The exterior is well worth seeing. Unless you are staying at the hotel, you only have access to the small lobby and lower lounge area, but well worth a walk-through. If you are in Mason City, you wouldn't want to miss it.

Although Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built six hotels, the Historic Park Inn Hotel is the only one left. Restored by the people of Mason City saved this gem, and now it’s open for tours.
