I have stayed in hotels in spectacular locations, great history, courteous service, and amazing restaurants, but I have never stayed in a better hotel than the Historic Park Inn Hotel. After you check in, take time to explore the hotel. Every space is well thought out from the Ladies Parlor to the Law Library. Be sure and visit the Skylight Lounge while the sun is out. The stained glass ceiling is stunning. In the evening, start your night in the basement lounge. The drinks are fantastic, the bartenders are attentive, and the flatbread pizzas are great. Follow that up with dinner at the 1910 Grille where the food and service are five star. Is Mason City a place you would think to ever visit? Probably not, but the city has more than you think (including an art museum) and your visit to the only Frank Lloyd Wright hotel left in operation will be an experience you will never forget.

- 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
