Southern hospitality, cosmopolitan flair, and culture converge in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Pet-friendly patios and generous green spaces make downtown and the riverfront ideal for travelers cruising into town with their dogs. With music, restaurants, and more, this Route 66 rest stop is a haven for humans (and hounds) of all interests and home to some excellent pet-friendly hotels – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Aloft Tulsa Downtown

Are you and your dog a couple of night owls? Aloft understands that howling into the night is a full-time job, which is why its fitness center and snack pantry are open around the clock. When you’re ready to call it a night, draw the curtains, sink into the soft bed and feel free to sleep in. When you and Rufus are well-rested, take the 20-minute walk to Centennial Park to run in the dog park or walk the trails.

2. Hotel Indigo Tulsa Dwtn-Entertainment Area, an IHG Hotel

Get to know Tulsa’s vibrant arts and culture scene without leaving your dog far behind at Hotel Indigo, one of the best pet-friendly hotels in Tulsa. The Woody Guthrie Center, Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame, and Oneok Field are just a few of the many sights within walking distance of your room. Your bulldog will enjoy walks to Guthrie Green and John Hope Franklin Reconciliation Park almost as much as it’ll like whatever nibbles you order from the on-site restaurant.

3. Residence Inn by Marriott Tulsa Downtown

Business trips in Tulsa are way better with your pet at Residence Inn by Marriott. Catch up on work in your studio room while gazing out at the city. Free grocery delivery is handy for cooking up meals for you and your hungry husky. Once you’re ready to punch the clock, hit the streets with a leash in hand and explore downtown with your dog. Elote Cafe and Catering, a few blocks east, has a dog-friendly patio where Cujo can lap up your fallen taco scraps.

Whether you’re breaking in a new pair of sneakers or a leash, the Ambassador Hotel Tulsa is in a prime position for exploring the riverside. The Gathering Place, a popular green space, is about 2mi (3km) away, with half a dozen other parks en route for you and your dog to explore. If Millie would rather snooze all day, the hotel’s free shuttle will whisk you around town, meaning you’re welcome to have a cocktail or three first at the Chalkboard.

5. avid hotel Tulsa South - Medical District, an IHG Hotel

Your pooch might not know what a premium pillow-top mattress is, but it’ll find out during your stay at the avid hotel Tulsa South – Medical District. The sound-reducing furnishings and blackout roller shades are guaranteed to send it to doggie dreamland the moment its jaw hits the pillow. While the dog sleeps, you’re welcome to grab a free cup of coffee in the lobby and head up to the Woodland Hills Mall for a little uninterrupted shopping.

6. Staybridge Suites Tulsa-Woodland Hills, an IHG Hotel

Close enough to the city to explore on a whim yet far enough out of downtown to enjoy a slower pace, Staybridge Suites insists that you drop your bags, loosen up the leash and settle into a pet-friendly suite with your dog. Biscuit Acres Dog Park and Rose West Dog Park are on either side of the highway – and there’s a courtyard pool and gym back at the hotel if you fancy a little time to yourself.

7. Tulsa Club Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton

You don’t need to be a cool cat to gain entry to the Tulsa Club Hotel. Here, your feline friend is welcome to stay the night with you. It may not like the rooftop terrace, but it can stay curled up in your queen bed while you take in views of the city. Let it nap as long as it wants; the multi-course experience at Chamber will eat up a few delicious hours of your evening.
