Frank Lloyd Wright Design

Originally the City National Bank, Law Offices and Hotel, the Historic Park Inn Hotel is the only hotel in city center, the only boutique hotel in Mason City and the very last standing hotel still standing in the world that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Unreal

“Where to begin? The history of the hotel alone warrants a high review, but it is much more than that. The hotel has a really cool vibe and you can see Wright's touches everywhere you look. Would like to visit again.”

Another Wonderful Stay at This Historic Property

“My husband and I stayed here last night for the second time in the past few years. We are Frank Lloyd Wright admirers and the property is historic and beautiful and the staff members ensure you feel warmly welcomed. We can't wait to return the next time we visit Mason City.”
-Mary Alice H | TripAdvisor

Every FLW Fan Must Stay Here

“This hotel has been beautifully restored, and every square inch has FLW's touch. The room we had was spacious, comfortable and quiet. We took a self guided tour of the hotel and each room was amazing. It is easy to see why Mason City is in the Top 20 list of architecture towns/cities.”
