I was spending a long weekend in Milwaukee seeing old college friends and wanted to stay somewhere swanky. This hotel definitely fit the bill. I had one minor issue that the upgraded room I paid for was not what I expected (I specifically selected a room that would have a seating area so that my friends could hang out with...

We live in Chicago and went up to Milwaukee for one night to see the Lakers v. Bucks. We stayed at the Iron Horse and absolutely loved it! The service was really good. Staff was very attentive but not overbearing. We stay at a lot of luxury hotels and the Iron Horse is right up there with the best. The...

This place is wonderful - we had a great experience. I only have two things to add to the most recent reviews of the hotel: it is not located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, but is a short drive away. Also, although the $25/night valet is pricey, I'd recommend using it instead of parking on the street (you can...

My husband and I stayed at the Iron Horse for a brief Anniversary Celebration. We have stayed with them many times and each time becomes an experience to remember. The front desk helped me place framed photos of our wedding in the room prior to arrival. When my husband saw them tears were in his eyes. The staff at this...

We love to have dogs of all sizes with us. In fact it can be very difficult to get through the lobby without having every staff member stop you to pet your puppy. Thank you for writing a review and please come see us again soon!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Iron Horse. Everything about the place was classy. From the valet attendant to the desk receptionist. It is a very clean and beautiful hotel. The decor is truly amazing. Will stay there again and have told friends about it. You will not be disappointed.
