Love this hotel. Always our first choice when traveling to Milwaukee. We love how unique the rooms are and the layout of them. The bar is great and the bartenders are very good. It is pricey but worth the experience.

This place was pretty much amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better stay anywhere! Everything had it's special touches from the location, decor, staff, bar, restaurant to the outside bar, food, and service. The room was perfect temperature the moment we walked in, through the night (which never happens). The brick wall, our view, bedding, there was nothing I... More

Our second stay at the Iron Horse was as wonderful as the original. We arrived late due to travel issues and were greeted by friendly guests and friendlier hotel staff. We were offered late check out without asking due to our late arrival. The outside bar served many thirsty patrons until well after 2am. We enjoyed every minute. Would recommend... More

I would definitely stay here again. Small but well appointed room. Comfy bed. Cool bathroom with rain shower and nice products. Small but functional fitness center with TRX. The staff at the front desk and bar were lovely. Tips: Don't bother with $30 valet. Parking in the area is free and plentiful. Skip breakfast service if you are in a... More

This was my 2nd stay at The Iron Horse. The hotel is situated in down town Milwaukee. The hotel has great style. Love the exposed structural elements throughout. Rooms are extremely comfortable. The walk in shower is the best. Staff is extremely friendly. If you don't want to go out for dinner the hotel has a couple of great options... More

This hotel is very well themed - retro tannery chic. Exposed brick walls and beams, exposed ducting in ceiling for the heat, large strange pieces of art, and a Harley in the lobby. The staff is exceptionally attentive and polite. The rooms are spacious, as is the bathroom. I had two issues - 1)location - this hotel is on the... More

This hotel is perfect for a quick getaway or a longer stay. It is walking distance to lots of great coffee shops, restaurants, summer fest and bars. The hotel also has a great outdoor area- "The Yard" to have drinks, food and just hang out. The landscaping in the yard makes you feel like you are someplace more exotic than... More
