My wife and I accidentally discovered the Hotel Pattee while driving through Perry, Iowa. Although we did not spend the night, we spent 2 hours wandering through the hotel, visiting lovely room after lovely room, each with its own unique theme that determined every aspect of its decor. Some rooms paid honor to the great ones of Perry, like the...

We heard about this hotel being located near a couple Rails to Trails locations, so we decided that we should check it out. We did some research first. The owners, Jay and Denise Hart are from the St. Louis Missouri area, where Jay has been involved in most every aspect of the hotel business from an early age, (18 years...

i was in Perry to bicycle the Racoon River Trail and the Trestle Bridge Trail and happened upon this great hotel--which added so much the the experience! An historic hotel with wonderful breakfast and friendly staff. A trip to Perry would not be complete without a stay at the Hotel Patee!!

I ended up here since the hotels in the town where I had business was booked. What luck! the lobby was charming, with antique-looking front desk; and antique style record keeping (reservation in a file folder in a box, not a computer). Each room has a different theme: mine was the author of many television shows (e.g. Newhart, Coach) Barry...

This hotel is most lovely. I took my mother here for a night while she was visiting the state and we had a very pleasant time. The cafe inside has the best food I've had since residing in Iowa! I'd like to suggest the shepherds pie!

This amazing gem was exactly what was needed after a day of driving from South Dakota on my way to Chicago. The rooms are decorated impeccably around different themes. Every element of the public space was on point and thoughtfully considered. The staff was super welcoming to both my dog and me after our 11 hour drive and late arrival....

We stayed for one night as we were passing through the area and had heard so much about the hotel. It has been beautifully restored. There is no denying that. Our check-in was ho-hum. The female clerk did not greet us with enthusiasm; any info we needed, we had to pull it out of her. On the contrary, the male...

We recently stayed at the Hotel Pattee as part of a bike adventure to ride the trails of the Raccoon River Valley bike trail.

Hotel Pattee is right across the street from the Raccoon River Valley trailhead. The staff are very friendly and make you feel right at home. Very accommodating to bicyclists. Look for the fresh baked cookies placed on each floor in the evening!! Definitely would return. Don't miss it!!
