The historic Park Inn Hotel in Mason City opened to visitors on Monday for the first time in decades. The building, once included on Preservation Iowa’s Most Endangered Properties list, has been lovingly restored in recent years and is now open for business.

The 27-room hotel is the only remaining hotel in the world designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright and is expected to draw architecture fans from around the world. Besides restoring the exterior of the building and renovating public areas to their original appearance, guest rooms are now equipped with modern conveniences to accommodate business and other pleasure travelers. The hotel’s grand opening will be September 10–101 years to the day that the original Park Inn opened. A series of events leading up to the big day is planned.

For reservations, contact the Historic Park Inn at 800-659-2220.
