We chose this hotel for our wedding anniversary get-away, and were not disappointed. As admirers of Frank Lloyd Wright's work, it was great to finally be in a building where we were no longer behind a velvet rope, now able to actually sit in those uncomfortable-looking chairs and judge for ourselves. The entire hotel is just a delight to look...

We are a family with deep roots in Mason City and traveled from many places to celebrate our Mother's 80th Birthday. The hotel and catering staff did a superlative job on all elements: envisioning how to best use each unique space for each part of our celebration, working with the chef to provide a beautiful meal using the 1910 Restaurant...

An amazing Frank Lloyd Wright hotel on the square in the middle of Music City. The hotel is gorgeous. Take the time to walk through and view the extra spaces. There is a study and game room. A veranda upstairs looks out over the square. While in Mason City visit the Stockman House, a FLW home in the area open...

As a lifelong Midwesterner, I've always been fascinated with the few structures remaining that were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. If you know anything about his emphasis on simple geometry and horizontal lines in his architecture, you'll love this hotel. And yes, it is "historic," so don't be surprised if the floors "creak" a bit as you walk -- I...

Had the special opportunity to spend several nights at this renovated historic treasure. It is a testament to both Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural genius and to the vision and commitment of the entire community. We stayed in a corner room that would have been part of the mixed use offices above the original bank. The only complaint we had was...

From top to bottom this was a great hotel experience. Historic location and fabulous accommodations. Worth going out of your way to find. Who would have known a classic Frank Lloyd Wright design would be in Mason City. Service was top notch as well.

This place is right up with the St. Paul Athletic Club Hotel. Old meets new - a whole different hotel experience. Historic Park Inn is a Frank Lloyd Wright designed hotel, and it is worth staying at. Even if you don't care about architecture, this hotel is amazing. They have an amazing lounge area and a player-piano on the 2nd...

The stay was amazing. The eclectic architecture made the space both welcoming and beautiful. The staff at the 1910 Grill were knowledgeable and attentive. We will definitely stay at this hotel again and soon.

We went to see the architecture of Mason City, specifically Frank Lloyd Wright. We spent time at the Historic Park Inn Hotel both inside and out on the tour and self exploration. As FLW fans, it's a great place to visit.

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
