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...

The Hotel Pattee in Perry, IA is such a fun experience. It is a very beautiful old hotel with the old time feel. Each room has a different theme. There are opportunities for a spa and massage by appointment. There is dining which was absolutely delicious. The service was excellent and the accommodations were amazing. I'd call it a boutique...

World class hotel in Perry Iowa. Big city amenities and small town charm. You can escape in the Hotel Pattee and feel like you are in a big city or another country. Unique rooms, great service and a beuatiful restaurant and bar.

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. We stayed in the "Marching band" and found it fun and different. A word of caution to any guests staying in this room is to be careful with the headboard of...

The rooms are quite exciting to look at but service was totally lacking this visit. Have stayed many times at this hotel and was very disappointed! Food was average at best in restaurant, bar area closed very early while people were still enjoying a drink. Front staff at desk were quite rude when asked questions regarding payments, why bar area...

This year I finally was able to stay at Hotel Pattee for the Brrr Ride. What a treat! We ate all but one meal at the hotel during our stay. The restaurant was extremely good. We each indulged in Jacqueline's Shepard's Pie, which was a meal owner Jay Hartz grew up with. This was a very rich treat. During a...

First discovered this hotel near the corn fields of Iowa in the early 2000s when it was recently opened. The attention to detail, the innovative decor (each room different), the beautiful regional artwork - all brought us back for several visits. The new owners don't have the same eye. A recent stay was disappointing even though the rooms are still...

Thank you for staying with us and thank you for your feedback. 20 years ago, the Hotel Pattee was renovated with a $14 Million+ dollar investment. Since that time, the hotel has been unsuccessful under two previous owners and has closed twice. My wife Denise and I bought the hotel 3 years ago and re-opened it. To say the least,...

We greatly enjoyed New Year's Eve at Hotel Pattee! Thanks so much for the memorable experience! We stay at the hotel a few times a year for a quick getaway. We also stop in to escape the heat for a bit during the summer when we ride the 70 mile loop on the bicycle trail. We always enjoy the hotel,...
