Beautiful historic building. The last Frank Lloyd Wright hotel in the world. From the minute you walk in the lobby you feel the richness of days gone by. I enjoyed the restaurant very much too. My room was a little small but had beautiful windows and the bathroom was excellent. My coffee maker did not work and so they brought... More

My husband and I stayed one night here at the end of Feb 2015. This hotel is awesome. We got a decent price and booked directly with the hotel. I was impressed with the service at the hotel. A few days before our stay we got an email saying they were excited to have us, and after our stay we... More

I really looked forward to staying here while staying in Mason City from M-F. I had read a lot about it and so I booked my room. The lobby is interesting, with a really low ceiling at the reception desk. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. I asked a friend about the design of the place and he mentioned... More

Staying at this hotel should be on everyone's bucket list. The foundation did an excellent job restoring the hotel to original design but also incorporating just enough modern amenities. Can't wait to bring the kids here.

We were attracted to this hotel as it is the only hotel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright . The staff was pleasant and when my husband wanted coffee(in the middle of the night) the staff delivered a full pot of coffee. Make sure to make reservations, in advance, at the hotel and 1910 Grille, which is inside the hotel. The... More

It was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and has been, kept and restored as if it was built quite recently. The hotel... More

Very interesting architecture. Charming hotel! And, the staff are always pleasant and accommodating. A little pricy, and some rooms are small. But if you want a hotel with presence, and want more of an experience (rather than just a place to crash), this is a great option. Ask for street side to get the best view--looks across the street to... More

Enjoyed Girl Friends weekend in Mason City. Stayed in one of the Suites. Very roomy and large bathroom-shower. Nice continental breakfast and enjoyed the large table room for good conversation each morning. Staff very friendly. Went thru Music Man Museum and toured his childhood home. Again everyone very nice. Would highly suggest the 2 restaurants we ate at. "The Quarry"... More

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
