We were excited to spend three nights at this beautiful old hotel, even though it is a bit pricey. I needed assistance wheeling my husband into the facility, but there was no help by the night crew. A door stopper would have helped, even with getting into the room. After loading up the hotel luggage cart, we had to park...

Hotel Pattee is a beautiful and unique boutique hotel that provides everything for a pampered week-end! The history is evident in every detail of this hotel. The restaurant is amazing as is the Copper Spa. The town is charming and even has a Ben Franklin. Thank you for keeping this gem going and I can't wait for my next stay!

I had been at this hotel years ago under different management and was thrilled to see it remains stellar! Even the hallway nooks are furnished with beautiful mission style furniture. The lobby is filled with great woodwork and original art. The rooms are creatively decorated in themes that reflect the cultures and people who settled this area of Iowa. The...

This was actually my third stay at the Hotel Pattee. This time was just as delightful; as the first. A different room each visit makes it an adventure in itself. We had the best meal at our banquet on Thursday night as I have had anywhere. Don't miss this great place.

We have stayed at the Hotel Pattee three times over the last decade, and we were recently delighted to find it still as beautiful and restorative as ever. The art and craftwork throughout the hotel is a treasure. It appears to be beautifully maintained. This time we were in the Italian Room, a little over the top in decor but...

Great hotel with excellent staff and unmatched service. Each room has its own unique theme. I was assigned the Barry Kemp room, full of television memorabilia from shows produced by this well known writer. The rooms were well kept, the bed was very comfortable, and everything was spotless. Throughout the hotel there was truly history around every corner. The library...

This lovely three-story hotel with themed rooms provides a fun place for a weekend get-away. The staff is very friendly and courteous. The rooms each have a different theme.
