O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A, Oklahoma O.K.
I have always loved the musical "Oklahoma" and even though I didn't see a lot of haystacks or surreys with fringe, I really enjoyed my first visit to Tulsa, OK.
The CKC Tulsa scrapbook convention was held at the Renaissance Tulsa hotel and convention center. When we arrived we were greeted by a very nice cowboy who asked us if we needed help with our luggage.
Inside the lobby there is a very nice citrus infused "watering hole" - a very kind way to welcome guests who are coming in out of the very HOT weather!
In the guest rooms, the beds are comfy and the pillows are plentiful.
The location is convenient to shopping (Target located next door) and entertainment (the building in the distance -above- is a Cinamark stadium seating theater.)
This lovely hallway (don't you just love those light fixtures!) is the direct link from the hotel guest rooms to the convention area. (Fabulous education and shopping just a few steps away!)
Another very important feature - plenty of comfortable seating areas! (This area includes a lovely babbling water feature and a fish pond.)
And where else can you rest your weary legs while sitting on a "raw hide" covered couch?
darn, Now I have those lyrics stuck in my head:
Move 'em on, head 'em up,
Head 'em up, move 'em out,
Move 'em on, head 'em out Rawhide!
Set 'em out, ride 'em in
Ride 'em in, let 'em out,
Cut 'em out, ride 'em in Rawhide.
At the end of the day when you find yourself famished, the hotel has a nice restaurant that serves some great Mediterranean style dishes.
If you live in or near OK and didn't make it to the Tulsa CKC this year, I do hope we will see y'all "Sooner" than later! ;)
in the mean time...
