Campbell featured in state Route 66 tour

The Campbell Hotel is proud to be included in the Oklahoma State Historic Preservation Office’s new Historic Route 66 Mobile Tour.

The tour, accessible by phone at (405) 415-0626, provides information about 72 historic sites along Oklahoma’s stretch of Route 66, which spans more than 400 miles from Quapaw to Texola and passes in front of The Campbell Hotel.

According to a news release from the State Historic Preservation Office, travelers can learn about the stops on the tour by calling the number listed above, listening to the brief introduction and instructions, and then entering the stop number. Stops are listed in a brochure available from SHPO or at museums and other locations along 66. A map and list of stops is also available online at or online at okhistory.org/route66mobiletour.

Travelers using smartphones will find links to additional information about Route 66 and its properties in Oklahoma. The tour, which features Route 66 museums and properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places was made available through OnCell Systems Inc.

In addition to The Campbell Hotel — stop No. 21 on the tour, listed as the Casa Loma Hotel, which was the original name of the property — travelers will find such historic Tulsa sites as the Sinclair Service Station; the Whittier Square Historic District; Phillips 66 Station No. 473 and the Vickery Phillips 66 Station; the Blue Dome District; the Cyrus Avery Route 66 Memorial Bridge (listed as the Eleventh Street Arkansas River Bridge); Cities Service Station No. 8; and the former location of the now-demolished 66 Motel.

Why not take a few days to explore the Mother Road and her historic treasures in Oklahoma? On Route 66 in the Sooner State, you can eat, sleep, and drive history — and nowhere is that history more vibrant than here at The Campbell Hotel, where you can soak in a 1927 tub, walk across the original hardwood floors, and surround yourself with historic flourishes without sacrificing modern comforts. We even have a Route 66 Suite, free guided tours of Tulsa’s multiple Route 66 alignments, and a 20 percent discount for Route 66 travelers.
