A Winter Getaway at Stoney Creek Hotel

Visit the new hotel and conference center



 



As the new year begins and the winter days grow long, it’s not uncommon for people to start dreaming about a weekend away – somewhere close, somewhere they haven’t been, somewhere they can rest and have a little fun.
 

 

Oklahomans are in luck. The new Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center in Broken

Arrow opened its doors in October, introducing a one-of-a-kind resort-style hotel that has the feel of a lodge with a modern twist. Or, as the Tulsa World reported, “The city’s newest accommodations are more ski lodge than suburban hotel.”

The hotel was created with one thing in mind: giving people a stress-free place to relax. Here, guests will find everything from spacious specialty rooms with massage chairs and fireplaces, to a beautifully appointed bar with a walkout patio, to a unique indoor/outdoor pool, and a 40,000-square-foot conference center – all under one roof.

Located in the heart of Broken Arrow, the five-story hotel touts itself as being unlike the rest, and with good reason. None of Stoney Creek’s 15 independent hotels, which are located in five states, are the same – and that’s by design. The hotel decor is influenced by the local community, and complemented with customized furniture that guests won’t find at other hotels. Many of the pieces are handpicked by owner Jim Thompson and his team, from the leather chairs, to the buffalo head on the wall, to the rough-hewn wood. Every space and every room holds unique items that will catch the eye.

And while guests are there, they just might run into Jim and his wife, or their children and grandchildren. After all, the Stoney Creek hotels are a family affair, and that very much comes across in the way they are designed.


So, for those looking for a road trip, here are a few things to do in and around Stoney Creek Hotel in Broken Arrow:
 

A distinctive wood beam chandelier hangs from the lobby, handcrafted metal sconces line the corridors, a buffalo head protrudes from one wall, and at the heart of it all is a majestic stone fireplace. It’s the ideal backdrop for reading a book, sipping hot chocolate or gathering with friends or family.

 


 

Tired of the same hotel pool experience? Stoney Creek has a unique indoor/outdoor pool and a hot tub, creating the perfect gathering spaces for any age.

Don’t feel like hitting the town? That’s okay, because Stoney Creek’s Blind Buffalo Pourhouse has a collection of local craft beers and wines, as well as a full suite of spirits. Oh, and the ambiance is amazing.

Guests can count on having access to plenty of space, whether they’re in their room or in one of Stoney Creek’s many well-lit, well-designed spots designed for bringing people together. Unlike other hotels where guests are often limited to the breakfast area in terms of extra space, Stoney Creek has dozens of private nooks – including everything from a library to patios to two beautiful lobbies, and a gift shop where guests can buy everything from board games and baseball caps to drinks and snacks.

Stoney Creek hotel is located just blocks from Broken Arrow’s burgeoning Rose District, which features more than 70 shops and restaurants. Check out Andolini's Pizzeria, the new Simplicity Gift Shop or stop into Nouveau - Atelier de Chocolat (the name says it all)! Traveling with kids? Don’t miss Rocket Fizz; they have a huge supply of candy and creative bottled sodas.

Looking for a night out? Nestled in the middle of the Rose District, The Rooftop opened in October 2014. This indoor/outdoor hangout has gourmet pizzas and house-made sangria. The outside heaters during the winter mean guests can enjoy sports on a 144-inch, high-definition projection screen set against the Oklahoma sky.

 


 

Catch a Broadway show, a music concert, recitals and even stand-up comedy nights. Look for details at the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center and other local venues.

Step across the street from the Stoney Creek hotel and into the world of Oklahoma Joe’s. It’s operated by Joe Davidson, who holds the claim to fame of being the World Champion Barbecue Pit Master. And yes, we’re not kidding. It’s right across the street! Or maybe guests are looking for a different experience. Take a drive to Fulton’s Pies & Pies. (Yes, that’s double pies.) Guests can select from sweet or savory fried pies, served hot all day.
