I'm willing to bet that the majority of Iowans – even those just 30 minutes away in Des Moines- don't know about the Hotel Pattee. The hotel itself is the sole destination in the small town of Perry – and what a destination it is!
Closed for two years, the Hotel Pattee recently re-opened, and is – for the first time – owned by individuals and not a corporate hotel group, adding personality to the already charming hotel.
The new owners – Jay and Denise Hartz – have been active in expanding the offerings at the hotel, recently offering catering from the very tasty David's Milwaukee Diner and a small cupcakery, cleverly named Pattee Cakes.
