The desk clerk gave me a brochure that explained the history of the hotel and invited me to look around. I walked around to look... More

Who would have known that a brilliantly appointed and designed Frank Lloyd Wright hotel would be in Mason City. Not only is the design wonderful, the staff and accommodations are first class. This is a gem.

The food and service were excellent! We also enjoyed the downstairs lounge and bar. The hotel offers a tour of the hotel and bank. It was fascinating! We... More

My husband is the FLW fan. Me, not so much. However, this hotel is beautiful. We stayed in a nice room. The bathroom was SPOTLESS. That is a big deal to me. The rest of the room was very clean except for two things. There was a lot of dust on the window sills and the windows were dirty inside... More

The story and renovation on this hotel are just wonderful. We stayed Friday and Saturday night and took the tour on Sunday before we left.... More

We stayed in the historic room. The room was quite small, but not uncomfortable. I enjoyed the having the 1910 hotel room experience. The hotel has been beautifully renovated. The tour is a must.

We visited The Historic Park Inn Hotel. The Hotel featured the Frank Lloyd Wright design. The architecture was amazing and the Compression Effect concept was very interesting. There was a wonderful skylight lit lobby.
