Great overnight experience at a beautiful hotel

5 on September 21, 2016

The details in Hotel Pattee are first class. We especially enjoyed the art work by Gary Ernest Smith. What a delightful surprise for us. We had dinner in the hotel bar, and have to say the brussel sprout appetizer was the best I have ever had. Breakfast was excellent, the Stickley room we chose was decorated in such detail down to the pillows on the bed. It was spacious and the bed and pillows were comfortable.

Fun Weekend

We rode the Raccoon River Valley Trail on our bicycles, then spent a relaxing Sat overnight at the Hotel Pattee. We have stayed before but this was the first time under the ownership of Jay and Denise Hartz. Jay and Denise are gracious innkeepers and you see them everywhere on the property. They know what they are doing. Great attention detail. Impeccable service. We had a wonderful dinner at the hotel. Top service and food. Jay even brought us a sample of his fabulous sausage soup! Each room in this historic old hotel has a different theme, and we stayed in the Stickley room. A lot of history here, plus a bowling alley and spa. First class. If you are from Iowa, you may already know about the Hotel, but if you're traveling thru on I35 or I80, the Hotel Pattee in Perry is worth the short detour from the Interstates.

An unbelievable jewel in the heart ¿¿ of Iowa!

We have stayed at the Hotel Pattee a number of times, 3 times in 2015 and prior to that as well. We love the friendliness, excellent food, ambience throughout the hotel, lounge, lobby, and restaurant. The owners are first class and almost always on the premises. We feel fortunate such a unique place to stay (every room is different in this 100 year old restored Hotel) is right in our back yard so to speak! Where else can you have a bowling alley, be pampered in their spa, enjoy home cooked food and have free live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights? If it's not on your bucket list it should be! Love this place!!! Jay and Cheri Nugent Urbandale, IA (Des Moines, IA suburb)

Amazing Weekend.
