This hotel has become one of my favorite getaway destinations. It's beautiful decor and biker chic vibe makes it romantic and hip at the same time. The staff is always pleasant and ready to help. Food and drinks are top notch. My husnband and I try to get there any chance we get. The last time we went, the guy...

We were only at the Iron Horse Hotel for one night but it left a lasting impression with us. The lobby area was filled with wonderful pieces of furniture like a rectangular coffee table made from square pieces of metal, welded together. I asked the front desk if they could tell me where it came from. They told me the...

Our Lobby was designed to be a space that our guests would want to spend time instead of just being the place to wait for a cab. A lot of the antiques and curious found the lobby were purchased within 2 miles of the hotel and some of them are older than the building itself. Thank you for the review...

Iron Horse rocked my stay. Milwaukee's Finest. Rooms were modern rustic. Bedding was fantastic, bathroom spacious and well appointed. The grounds were fun, an upscale biker night life atmosphere. Food was delicious (burgers, bison nachos, steak sandwich, lox, kringle). The list goes on. The bar was perfect for a couple or a good sized group and the lobby is the...

Our philosophy is to hire people for their personality. We can teach anyone how to check people in and out of rooms or how to make a Brandy Old Fashion Sweet (which are pretty amazing here) but we can not teach someone to care about other people. Thank you for the review and we hope to have you back in...

We loved the industrial yet luxurious styling of this hotel. If the restaurants in house are not the best fit, the neighborhood offers plenty of options within walking distance. We will return when we have another reason to celebrate!

The 5th Ward/ Walker's Point neighborhood that we are located in has come such a long way since we opened in 2008. Museums, distilleries, restaurants, nightlife, breweries and even a creamery are just a short walk away. Thank you and we hope to have you back soon!

Very cool loft style building and rooms. Great staff and food at the bar and the restaurant was delicious. Will stay there again if I'm back in Milwaukee. The room had all kinds of snacks and a full mini fridge.

Whether you are in the mood to hang out at the bar and have a steak sandwich while watching the game or want to have a more intimate dinner with someone special, we have you covered with Branded and Smyth. I am happy to hear that you were able to enjoy both!

I stayed at the Iron Horse about a year ago, the staff was, without exception, extremely accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure that my stay was memorable. To name a few that went above expectations, Eric, Laura, Travis, and Kathryn made sure that I received an item not normally available for sale to guests, I still wear...

From the moment we pulled up to valet until the moment we left, it was the most pleasant experience. Every staff person at the Iron Horse was friendly, courteous and attentive. The rooms were so clean, filled with many goodies to choose from, if we liked and the bathrooms were pristine. We stopped in the bar, packed, which indicates a...

I stayed here with my wife while we attended an event at the Pabst Theater. Even though it's not directly in downtown Milwaukee, it is an easy drive to all parts of the city. Valet parking is $25/night. Loved the smell of the hotel as you walk in the front door. Once you're checked in, you are offered a complimentary...
