Prior to the Eagles announcing their Chicago dates, the closest venue was at Summerfest in Milwaukee. I had been planning a large party for a big birthday for my husband 6 days after the Milwaukee show and thought it would be fun to surprise him with these concert tix and sneak in a short get away just prior to the party. I was looking for a very nice hotel, close to Summerfest. When I saw the Iron Horse, I knew it was perfect!
We were not disappointed. Such a cool hotel! The loft rooms are exactly as shown in the online pictures. I loved the casual feel of this upscale hotel! We arrived just a little after 3 on a Sunday and our room was ready. I had booked a king loft, at checkin they said we were getting a upgraded room . I think this upgrade was to a slightly larger room on a higher floor. It was spacious and very clean. The bathroom was also very large. Loved the high ceilings and the bed was very comfortable.
We had a late lunch at the loft shortly after arriving. Great food with live music.
Took a cab to Summerfest, but afterwards hard to find one and it was an easy walk back.-just about a mile.
We only stayed one night at the Iron Horse- wish it was longer! If we ever have reason to stay in Milwaukee again- I wouldn't think twice about where to stay!.
