In an industry that has become pretty boring and sterile (hotels), the Iron Horse stands out from the crowd! I recently traveled to Milwaukee for work and had the pleasure of staying here and it was great. From the lobby ambiance, to the personality of the room, all aspects just gave off a very hip vibe. I will definitely be... More

Our travel agent booked this hotel for a business trip so I didn't do any research prior to arriving. It is a rock and roll biker styled hotel and... It was awesome. The rooms are very large and unique. Not your typical hotel room at all with exposed brick, funky but tasteful decor and tequila if every nook and cranny.... More

Rode to Milwaukee to visit the Harley-Davidson museum and stayed at the Iron Horse. Beautiful hotel with tons of character. Our corner room was very spacious and worth the difference in price from the other rooms. Only disappointment was the restaurants that had limited menus and both the bar and Smyth areas were VERY loud.

Enjoyed our stay at the hotel, and didn't mind the train passing by in the a.m. Very nice room, and overly stocked with snacks and various drinks (including bottles of wine). So with all of the great aspects of the room, I was disappointed in a couple of things: 1) two people in the room, but only two bath towels/washcloths/hand... More

Our room was huge and very well decorated. We loved the blue velvet sofa and exposed brick wall in our room. The bed was very comfortable. The room service food was great and delivered quickly. When the power went out at the hotel, they had a free beer party in the lobby so everyone was happy! Loved the low key,... More

This was our first experience at the Iron Horse Hotel, and it certainly won't be our last. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, the level of service provided from everyone was fantastic. Since the Iron Horse Hotel is "Pet Friendly", we brought our German Shepherd "Gunther" along. He was very happy with the attention he received,... More

Iron Horse is a very nice hotel albeit on the pricy side. I stayed with a business group and thought the room was clean and high end with a great view. This would be more suitable for a romantic getaway with your honey. The service was great. The hotel bar and restaurants are very nice as well. Good wine selection... More

We come to Milwaukee annually, and for the past several years have stayed at the Iron Horse Hotel. This year we especially appreciated dining outdoors, where the food was excellent and the service superb. Also, we were pleased to learn how easy it was to get from the hotel to Miller Park. We always appreciate the help that we receive... More

This was my second stay at the Iron Horse and, like the first time, it was a delight. This time stayed in a custom deluxe room. On my first visit, I stayed in a corner alcove room which was extremely spacious and beautifully appointed. However, I was just a small bit disappointed that the room did not have one of... More
