We were welcomed with a smile first by the knowledgeable valet and then by the very welcoming Ellie at the front desk. The staff at the Iron Horse was absolutely AWESOME, from the room delivery to Christine in the bar area who couldn't do enough for you. The room was very quiet and extremely comfortable. The pillows were the best... More

Several cool things about this hotel make this worth checking out at least once. Great valet service (you pay dearly for it, $30!), low key, warm check in desk that offers a refreshment or an apple upon arrival. We selected a corner room which was very comfy and quite large. The bathroom was very clean, large walk in shower with... More

This place is amazing! Check out my profile - I spend 75 nights out a year in at least a dozen cities. This is my favorite hotel anywhere! (thus far). Super cool vibe. Industrial meets luxury in a urban renewal-type of area. It's convenient to the airport and downtown and have an Uber hook up - so your covered! Love... More

Arrived at the Iron Horse to a complimentary cocktail, smiles, and great service and left feeling like a million dollars...This hotel is worth it...From the top (General Manager) to the bottom (Valet) everyone provided excellent customer service and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed...

We enjoyed our stay here while visiting the HD museum as it's very close by. The building, a former warehouse, has been beautifully converted and features spacious public areas and bedrooms too . Ensure you request a bedroom away from the railroad side ! Staff are friendly and attentive.

We have been going to the Iron Horse since it opened. The Third Ward has become such a great place. The hotel is funky,industrial chic , biker and dog friendly.It has so much personality as a boutique hotel. My only complaint is on many weekend occasions you have to book at least two nights......and as lovely as it is ...it's... More

Nice room. Meal in Smyth was very unpleasant. It was apparently the debut of a new menu, swordfish and salmon were inedible as were the accoutrements. To make it worse, when we asked for the check we were told that the machine had broken and we were forced to wait while they took their time trying to figure something else... More

A very hip hotel indeed! Lovely conversion from an industial warehouse. Stayed here when visiting the Harley Davidson Museum as it's right opposite. The rooms are spacious and well furnished and the bathroom well fitted with a walk in shower too.

Hello softailtone! So glad you decided to stay with us. We are just a stone's throw from downtown and anchor the Walker's Point neighborhood which is as hip as we are. Should you find yourself back this way, we are always glad to take you to our local attractions in our complimentary house car. Safe travels, More

I had high expectations of the Iron Horse prior to arrival, despite the fact that I knew it was going to exceed them, and I was correct. Boutique hotels are my ultimate favorite, and this one sits very high on the list. A side trip combining business and leisure, I could not have asked for a better experience. The staff... More

Dear olivia8485, I am but one of many who make up a fabulous TEAM. I'm proud that you were able to experience The Iron Horse and all that we have to offer. The hotel is unique in its offerings and has a compelling history that dates back to 1907 when the building housed a local factory. Smyth continues to be... More

Outstanding staff. Ordered a drink and it was well crafted but had sat at the bar for a while so the temperature wasn't as expected. They inquired and then fixed it. Again served fresh from the bartender. All the subsequent ones were attentively brought at the appropriate serving temp. Allowing me to say the crafted cocktails are excellent. Also, would... More

Dear Taylor L, So glad you stopped in for a drink and had a great time. Our wine list is extensive and we've recently rolled out our Spring Cocktail menu. Fresh squeezed juices, in house made syrups and a great selection of local spirits round out our menu. We hope to see you again soon now that The Yard is... More
