We stayed at the Iron Horse during a short vacation to Milwaukee for one night in January. The Iron Horse is a great hotel, unlike any others I've stayed at. It was a great experience overall. A breakdown of my 4.5 review (TripAdvisor doesn't allow fractions). The Pros: -location: it's an easy walk from the Amtrak station. We arrived by... More

I recently stayed at the Iron Horse and it is a beautiful hotel. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the room was spacious with fantastic high ceilings and all of it was very clean. The lobby had live music and a fun atmosphere and the staff was great. My only complaint was that I couldn't stay longer. Will definitely stay again!

It is decorated like no other hotel I have stayed at. It had a wonderful style. Every employee went out of their way to make sure I was satisfied. The bar and its staff were wonderful and the morning breakfast made for a pleasant start to the morning. The room was as nice as I have seen anywhere in my... More

The Iron Horse is our go-to hotel for events. Whether we stay the night, meet friends at Branded or dine at Smyth, the service is always superior to other Milwaukee hotels. I like the online check-in feature, the quiet, spacious rooms, the specialty cocktails and especially, the food. The Iron Horse Hotel is definitely doing it right.

This hotel is an old mattress factory that has been turned into a boutique hotel. The service is superb . The staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms have high ceilings with exposed ductwork, modern furniture, original art, marble countertops, and fine woodwork for drawers. The overall feeling is quite luxurious. The bathrooms are large. The location is very convenient... More

Actually went flew out to Milwaukee in 2013 and stayed at the Iron Horse. My wife and I purchased a rivet at the HD Museum for my best friend and we were there to see it (an easy walk across the bridge). The rooms were comfortable with high ceilings and nice showers. We enjoyed the restaurant and patio out back.... More

LOVE this place! Came here for a birthday weekend and just had a blast. The rooms are spacious and there's cool 'moto' features everywhere you look. The bar is excellent and the food served at the bar is top-notch. Did not dine in their restaurants, so no opinion there. This is not a cheap place to stay, but it IS... More
