Well preserved/restored hotel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. A guided tour is available and covered virtually the entire property. Worth the visit if you enjoy Wright's buildings. Of course this is considerably larger than the FLW houses so there's more to see.

We didn't stay here but enjoyed walking through this restored Frank Lloyd Wright designed hotel. Frank Lloyd Wright's genius is immediately obvious. I understand the rates are reasonable and there is a high demand for rooms.

One huge skylight window of his design had been dismantled, stored and found in an attic years later. Ballroom still holds events....More

The building is a classic and the folks are friendly in the Mid Western tradition. And the restaurant in the hotel is the BEST meal I have had. Maybe ever. Go even if you have to go out of your way.
