This hotel is different and a bit off the beaten path, but a good experience and I recommend it. The rooms are either small or big, depending on the price class, but all seem to have the brick walls and fun murals as well as good bathrooms w/ big showers. There is a well-equipped fitness room that is not crowded... More

Part of the Milwaukee Third and Fifth Ward renovation, the hotel is in an old factory building and very close to the Harley Davidson Museum. Without question a great place to stay. Rooms very well done. Comfortable beds and bedding, luxury showers and a great restaurant. Much of the decor focuses on the re-purposing of industrial and factory parts and... More

Milwaukee has a number of great hotels, and thanks to my job I have spent many nights in many of them. That said, none comes close to the Iron Horse. I absolutely love this hotel. I have stayed there half a dozen times and it's never anything less than fantastic. It may well be my favourite hotel in the U.S.... More

I recently stayed here for one night while traveling through to Green Bay. This is a very ecletic hotel. It is an old factory building from the early 1900's and the decor is meant to fit that. There are lots of woods, leather antiques, exposed wooden beams, even an old motorcycle in the lobby. The rooms are beautiful. They have... More

I was in town for a quick wedding weekend. The iron horse never disappoints!!! The room was amazing and branded was fantastic!! I had a house infused citrus vodka that mixed a perfect cocktail. The fish tacos and cheese curds were FANTASTIC. I would come back just for them!!! Thanks to Michael and Ellie for a memorable trip!

The Iron Horse makes a great getaway for my wife and me, and our dog loves it too. In a word, the hotel is friendly. It is easy to relax here.
