My wife and I recently stayed at the Iron Horse hotel in Milwaukee. We had a nice room with a king size bed and a large walk in shower. The staff from our check in was very friendly and quick. We had a very good breakfast in the morning and checkout was a breeze also.

Came here after a 14 hour flight. The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Great atmosphere and incredibly cool place. Would definitely stay here again! If you are looking for a unique place to bed, check this place out!

Just came back from spending the weekend at the Iron Horse for hubby's big Birthday. We could not have picked a better place for the ambiance, esthetics &comfort. Loved their industrial touches and the comfortable room with a great bed. Blackout curtains blocked an early morning light as well as any noise. A very modern bathroom, with a rain forest... More

In a world of boring featureless sanitized chain hotel the Iron horse offers a unique stay Next door to the Harley Davidson Museum this converted warehouse is different from the moment you walk in. From the massive stars and strips flag hanging against the wall that is a piece of installational art not a sign of obsessive nationalism to the... More

I loved this hotel. The rooms were so unique and decorated really nicely and I think each is a little different. They are dog-friendly, which was nice to see pets around as animals really cheer me up. The bar is fun! Not a great location when it comes to walking to where you want to go, but within short driving... More

Have stayed here numerous times for special occasions (i.e. weddings, anniversaries). Love the atmosphere and style this hotel offers. Great location especially for all the Harley enthusiasts! Absolute favorites are the HUGE windows, industrial decor, beautiful murals in every room, which are all different, and the bathroom/shower! The beds are also amazing! Have never been disappointed! Even got upgraded for... More

Second time at this hotel while visiting family in the area. Just came up from Sofitel in Chicago and if I could put this hotel in same place in Chicago, I would never leave. Nothing wrong with Sofitel, but Iron Horse is a very welcoming boutique hotel for the masses. If you come to Milwaukee and don't need to be... More

This is really the coolest hotel in Milwaukee. The rooms are huge, the gym is great, and the outside patio bar is fabulous. Eat breakfast in the library. Unlike many hotels, all the restaurants here are great here. And dogs are very welcomed here. This is a motorcycle themed hotel which sits next to the Harley Davidson museum.
