2630 E. 11th Street

— Tulsa's Historic Route 66 —

The Casa Loma Hotel was constructed in 1927 by Max Campbell.
When Route 66 was re-aligned to 11th Street five years later, it
became the first full-service hotel on the Route in Tulsa.
The Spanish Mission-style building was uniquely configured
with eight retail spaces on the first floor and hotel rooms with
in-room baths on the second floor.

Casa Loma, roughly translated as "House on the Hill," was built
on the outskirts of Tulsa where it was less formal than downtown.
This appealed to the oil-field workers, oilmen, and auto-enthusiasts traveling the country for pleasure who frequented the hotel.
Patrons who wished to visit downtown Tulsa without the hassle of
paying for parking and negotiating city traffic could leave their
cars in the adjacent parking lot and take the nearby streetcar
downtown. Ties to Route 66 were so strong that the hotel closed
in 1960, within a year after I-44 replaced the older highway.
Although several retail tenants remained open, the building
experienced a slow decline.

After years of neglect, developers pursued listing in the National
Register of Historic Places in 2010. The rehabilitated Campbell
Hotel reopened in 2011.
