– Frank Lloyd Wright

Now known as The Historic Park Inn Hotel, the property was originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright as the City National Bank, Law Offices and Hotel in 1909. After a myriad of changes and a twenty-million-dollar preservation and restoration project by non-profit organization, Wright on the Park, the property was restored to a working hotel and events center in 2011, over a century after its original completion. As the last remaining hotel designed by Wright, The Historic Park Inn Hotel is a tribute to his role in architectural history and offers visitors the opportunity to experience Wright’s distinct style and design.

Timeless Experience

The 27-room boutique hotel maintains the historical nature of Frank Lloyd Wrights’ timeless design, while offering modern amenities for the comforts of travel. No two of the 27 guest rooms are alike, all varying shapes and sizes as a result of the shift from 43 small 10’x10’ rooms in the original 1910 structure.
