It was very special to stay in a building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. He was commissioned to design a building that contained a hotel, a bank, and law offices. It was fascinating to see how he pulled that off. The rooms were cozy (10 feet by 10 feet) but that is a hallmark of FLW. We went out of...

We can say unequivocally that in every respect from the food and service in the 1910 Grille and breakfast each morning, the lounge, the facility, and the helpful staff, our stay was first class. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Just staying in the last existing Frank Lloyd Wright hotel was a real treat. It is a beautiful hotel!

This was our second visit to the Historic Park Inn (or HPI), and the property has even improved from our first visit two years ago. Both times, we asked for rooms on the park, but of course they were both different due to the hotel's unique nature. The re-do was masterful in keeping the look and feel of the a...

Having family from Mason City, I've heard all the stories of th Park Inn. So I enjoy the irony of the pool tables in the pub area as at one time, the Park Inn was a billiards hall. Wonderful attention to detail, down to the heated bathroom floor and incredibly comfortable beds. I wish the resturant would've been open while...

To celebrate my spouse’s retirement, we traveled to Mason City for a FLW weekend including the Historic Park Hotel, Stockman house and walking tour of the prairie style homes in the city. This is a must for any Wright enthusiast. After a picnic lunch in the park square across the street from the HPI, we met our docent Kathy for...

Our stay at the hotel was wonderful. Our room had a "park view" and this was well worth the upgrade. The refurbishing of the rooms has not taken away from the spirit of the hotel. The staff was very helpful. In fact, one of the staff members took us on a brief tour of the first floor and pointed out...

Knowing that this is the last Frank Lloyd Wright hotel in the world is cool, but the hotel is really fun and interesting to explore. Walk around and see all the public spaces on each floor, the meeting rooms, and the outdoor decks.

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
