City National Bank & Hotel (1909)

The Historic Park Inn Hotel in Mason City, Iowa is the only remaining hotel in the world that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It was originally built in 1910 as the City National Bank and Park Inn, and it served as a hotel until 1974. The hotel was then closed and fell into disrepair, but it was restored in 2011 and reopened as a boutique hotel.


The Historic Park Inn Hotel is open for overnight stays and is also close to the Stockman House which is open for tours.

About Me

FLW Enthusiast & Webmaster

Architecture and home design have always fascinated me. As a young girl I enjoyed drawing floor plans, rearranging my parent’s furniture and playing with Lincoln Logs and Legos.  My passion has always been the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Since I have been old enough to drive a car, I have visited Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Chicagoland area and attended the Wright Plus house walks. Now, as co-owners of Northern Sky Designs, my husband & I are able to combine our website design skills and FLW travels to bring you this website! Enjoy!
