You have to want to go to Mason City, Iowa. It's off the beaten path, although when the Park Inn and adjacent bank were built in 1910 it was an industrial mecca. Money brought Frank Lloyd Wright to north central Iowa near the end of his Prairie period. Now, more than a century and $20 million later, the Park Inn... More

My husband and I travelled from Chicago to stay at this hotel after reading about it in our local paper. Our stay was definitely worth the trip! The restoration of this hotel is beautiful, the staff is wonderful and it's a must for any fans of Frank Lloyd Wright. We visited both the 1910 Lounge and the restaurant and both... More

We loved the room at the Historic Park Inn. The room was big enough to host two friends for wine before dinner. The room came with a Keurig, king size bed, fluffy towels, and a walk in shower with a good showerhead. Hotel itself is worth a tour and has some great sitting areas for relaxing.

We loved our stay at the Park Inn. Had room 330, beautiful windows on three sides, lovely vow of the park. Nicely appointed, beautifully furnished. A must stay for those who love the Prairie style. Highly recommend the public areas of the hotel - the piano plays in the mezzanine and the 1910 smash cocktail in the lounge is not... More

I will recommend this hotel to everyone I know. The staff was so friendly and helpful. It is so unique and beautiful, starting with the lobby and every room you see. We had dinner that evening at the 1910 Grille. The food, service and beverages were outstanding. If we ever decide to venture up to Mason City again, I would... More

It was very special to stay in a building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. He was commissioned to design a building that contained a hotel, a bank, and law offices. It was fascinating to see how he pulled that off. The rooms were cozy (10 feet by 10 feet) but that is a hallmark of FLW. We went out of... More

We can say unequivocally that in every respect from the food and service in the 1910 Grille and breakfast each morning, the lounge, the facility, and the helpful staff, our stay was first class. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Just staying in the last existing Frank Lloyd Wright hotel was a real treat. It is a beautiful hotel!

This hotel was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright early in his career, before he ran off to Europe with his next door neighbor. It is beautiful!!! Our room was spacious, and a great value. This hotel is beautiful!!! Lots of interesting design elements in the room and in the public spaces. Let me repeat, this hotel is beautiful!!! The staff... More

This was our second visit to the Historic Park Inn (or HPI), and the property has even improved from our first visit two years ago. Both times, we asked for rooms on the park, but of course they were both different due to the hotel's unique nature. The re-do was masterful in keeping the look and feel of the a... More

Having family from Mason City, I've heard all the stories of th Park Inn. So I enjoy the irony of the pool tables in the pub area as at one time, the Park Inn was a billiards hall. Wonderful attention to detail, down to the heated bathroom floor and incredibly comfortable beds. I wish the resturant would've been open while... More
