Loved this place! We booked the Pfister but at the last minute changed to the Iron Horse. Upon entry you get a great feeling of the history of the building, which melds well with the hip nature of the hotel. Our corner room was large, and overlooked the city. The black slate tile in the room contrasted well with the...

The hotel is nice and refreshing. Ate at the bar early since I was on eastern time. By the time I finished the place was pretty crowded. My only complaint with the rooms would be that they are kind of dark. The lighting is not all that great, but fits with the theme of the hotel. The people at the...

I don't normally take the time to review, but I just had to do it for this one. The hotel was great. The rooms were spacious, very clean and upscale. I was there for work and we had conferences in the meeting rooms - the food was great and they were very attentive to our needs. We also held some...

First time at Iron Horse, came up for the weekend from Chicago and found the staff to be warm and inviting. The ambience was trendy and very unique. Have stayed at great boutique hotels all over the country and this tops the list - the use of vintage material, the attention to details - loved every little detail. Will absolutely...

Drove up from Chicago, valet parking only and it was professional and friendly. Check in was an easy process and the bell staff was efficient with my luggage. The room was spacious, clean and modern with a lovely bathroom (see pictures). I had the corner loft alcove room. Good onsite restaurants and friendly guests, so very harley, loved it! Location...

Simply put ... one of the top hotels I have ever stayed in. When you visit Milwaukee, spend the extra money and treat yourself with a night or two at the Iron Horse Hotel. Pros: customer service is 5 star, friendly and helpful, willing to go the extra mile bar is well stocked with fine "browns" for the sophisticated drinkers...

This hotel is absolutely AMAZING. From the moment you walk in the door you can’t help but forget about everything else! The staff is phenomenal and the service they provide is top notch!

So many of our guests live very close to the hotel and are looking to have a special night or 2 away without having to go far. We do our best to make sure that they feel like they are on a vacation far from home. Thank you for the review!

This is definitely our favorite hotel of all time. We discovered it a few years ago, and now we try to make it back every year because we love it so much. The decor is so cool--part modern, part rustic, but all luxurious. The calarmari app at the bar downstairs was delicious. As was our room service breakfast--everything was hot,...

A truly special experience. Beautiful hotel with special design details and vibe. Just south of downtown in a warehouse district (technically Walker's Point). Uber cool. But what sets it apart was the service, the quality of the food, the comfort of the room. A dreary, cold, grey, rainy weekend became a special weekend with my fiance as a result. Very...

I recently stayed at the Iron Horse Hotel and found it to be an incredibly satisfying place! The ambiance, the history, the service and the crowd that hangs there is outstanding. I wish all hotels put this amount of thought into making their patrons satisfied. This place mixes motorcycle attitude along with class. I can't wait to go back!
