This is a hotel for the history lover or budding architect in your family. Built in 1922, in the heyday of Tulsa’s oil boom, the Atlas Life building is a shining example of the Art Deco architecture that Tulsa is known for. There is no pool here, which may disappoint younger ones in your family, but older children may appreciate the rich history and unique experience this hotel offers. Book a room on the seventh floor to see many original features of the 1922 construction and keep your camera handy to share the brilliant details of the hotel lobby. It’s a fun building, but only you know if it’s right for your family.

Clean, friendly staff and, according to my wife, the pillows smelled very fresh! Great area to walk in, we attended a concert at the BOK Arena and walked to and from. Will I stay there again? Most certainly!!
We’ve been on the road for nearly two weeks traveling Route 66 when we stopped at the Courtyard in Tulsa. It’s a great location for many of the attractions. While the young man at the registration desk was not too helpful in suggestions for the city, Ric who works as a greeter/valet/concierge at the front door was extremely helpful! He advised us about free street parking on the weekends, a great restaurant for dinner and the free trolley around town. We took his advice and saved on parking, had a great dinner close to the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the trolley ride with a group of fun people!
Thank you Ric for making our stay at the Courtyard by Marriott so enjoyable for these road weary travelers!
