Well decorated lobby and rooms. Friendly staff. The bar can't be beat. A great renovation of a warehouse just out of downtown and easy to get to. Coffee pot and phone didn't work but they replaced the pot quickly. Never got the phone working and offered us an upgrade which we will use next time.

My boyfriend and I had first stayed at the Iron Horse 5 years ago. We had such an enjoyable stay that we vowed to return. We stay in Milwaukee at least once a year. However, we haven't been able to afford to return. We seem to always visit Milwaukee when room rates are higher. Luckily we found a good rate... More

Nothing more fun than springing a suprise on your wife and best friend. The Iron Horse and its staff were extraordinary and accommodating! After driving almost 6 hours from Minneapolis, the staff were so good so as to place champaign in our room prior to our arrival to make it even more special. The rooms here are unique and have...

With our 3rd stay at the Iron Horse Hotel we learned they are consistent. Starting at the door with the valet staff and onto the front desk people and into the bar, the staff at this industrial styled hotel are great! Very helpful and friendly. We took a nice room on the 6th floor this time and enjoyed our little... More

We just returned back to illinois from our visit to milwaukee. It was our daughters 23rd birthday and she lives in Wisconsin. I can't rave enough about this hotel. From the valet staff to the front desk to the restaurant staff every single person is pleasant and helpful and they make you feel welcome. Upon entering our room we saw... More

A modern and well done decorated theme from every aspect. Food was excellent, rooms are exceptional and modern. The lobby area reminds me of an American history museum specifically featuring motorcycles and nostalgic decor. Bar, uh, yes! Fast checkin and laid back appeal mixed with professional service. Superb breakfast! Highly recommended!

Our daughter had her wedding and reception (55 guests) in the library at the Iron Horse Hotel on Jan 9, 2016. Everything about the experience was wonderful. We planned the entire wedding in 3 months and enjoyed every step. We knew the wedding day itself would be a blur and we agreed at the start to have fun and enjoy... More

I travelled extensively for business and this may have been one of my favorite hotels! It's decor was interesting and fun! I loved the look of every room, the staff were fantastic, warm, helpful, and friendly. Would absolutely recommend it and hope business takes me this way again soon!

I've stayed at the Iron Horse hotel in Milwaukee probably more then 30 times. Every time is always perfect. Staff always goes over the top to make your stay exceptional. The lounge and bar downstairs is always fun and has great cocktails, and probably the best pool table in Milwaukee at a bar! Rooms always clean, very good size, well... More
