This hotel is amazing in so many ways: the room decors and size, the lobby, the bowling lanes. We went a bit [1/2 hour] out of our way home on Interstate 80 to try this place. It was so worth it. It is a gem. Each room has a theme. We choose Africa. Every thing in the room was from...

We stayed at Hotel Pattee for a wedding (at La Poste) and it definitely added to the experience! What a unique, refreshing surprise in the middle of Iowa. Each room was decorated to the nines with special attention paid to details and authenticity. We very much enjoyed our stay. There are two thing I would recommend for improvements. First, there...

This hotel was an awesome experience. I have never felt this pampered, at home, safe and relaxed as I did staying at this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful with whatever you may need or ask. This is an older historic hotel that has been totally redone in the Arts and Crafts style with each room a different...

A well appointed, charming hotel in the middle of nowhere! The building is old, but the rooms and bathrooms are clean and well kept. This was our third visit and we stayed in the Russian room on this trip. The decor was enchanting (love the desk!), the bed was very comfortable, and the shower was great! The only off putting...

The Hotel Pattee is a bit out of the way, but well worth the effort. Cool themed rooms, woodwork all around, nooks and crannies everywhere. This hotel feels old and luxurious at the same time. It's like stepping back in time.

I stayed one night at Hotel Pattee and was blown away at just about everything. This is truly one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at with a tremendous amount of history everywhere you look. Every room has a theme and you won't be disappointed. Plenty of activities to do on site- bowling alley, hot tub, great restaurant and bar!...
