The ONLY remaining Frank Wright designed hotel in the world. Reopened in 2011 after a $18.5 million renovation. Originally had 40 rooms and now has 27 rooms without ruining the historic charm. Fantastic restaurant in the hotel makes the weekend getaway worth it! The queen size rooms are the way to go.

We stayed at the Historic Park Inn early in October this year for a weekend (Friday and Saturday night). We are both huge Frank Lloyd Wright fans and also love furnishings of the Arts and Crafts movement, so obviously, we loved the place as soon as we walked in. This place has been lovingly restored to glory and it shows, and I do mean LOVINGLY. Attention to detail is jaw-dropping. Everything from the lobby to the common areas and the rooms. Every nook and cranny exuded charm (the sitting area right off of the second floor elevator is a great example of this). Our room, room 205, was good sized. Not the best view through the windows, but we didn't mind cause the room itself was fantastic. It was an amazing blend of Arts and Craft with state-of-the-art technology. The LARGE (I would guess 42-46 inch plasma HDTV) was wall mounted and swiveled to be viewed from the nice couch on one side of the room or the wonderful (and ultra-comfortable queen bed). The lighting controls for the room was 22nd century stuff: wall-mounted panel with touch-screen controls labeled with settings such as "reading," "relaxing," etc. and the room lights would dim or brighten accordingly. The tiled bathroom had heated floors and was sparkling clean and large. The hotel has a breakfast/lunch/dinner restaurant where we had one dinner and two breakfasts. The breakfasts were a hit and, for the most part, the dinner was too. In the basement is a wonderful bar featuring two rooms, one with a flat screen TV and easy chairs. The staff we interacted with were pleasant and professional. Location is in downtown "old" Mason City, near attractions like the Meredith Wilson boyhood home, and a Frank Lloyd Wright house, the Stockman house, which you can tour. There are a few other restaurants in walking distance too. There is free hotel parking alongside the hotel (you get a permit that you hang on your rear view mirror) and hopefully there will be no one who takes up one of the limited spots. We never had a problem. I HIGHLY recommend staying here a few nights. Mason City is a small town but there's plenty to do and see over a long weekend. It is only a 2 hour or so drive from the Twin Cities as well - a shot down I-35 and you're basically there. We plan to visit again - and hopefully soon.

Room Tip: If you can get a room with a street view, it might be worth it. But I have to think every room is delightful.

Our room at the Inn was spotlessly clean, comfortable and oh so special. The bed was amazing and felt great after traveling all day. Shower was quite enjoyable too. To stay in this gem was a bucket list item for me. I enjoyed walking around the hotel and snapping photos of the public areas. Great sitting areas to relax. I would recommend for all FLW fans.

We were able to get a last minute room due to a late cancellation....keep checking if you can't find a room online. This is why you come to Mason City. All was up to the standards you expect when you average close to 54 stars on trip advisor. The lounge and grill are a nice compliment.

This is a great place to stay or just visit. The rooms are nice. We enjoyed the sitting area outside on the 2nd floor overlooking the town square. Take a walking tour through the hotel. Well preserved.
