Historic Park Inn Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
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.

Completely unique experience. Really good food in the 1910 Grille, too, for both dinner and breakfast. I especially loved the breakfast omelet -- so refined and delicate. What a great stay.

It's a fun place to go with friends/family. Have a drink in the 1910 Lounge (downstairs)

The hotel was absolutely beautiful - renovated back to the original Frank Lloyd Wright architecture and furnishings. There were multiple levels and lounges to enjoy the ambiance. The 1910 restaurant was superb all entrees were spot on. Any sauce or embellishment enhanced the ent

Any review has to start with the fact that the hotel is Frank Lloyd Wright designed. It is a thrill to stay at a hotel designed by him and we liked that our room looked out at a park with a statute of him facing the hotel. Even were the hotel not designed by him, it would be well

Which tower suite has the better view?
Did not have a room with a view. Loved it that we could use any of the public rooms. Played "Bananas" in the Ladies Drawing Room. A lovely stay.

What is the policy on pets
Unfortuantely, due to the very nature of the restoration of this one of a kind hotel, as much as we love them, they are not permitted in our facility.

"expanded king was adequate remember this is a historic hotel so rooms have character"
"I have never had a bad room. Unfortunately, there is not much to do or to eat within walking distance in downtown Mason City."
"All rooms have outside views....try to get one looking at the park if you can."
"They're all great!"
"Has elevators. Corner rooms have more FLW designed windows, don’t worry, room darkening shades."
