Built in 1927, the Max Campbell Building housed the Casa Loma Hotel. It’s been through several incarnations since then. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010 after
restoration efforts saved the crumbling building. In 2011 it served as the Designers’ Showcase to benefit Tulsa schools. Now the Campbell Hotel, each of its 26 rooms was styled by a different decorator in themes ranging from the Cowboy Room to the royal Renaissance Suite.
If you want to wallow in Tulsa history, pick the Art Deco Room, straight out of a ‘40s film – all silver, black, gray and white with a mirrored fireplace, a crystal chandelier and photos of some of Tulsa’s iconic buildings. The Rose Bowl Room salutes the Pepto-Bismol pink Rose Bowl Lanes, a fixture for years on Route 66, which runs in front of the hotel.
The Campbell Lounge, just off the comfy lobby, is a great spot for a before- or after-dinner drink.
