It is close to everything in Mason City. All the people are very friendly and the rooms are great. The lighting in the rooms is very modern for being in a 1910 Hotel! It was close to shopping restraunts and bar, so didn't drive only walked.

The history of the hotel is well documented, the room was great and the lobby and other public areas of the hotel are fun to explore. The staff at the front desk was very attentive and helpful. We took the self guided tour of the hotel and wish we would have signed up for the guided version.

This is a Frank Lloyd Wright hotel and his architecture is obvious. There are lots of nooks and crannies and we had trouble finding the breakfast room as it was on the 2nd floor. The lobby shows right away the era of this property. The staff was helpful and I was directed to their private parking area. The breakfast is... More

My son and I stayed here while settling him into a local college. The price is more than the local chain hotels but worth every dime. The hotel provides a written, self guided tour if you are there when a docent led tour is unavailable. The self guided tour was perfect for acquainting us to the FLW features. The staff... More

Great place to stay for a weekend getaway. Very unique and inviting building. Great restaurant. Variety of low impact things within walking distance of the hotel - easy walk to the Glen Rock & Rock Crest neighborhood and the art museum.

We spent only one night at this hotel, but what a glorious experience to stay in the only remaining hotel in the the world by Frank Lloyd Wright! The hotel is a beautiful example of Wright's late Prairie Style with lovely furnishings. We were up-graded to a large room overlooking the park, but I'm quite sure that even without such... More

We found the HPI hotel in Mason City, IA by luck when traveling over the Labor Day weekend. As the only surviving hotel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, it was an interesting find. While the rooms are not very large, the hotel was recently upgraded so the furnishings were modern and very functional. We spent some time exploring and photographing... More

This is a very nice hotel, and Mason City is a delightful place to visit. Of course having been designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, it is old. It has been very nicely renovated, in 2010. But if you are more than 6' tall, you may have to duck here and there around the property. The halls are not designed like... More

The hotel is very well done much better than most restoration venues. Attention to detail is evident. My expectations for dinner in the park inn restaurant were very low, it is understated to say that I was pleasantly surprised. Very happy I made the effort to have the experience of staying here

Fabulous stay at this beautifully restored Frank Lloyd Wright hotel. All the lovely amenities a modern traveler loves along with getting to stay in a historic masterpiece of a building made for a wonderful stay. Book early for the Park View rooms, they are worth the price and do have a meal at the restaurant, it's a treat of the... More
