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

I travel for business and try to enjoy the culture of the areas where I have to travel. Historic Park in in Mason City, IA is a treasure! This is a must see stop if your even close. 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

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
