I had booked my room online through their website. I made a mistake about the date and the Gal that I spoke with on the phone was more than happy to help me correct the date. As we arrived the parking was quite congested. We were greeted immediately by the Valet. Valet service was FREE but they parked our vehicle... More

My husband and I stayed at The Iron Horse for a two night stay as a Christmas present to each other. We had made reservations but had no plans once we got there. When we arrived we were greeted by Juve at the Front Desk. He gave us the best recommendations for dinner and drinks and even fun other things... More

This hotel has the vibe I was looking for. I asked my girlfriend to marry me the night we stayed here. Everything went perfect other than I couldn't have candles in our room but trust me when I say the hotel spoke for itself

We visited the harley davidson museum and was recommended this hotel by one of the employees there. They had a really nice outside bar/seating area with live entertainment. Our room was amazing and everyone there was very nice. We definately plan on staying there again!

Three girlfriends and I stayed at the Iron Horse Hotel for a girls' weekend. When we checked in, we were greeted by a delicious cocktail and headed up to our room. The room was refreshing, not the typical hotel room. The furniture, decor and bathroom were all very updated and hip. The hotel bar was great as well and we... More

We went up for a concert and decided to try the iron horse for one night. Its usually very expensive during summer. We were VERY pleased with the eloquence and decor. Doorman, Valet park, front desk (maybe a little hard to see but I get it). The lounge area in lobby with fruit, water, coffee. We had dinner in Smyth... More

I had the good fortune to stay in this beautiful hotel in December, 2014. It is meticulously refurbished, in a great location. The staff and the check-in were very accommodating and friendly. My room was large and no sounds penetrated from my neighbors. There's an outdoor area that looks to be very inviting. I'm going to come back next July.... More
