My husband and I get a kick out of trying out different highly rated boutique hotels in different cities as a fun weekend get away, so when a friend suggested Milwaukee and the Iron Horse and we checked the reviews, Conde Nast, etc, we quickly made reservations. We weren't disappointed---AMAZING hotel. Cool, friendly, comfortable, hip---the list kept growing as we settled in and continued to grow as we stayed. In fact, the city has a lot to offer but we hated leaving the property since we were so happy right there. We found ourselves happily sitting in the lobby/cozy-hip-living-room to people watch. Our room (603) was great as it overlooked the city skyline, and we could hear the rain pitterpat on the roof during a rain storm. The IH even supplied ear plugs lest you were bothered by the very real railroad screaming by at night---we weren't because strangely it added to the ambiance. LOVED the bar too. Restaurant (Smyth) was okay---a little unnecessarily stuffy but the food was good. I will add that my husband is a guys-guy so the masculine feel of this place made him feel right at home---there have been places we have stayed where he seemed afraid to touch anything lest it break but this place with its leather covered headboards, solid wood benches and glistening gears on light fixtures made him feel right at home. LOVED IT.
