My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Historic Park Inn. We are Frank LLoyd Wright enthusiasts, so staying at the HPI was the reason for our trip to Mason City. Booking the room on-line was easy once we were able to find availiability for a 2 night stay. We were later told by the front desk that occupancy is at 90% year round, so plan ahead and be flexible with your travel dates.
The rooms have all the modern conveniences, yet remain as true as possible to the true spirit of FLLW. Unexpected, yet appreciated, modern elements were a large flat screen TV, a coffee maker and a small frig. A continental breakfast--coffee/tea, juice, yogurt and bagel/muffin--was complimentary.
This was a wonderful experience to add to our "collection" of FLLW venue visits.
- 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
