Happened upon this hotel by accident, but I sure was happy I did. A modern hotel with all amenities, but it's done up in a really cool style. The staff were very helpful and made all efforts to make my stay a good one. The hotel is only a quick walk away from the historic Third Ward and the Harley... More

Stayed here 2 nights for a weekend with my wife, and we loved this place. Highly recommended. The details...

Didn't expect to find such a great hotel in a city with, frankly, limited good hotel options but this hotel was fantastic by any standards! Funky without being too cool, super friendly staff, great sized rooms... and even the provision of ear plugs for the nearby locomotive track (which I didn't need or use but appreciated the thought!)

I loved staying at the Iron Horse Hotel. It has very cool "loft" rooms, great design and interesting artwork. The food at Smyth was wonderful, and time spent at the bar, Branded, was fun. Interesting note: I do not ride on two wheels and my best friend is not 4 legged, but I felt at home at the Iron Horse.... More

This hotel is close to the Harley Davidson museum and not much else. It isn't in the greatest location and there is no taxi stand nearby although they respond pretty quickly to a call from the front desk. The Hotel is cozy and what little food I ate here was very good. Rates were inflated at over $350 per night... More

The Iron Horse is a very Hip Urban Boutique Hotel. I was very impressed. I was expecting "standard" boutique hotel, but we got so much more. Valet parking was a breeze. Check in was simple. The staff had a "hip vibe" to them and they even offered us a cocktail. We stayed in a corner view city suite. I wish... More

Liked the first night so much, we stayed a second night. It's a five minute walk to the Harley Davidson Museum (the purpose of our visit to Milwaukee) and a 2 minute cab ride to either the casino or the Third Ward for shopping/restaurants. For those of you on a motorcycle, they have "sheltered" parking in front of the hotel... More

I stayed at the Iron Horse while in town for a family wedding and it is a huge cut above as far as hotels go.

I mean, what can you not say about this place? It is really the only place to stay in Milwaukee if you want a hip, vibrant, and upscale stay. The rooms are spacious, well kept, and they have kept the architecture from the old warehouse that the building was renovated from originally. Exposed beams, brick walls....cool stuff. The only drawback... More
