Very nice trendy hip hotel that gets it right. Room is clean and spacious. Nice thick towels. Shower gets negative points for a very light rain shower feel, you have to use their hand held shower head to get the creme rinse out. The valets give excellent advice on restaurant recommendations. On their advice went to a great nearby Mexican... More

Incredible boutique hotel in downtown Milwaukee. We often travel here on business and rent 3 or 4 rooms. Rooms are incredible — spacious, stylish, loft style, every detail taken into account, with beautiful murals on the walls. You'll have a hard time deciding whether to stay in your room, or socialize in the incredible, cozy lobby. Restaurant is fantastic as... More

My wife and I were celebrating our 8th anniversary with a couples massage and chose the SPA at Iron Horse. When we arrived, we were greeted with a very warm smile from the valet and a hearty welcome. As we walked in to the hotel for the 1st time, we were very impressed with the design and loved the wood... More

I was blown away by the hotel's style and sophistication. Lots of leather, wood, and stone. Rustic chic. Masculine decor but in a good way. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Huge minibar and snack selection, although I didn't partake. Had a great stay, including delicious dinner in the restaurant and drinks at the bar.

We had a great experience at Iron Horse. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was also delicious! We enjoyed it and would definitely go back if we are in Milwaukee again.

We flew in for a long weekend and chose this hotel based on the reviews. We were not disappointed. We reserved the standard (cheapest) room but still had a great room with nicely appointed furnishings, a super comfortable bed and no noticeable noise from the nearby train line. Our view was the construction site next door but who cared? The... More

Planned a relaxing girl's weekend out and the Iron Horse did not disappoint. We had an excellent stay - from the amazing Route 66 Brunch to our super comfy room with a spectacular view - we wished we could have stayed longer. The staff was genuinely warm and helpful with suggestions on things to do during our weekend getaway. We... More

The great experience started with the call to reserve a room. The desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I purchased the additional pet package since I was bringing along my dog. He seemed really excited about that and told me all about what was included. Upon arrival, I was immediately impressed with the valet. He was very polite and... More

Great luxury boutique hotel, and true to it's Midwestern roots. Creative communal spaces, unique dining options and loft style guestrooms will keep you in, but I recommend venturing out into the eclectic surrounding neighborhood of Walkers Point. *Spotted Cow Beer in the mini-fridge!

Hello ChiHotelier, Spotted Cow is always refreshing and reflects our commitment to serving local products whether in the bar, restaurant or the minibar. Thanks for noticing and it's nice to see that you enjoyed the vibrant neighborhood of Walker's Point. Come back soon and explore Milwaukee.
