Tulsa is the cultural and artistic city in the state of Oklahoma. It offers visitors world-class art, plenty of theater and musical productions, and a rich cultural heritage. Its topography is greener than most cities in the state, and its skyline is full of Art Deco styled buildings that rival those in larger cities around the country. The Arkansas River divides the city in half, and the surrounding parks offer guests plenty of places to escape and relax. From budget hotels to rustic inns, these are the best places to stay in Tulsa.
Best Budget Hotel: Courtyard Tulsa Woodland Hills
The Courtyard Tulsa Woodland Hills is one of the many hotels in south Tulsa. It is located near Woodland Hills Mall, approximately 13 miles southeast of downtown. Spacious and spotless rooms and suites, friendly service, and prices that start at $89 a night on weekends make this a bargain deal for price conscious travelers.
Best Hotel for Business: Ambassador Tulsa
Impeccable service is key to many business travelers and no one does it better than the Ambassador Tulsa. From the moment you step out of the airport landing, a car service will take you to the hotel free of charge. Turn down service is also available upon request and the concierge is available 24/7. As a bonus, the hotel has a library where guests can relax before a big meeting, complimentary high-speed WiFi, free on-site parking, and free bottled water. Nightly rates begin at $189.
Best Boutique Hotel: The Campbell
The 26 individually themed rooms designed by local designers are what set The Campbell apart and make it Tulsa’s best boutique hotel. Located on historic Route 66, the hotel has managed to keep many of the building’s original architectural designs. Room settings go from wild to funky, but all of them feature some connection to the culture and heritage of Oklahoma. Complimentary parking and continental breakfast are included in the rate, which begins at $139 per night.
Best Bed and Breakfast: The Cedar Rock Inn
The Cedar Rock Inn is not your typical bed and breakfast establishment because it offers so much more than a nice room, comfortable bed, and a freshly prepared breakfast meal. Each of the five suites is thoughtfully decorated with rustic themes and features exquisite wood furnishing handmade from locally grown trees. The inn itself is also part of Tulsa’s heritage. The original house was built at the turn of the 20th century and was occupied by a prominent Native American family.
Best Airbnb Listing
Tulsa has limited Airbnb listings; however, this well-reviewed studio with a private entrance near Utica Square is worth considering. It offers a queen-sized bed, private bath, and private entrance to the room for rent. The hosts, Tomas and Tina, also offer their guests complimentary pick-up and drop-off, should you need it. The house is in one of Tulsa’s upscale neighborhood and is part of the many historic listings within the area.
