We took a short notice July 4th trip to Iowa for some bike riding. The best place to stay in central Iowa turned out to be the Hotel Pattee in Perry. The owners have done a magnificent job of decorating and revitalizing this property. All the rooms have themed decorative schemes such as the Louis Armstrong suite or the American... More

This is hotel is very old, and has a lot of charm and history. Each of the 40 rooms decorated in a different theme, and is well appointed. There is even a working bowling alley (2 lanes) in the basement! Staff is helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. The one, and minor, criticism is that the lighting in the rooms is low.... More

The hotel is located in the main street of quiet and pleasant city of Perry, which means noise will never be an issue. The hotel itself is decorated in the style of the first decades of the 20th century. and all the rooms/suits are themed, from solemn and quaint like a grandma's house, to the riot of color and shapes...

A decorative interesting hotel in the heart of a town called Perry in Iowa. Based on its history of being a railroad town, the interior decor strongly depicts this. The hotel staff are very welcoming and I loved the wood panelling around the walls with the painted pictures and murals Looks very authentic and you feel like you have taken... More

We spent the night here on our last night of our vacation while our kids were at camp nearby. It was a wonderful way to end our trip. The hotel is sooo pretty but not too stuffy. I didn't feel out of place in jeans and a t-shirt. There seems to have been no expense spared on this beautiful place.... More

Stayed one night for a state retreat. Had heard a lot about this hotel and finally got a chance to visit myself. My room was the RAGBRAI room and every corner of the room "screamed" cycling down to the light fixtures. Lots of great photographs too. I had a chance to see several other rooms as we did a progressive... More

Although this was our first stay, we were received as friends. From the desk clerk to the restaurant waiter/waitress, we were met as though we were their best customers. The hotel is spotless and inviting. The food is superb.

Lunch good, service average, but beautiful hotel and restaurant. The BEST Sweet Potatoes Fries Anywhere. Decor in the restaurant was charming, as was the entire hotel. A great place for a getaway and wonderful meal

We had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Pattee while in the area. Though accommodation options included hotels in nearby Des Moines, we chose to stay here, and are SO glad we did! This property has been beautifully maintained and preserved. Unique architectural features are throughout and are worth a wander around the various spaces; in addition there are... More

We like old architecture and historic hotels. This fit the bill. It is a beautifully restored old railroad hotel. The furniture and artwork are delightful. The Prairie Mission style suits us. We stayed in the William Morris Room. Thank you Amanda for putting us in there! Also, a shout out to Courtney at the front desk for being so lovely... More
