Always intrigued by history and the glamour of old, restored, lodging we decided to celebrate our anniversary at the Hotel. Our room was the Welsh room on the 3rd floor. It was a cozy, nicely decorated room with antique furnishings. The hotel has a vintage 2 lane bowling alley, a fitness center, and a spa in the lower level. The... More

We just finished the weekend at a charming boutique hotel northwest of Des Moines. Hotel Pattee is a wonderful small hotel complete with bar and restaurant in Perry, Iowa. With an area history of the Railroad, the hotel uses the Railroad to decorate areas of the common spaces. Of course, being in Iowa, small town life is also highlighted. The... More

We spent a night there and stayed in a lovely themed room. Dinner was delicious. There was music in the lobby in the evening which was a very nice touch. We're looking forward to going again. Most of the rooms were busy, so call ahead to make a reservation.

The Hotel Pattee has character worthy of a cosmopolitan center but is in little Perry, Iowa, close to the Bridges of Madison County. We made a weekend trip to experience this classy place, ate in its restaurant, and shopped in the nearby boutiques. Each room is decorated in its individual style. Ours was fashioned after the cartoon characters of Alley... More

Our son and his fiancee were married here in late March 2015. We hosted a rehearsal dinner on a Friday and the wedding was on Saturday. A wonderful time for family and friends all the way around! Great rooms, service, food and ambiance. Must admit I had my doubts which were totally vanquished. Thank you for beautiful rooms, fantastic service... More

As 1st time guests, we stayed in the Farmhouse Room on 04-03-15 & had a really nice time. We enjoyed the spa tub & the room was very cozy in a quiet corner of the 2nd floor. Everything was super clean in the entire hotel! We didn’t use the bowling alley, but it looked fun. The hot tub was being... More

Thanks for staying with us and thanks for such a great and detailed review. To you point about advertising, I couldn't agree with you more. Unfortunately, we can only afford to do so much. Word of mouth and referrals from great guests like yourself is our best form of advertising. TripAdvisor has been a great place too! Regarding packages, we... More

It was a 6 hour drive for us to arrive at the Hotel, and it was so nice to have a room with a jet tub waiting for you. Be prepared to pay for the custom designed rooms. I wish they had discounts for return customers. That would be an added incentive to return more often.

A lovely jewel in rural Iowa -- the Hotel Pattee is truly unique. A top-quality modern restoration of an old-fashioned Main Street hotel. The amenities are very good, and the service is competent and friendly. We will revisit this great Iowa place.

We stayed in the very interesting "Bohemian" room. From the Dvorak music and the delicately decorated eggs in shadow boxes on the walls to the delightful painted cabinets, closets and drawers and the Czech books by the window seat, the details made the room cozy and fascinating. We enjoyed the Bohemian music on the CD player on the nightstand and... More
