Really nice hotel in a so-so area of Milwaukee, but close to the Third Ward and the Harley Davidson Museum so not that bad. Very nice rooms with a large bar area which was nice to use for a "catch all" area. Bathroom and shower really roomy, but privacy could be a little compromised if you have someone who really... More

Stayed for the first time 2 days ago in the Iron Horse - short, but great stay. Had a superb dinner in Smyth after a few yuks about the description of Wisconsin specialties. I've been in the Pfister and the Intercontinental and now finally, a cool hotel for future stays. Great bar area and wonderful outside ambience. So much history... More

I'll try to cover some of the things that haven't been covered in previous reviews. I was having a hard time envisioning the area where this hotel is located. It is basically a warehouse district. A river and a train track run directly in back of the hotel. We requested two rooms in front of the hotel and barely heard... More

The Iron Horse hotel continues to be a delightful departure from the standard fare of hotel offerings. Although it is definitely a thematic boutique hotel, the comfort and amenities make this a world class stay. From the valet at check in, to the bartenders, to the waitstaff, they get it. They understand that customer service is number one. They continually... More

When traveling to Milwaukee, WI we never stay anywhere else. If you have a dog that you like to travel with, any size or breed, they are very accommodating! Our dog is treated like a King when he is there! All the staff are always excited when he is coming. The rooms are amazing and the beds are super comfortable.... More

I have never been to a hotel like this. I believe it was created from a renovated building. It is a block away from the Harley Museum and a few blocks from downtown Milwaukee (you would want to cab it to the downtown area). PROS: - Easy check in - Very nice big lobby - Nice bar area with knowledgeable... More

So glad we chose this hotel for the first night of our trip! This hotel exceeded our expectations. It is a very trendy and provides a fun atmosphere.

Beautifully renovated building and modern furnishings make this hotel a very pleasant place to stay. The atmosphere is warm and friendly with local touches that give you a sense of "place." Pluses include free coffee in the lobby in the morning, free wifi, a delicious restaurant (Smyth's), and friendly staff. Downsides include an inconvenient location. Despite being close to the...
