Which were unfortunately not met. Having skimmed the reviews and basing my decision off Trip Advisor ranking this as the #1 hotel in the city, I expected to have the #1 experience. However, my experience was just average. My biggest complaint was the low pressure waterfall shower and unpleasant smell in the shower. Luckily, we didn't spend that much time... More

This was our second visit and we love the charm and character of this boutique hotel. We enjoyed our visit to the lobby bar for drinks and yummy homemade potato chips and dip. Each room has a mural of a beautiful woman painted by Chuck Dwyer. He is a very talented artist who also created an amazing American flag in... More

This is our 2nd stay at this hip, fun hotel in a good location. Love the lobby, rooms, bar and restaurant. And it's fun to see the canine guests so welcomed. Friendly staff. Looking forward to retuning when the Yard is open- what a great place to hang out!

Mom and I have an annual tradition. We spend the weekend in Milwaukee, and play the Bingo Bash at The casino. From my first conversation with Michael, I knew service was the name of the game at Iron Horse. Mom needs some special accommodations when we travel, and Iron Horse met or exceeded our requests. From arrival, the valets were... More

I always stay at the Iron Horse when I visit Milwaukee. It has a big cool factor in the lobby and rooms. The restaurant and bar has good food. This past visit left me frustrated with their WiFi connection. It's been poor my last few visits and I couldn't get any work done during my stay. The gym is very... More

The Iron Horse is the epitome of a boutique hotel. It has unique and beautiful decor, great bar and food, great ambiance all around. I felt very welcome as soon as I drove up and handed the car keys to the valet. Everyone was very friendly, great customer service. I booked my room directly with the online hotel site. I... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel this past weekend and had a great experience. They really put a lot of thought into the details. The mini fridge, snacks, etc. were the best (and most creative) selection I've seen. The decor was very different but cool. Everything was very clean and the beds are VERY comfortable. I was extremely... More

I got into Iron Horse as the downtown hotels were booked already. What a great surprise and difference compared to the typical business hotels! Creativity all around inspires your own. Although for one night only I felt home immediately.

Very chic, interesting hotel. Glad we chose to stay here. Our room was spacious and comfortable, but the bathroom light is terrible and the somewhat revealing shower configuration might not be good for non-couple travelers. We are fairly light sleepers, but were not bothered by train noise at all as some posters have been. Good restaurants are nearby and walking... More

Huge rooms, a fabulous lobby and sheltered parking for at least 2 chapters of Hell's Angels make this a must-ride spot. It's a short ride to the Harley museum, and in the meantime you can kick back and enjoy all the things that motorcycle outlaws crave. As Peter Fonda said in Wild Angels, 'We wanna be free to ride our... More
