A iconic Frank Lloyd Wright building that was originally a hotel and a bank. The bank is now the ballroom for the hotel and all is beautifully restored. That includes the 1910 Grille. Just an amazing place.

If you're a FLW fan, you have to stop here. A beautiful lobby and such a well-preserved hotel. Plenty of street parking nearby and also close to a quaint open-air mall with a few restaurants and a great men's store.

Loved our stay at the Historic Park Inn. You are surrounded by Frank Lloyd Wright from the beautiful restaurant to Prairie style seen in the bedrooms.
