Even though Tulsa is only an hour and a half away, I don’t go very often. My past trips have mainly been limited to driving up for a concert (they always get my favorite bands) and coming home the same day. But after a very last minute shopping trip that left me craving more (I scored the best sale deal EVER) I decided to head back for a real experience of the city.
This time my husband and I decided to stay the night at the Ambassador Tulsa which gave us more time to explore Tulsa. Unfortunately, it ended up being the dreariest, COLDEST weekend. (Remember me shivering in this pic?) I didn’t want to leave our room! Which was fine because we had the most beautiful corner room…
About the Ambassador Tulsa
The hotel was built way back in 1929, and still has the original terracotta ornaments and limestone cornices when it was first constructed. That may not sound very old but don’t forget that Oklahoma only became a state in 1907. The building was originally used as an extended-stay hotel for oil barons and their families while their homes were being build. In keeping with its start, the hotel has maintained the original grand nature of the building with improvements from a modern redesign and all the amenities you’d expect.
The property also has one of the best restaurants in the city… The Chalkboard. We enjoyed some cocktails at the bar before heading out to enjoy a night on the town. Since I had a meeting (followed by a our date night) this dress was the PERFECT outfit. The slit you see can be zipped up or down… so for the meeting it was zipped closed then zipped up as we went out the door!
Coffee in the room then breakfast and shopping
Highlights of the Trip: drinks after check-in at The Chalkboard, dinner at Juniper, and after dinner drinks at Vintage wine bar. Our Sunday morning breakfast at Antoinette and some afternoon shopping in Utica Square.
I must give a big thank you to the Ambassador Tulsa for a lovely stay. We can’t wait to return and continue exploring Tulsa!
