This renovated hotel is the only one left in the world designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It has tons of charm, and the rooms were comfortable, although a little on the small side. Ask for a 3rd floor room, as there is quite a bit...More

The building is a classic and the folks are friendly in the Mid Western tradition. And the restaurant in the hotel is the BEST meal I have had. Maybe ever. Go even if you have to go out of your way.

My husband treated me to a night's stay for my birthday. The attached restaurant (1910 Grill/Grillé) is extraordinarily delightful, the food cooked so nicely and presented so well, and the service including the docents were bonuses! The architecture is non-pareil and must be seen by...More

This hotel is a wonderful part of history whether a Frank Lloyd Wright fan or not. It is beautifully restored and maintained. Things that can be problematic for guests in old buildings are not an issue here: water pressure is good, water is hot, noise...More
