Nice trendy hotel room. Overpriced for a Sunday night, July 3rd, at over $400. Could have got past that if we were able to get a restful night's sleep. However, that was impossible on the super plush mattress. Worst hotel I've ever stayed in for that reason. To top it off, woke up to a fire alarm and had to... More

Great little boutique hotel very near the Harley museum. Very biker friendly, and has almost more motorcycle parking spots than car sized ones! Also very pet friendly! Great food, both room service and the main restaurant. Nice outdoor patio with a crowded happy hour. Uniquely designed with plenty of charm. This is definitely not a plain hotel in any way!

Finally got down to Milwaukee to stay at the Horse; the summers just fly by! We snagged a corner room, and the views are magnificent from the 5th floor. Everything was great. I do have a couple of small things that I'd change; others might say no. The chair at the desk is super slippery on the hard floor. It... More

I stayed just one night but the service and hotel were so nice. Brought my dog-very pet friendly. Didn't have a chance to try the restaurant but had a nice time in the outdoors bar with snacks. Will recommend to others. Walking distance to third ward.

From the moment we stepped inside I knew this place was going to be great, and I was not disappointed. With an eclectic industrial feel in the public areas, and room decor to match. Spacious rooms are among the coolest I have seen. After spending the day at the HD Museum, which is a short stroll away, we spent the... More

The Iron Horse is a great combination of quality hotel, good restaurant and fun atmosphere. The room was large, clean and modern. Mini bar was stocked, towels were fluffy and the wi fi was lightning quick. The bar was active on a tuesday night. The restaurant served modest portions of really good breakfast items. The staff was friendly and super... More

Fabulous hotel, staff, food&beverage and hospitality. We hosted a company leadership retreat in May which included multiple hotel rooms and a meeting in The Loft. Staff could not have been more accommodating and genuine in pleasing our team. Rooms were very comfortable, well styled and clean. The vibe of the hotel and staff makes you feel coo

After a long day of car travel, we stayed here on a Saturday night. The staff was beyond amazing, the atmosphere is super cool and welcoming and our room was perfect. We enjoyed drinks and dinner at the outside patio restaurant with our dog and we all loved it! It is a gorgeous hotel with top notch service - I... More

Stayed at the Iron Horse for one night on Sunday. It was clean, modern and staff was friendly. Unfortunately, the outdoor bar was closed (one of the reasons why we chose it) which was disappointing, but not a big deal...overall hip boutique hotel..but their attention to detail in some areas is off the charts, but major misses in other areas..that...

This is a beautiful hotel. The large, open lobby encourages relaxing while sipping a beverage, or reading the paper. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We were so surprised and pleased with the champagne on ice that was waiting for us in our room upon arrival. (I had mentioned that it was our anniversary when I made the reservation). Also,... More
