I booked a night at the Iron Horse Hotel particularly for my husband who has been a Harley rider for nearly 50 years. We were heading to Northern Wisconsin for the holidays and I wanted to show him my hometown along with a tour of the Harley museum. I figured a night in the Iron Horse was worth it just for the location (across the street from the museum).
Of course, for a man who is not only a Harley enthusiast but also in construction, the building was more than just a good location, it was a gorgeous re-model and fun to stay in. I made certain to make the one night stay memorable and booked a small corner suite with the shower that featured glass on the bedroom side. For the little bit extra, it was totally worth it. The room was spacious, in fact almost too big. The bathroom, as I said, was wonderful, the glass on both sides added to the sexiness of a romantic evening. Finally, the view we had was, amazingly, the museum itself and I thank whomever gave us that room because it really set us up for a wonderful vacation.
We started our evening by picking each other up in the bar, Branded downstairs. Such a romantic atmosphere and wonderful bartenders. The long bar is the perfect place to flirt with a "stranger." Our dinner at Smythe was delicious and we enjoyed our waitress immensely. We finally let her in on our secret at the end of the meal and she loved what we were up to. Finally, breakfast in the Library was delicious and such an amazing atmosphere...in fact, all the public rooms are so well though out that just eating there would be an adventure.
In all, I wish we had more time to really have enjoyed the hotel and its biker amenities. Perhaps one summer we'll take a cross-country ride. If we do, the Iron Horse is definitely on our itinerary.
The basics: super clean, very spacious and quiet, quiet, quiet. The bed was phenomenally comfortable with a great selection of pillows (I am a pillows-to-the-hilt kind of a gal). The bathroom was spacious and clean and then huge shower was a bonus. We tried all the eating establishments and highly recommend them. The staff was wonderful, fun and generous - I called about a week before to specifically make sure the corner suite I booked had the shower with the glass on the bedroom side, and I learned that not all do. The staff had no problem accommodating my request, and we had a late check-in.
Thank you again for a wonderful night at your hotel!!!
