I surprised my wife by booking a overnight trip to the Hotel Pattee. Check-in time is 4:00PM, we arrived at 3:45 and our room wasn't ready yet. Courtney at the front desk offered to take our bags and invited us to have a drink in the lounge. A few minutes later, we were told our room was ready and away we went for a great time. I booked a package with the hotel that included a 1-hour massage for two, a bottle of champagne or wine, chocolate covered strawberries, breakfast the next morning, and a Premier King room.
We stayed in the "Dutch" room. It was stenciled and decorated in an old fashioned Dutch manner. The room was clean, bright, and fun to explore all the work the hotel put into the room.
Our scheduled massage was in the Copper Door Spa, located in the lower level of the hotel. Summer was our Massage Therapist. She did an outstanding job!
After our massages, we cleaned up in our spacious bathroom and headed to dinner at the David's Milwaukee Diner. The food prices were reasonable, the service good, and the food was hot and flavorful. After dinner, we enjoyed a bottle of wine near the fireplace in the lobby and listened to live music.
After retiring to our room, we found the bed comfortable and the room warm and quiet for a good nights sleep.
In the morning, we enjoyed a hot breakfast, again with good service and food.
We spent some time walking around the hotel, looking at the many historical pictures and stories of the Perry, Iowa area in the late 19th century. There is also a two lane bowling alley and a full steam room in the lower level as well. We didn't have time to check that out.
The amount of detail and workmanship that went into the hotel rooms as well as the common areas is worth the stay by itself. Combine that with the friendly staff, the good food, and the comfortable accomodations, the Hotel Pattee is surely worthy of a stay.
The 3rd floor is full of themed rooms.
