This hotel is a living piece of art. From the architecture itself, down to the furniture used, it really feels as though you are stepping into the early 1900's Frank Lloyd Wright's imagination. This is our second year coming to this hotel for our anniversary. Last year got a cheaper room without a view. This year got a view of the park down town and it is worth the extra money. The room had solid windows on two side with a gorgeous view of the park downtown. The bathroom had a heated floor (which my wife loved... can see that coming to our house soon) and decorative tile, which was very pleasing to the eye.
The only thing we can say we would improve on is there was no vending machine or mini-bar for those late night cravings. Would highly recommend to friends and family.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Historic Park Inn Hotel, together with City National Bank, of Mason City Iowa were designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright as a dual purpose building and completed in 1910. The design greatly influenced architecture in Europe and is as striking today as it ever was. The Park Inn Hotel is the last Wright designed hotel in the world, and has undergone a nearly 20 million renovation; the restoration of the distinctive brick and terra-cotta façade as well as art glass windows has restored the Prairie School building to a functional hotel. The interior, while renovated into a contemporary hotel, has public areas and guest rooms restored as closely to Wright's design as possible. Art glass and much else designed by Wright remains. Public area furnishings are period-style and include reproduction Robie House Lights, reproductions of the Mercury statues Richard Bock and Wright designed for the bank, and reproductions of the barrel chairs Wright designed for the bank directors' room. We invite you to come and stay with us in the center of the many area attractions Mason City has to offer. ... more less
