The Historic Park Inn Hotel, together with City National Bank in Mason City, Iowa, were designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright 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 a complete renovation, including 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.
Docent-led tours of the hotel are Thursday and Friday at 11:30 am and 1:00 pm, Saturday at 11:30 am and Sunday at 1:30 pm. Cost is $10.00 per person. For groups of ten or more, please make a reservation two weeks or more in advance.
