Oklahoma on our vacation when someone mentioned this building. I checked their website and saw a bit of info, but it mostly emphasized the tour of the offices on the 19th floor. We didn't have time to take a tour, but decided to stop in anyway and see what we could. I'm... More

Frank Lloyd Wright designed this. I wouldn't travel just to go see it, but we were in Bartlesville and you can't drive around town with out seeing it.
