We loved our visit to HPI. We have toured several Frank Lloyd Wright homes and it was so much fun to stay at the hotel. It was a wonderful way to experience what living in some of those historic homes would have been like. The restoration work was beautiful. The room we stayed in was comfortable and luxurious. We ate... More

Total charm of this hotel, finished in 1910 and authentic from tip to toe. Our room, #208, was small, but cozy...charming bathroom, lots of woodwork, rolling floor, authentic furniture, comfy bed and pillos. Such a wordly delight in a mid-sized town! Breakfast was wonderful; check-in a friendly breeze; parking a cinch; everything was just wonderful, a romantic and beautiful retreat... More

As part of a Girl Scout event, 3 girls and 2 adults opted to stay at the Historic Park Inn for 2 reasons: 1) reward points to use from the Stoney Creek Inn hotel chain, and 2) its proximity to Clear Lake, Iowa where the Girl Scout event was held. The outside of the hotel is gorgeous and true to... More

Rented the suite for four of us and it worked well. The details are paid attention to here, mirroring the architecture. I look forward to coming back when the restaurant is open. My grown boys enjoyed the pool table and bar in the lower area. Across the street in the park is where I found my fathers WW II recognition... More

My wife and I spent a night here while visiting friends around Thanksgiving. The architecture and design. The room was very nice and the staff was friendly. We are looking forward to visiting again. If you like Frank Lloyd Wright you will be impressed with this historic hotel.

Having heard for years about the wonderful restoration of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed hotel, we finally found the excuse to make the 50 mile trip up the road for two nights last week. The hotel's location is well signed from both north and south, and has parking on the street for registration purposes. The reception was cordial and welcoming. The... More

We are big fans of Frank Lloyd Wright, and the people who undertook the restoration of one of the only Wright designed hotels in the world did an exceptional job (and the only one still operating). The attention to detail is amazing. It is like traveling back in time - except that you have access to the very best modern... More

Stay at the Historic Park Inn in Mason City, a beautifully-restored Frank Lloyd Wright building, the only extant FLW hotel. The exterior is perfect. The interior needed modern-sized hotel rooms and private baths, so the interior floor plan has been partly re-done, but the decoration is absolutely perfect Prairie Style throughout, both in the pleasant bedrooms, and in the public...

My wife and I traveled to Mason City and stayed two nights at this exceptional hotel for our anniversary this year. The facility is stunning. The hotel restaurant is exceptional, as is the lounge on the lower level. What made the occasion even more memorable was the quality and friendliness of the hotel staff. Special thanks to Brian and Caitlyn,... More

There are not many hotels to choose from in Mason City, and the other alternatives are basically motels. So there is a great need for this nice Historic Park Inn. I understand it is an architectural wonder if you are interested in such things. Good location, good amenities, nice people at the reception, a lot of character. Price was right... More
