Spend a night (or two) in an architectural marvel.
Iconic American architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th birthday is on June 8th and, while Wright died over 50 years ago, his design legacy still lives on in famous buildings and landmarks such as Fallingwater in Pennsylvania and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. To celebrate the occasion, we’ve rounded up a list of Frank Lloyd Wright homes and structures you can rent for the night.

The Inn at Price Tower
Located on the top floors of Wright’s only skyscraper, the 19-room hotel first opened in 2003.
