My sister and I found this hotel on TripAdvisor as we were planning a girl's weekend in Milwaukee. I don't know if it was the welcome drinks or rustic decor, but we immediately felt relaxed upon arrival. My sister has never stayed at a hotel with terry-cloth robes and a rain shower so it was extra heaven for her. The... More

This is the second time I stayed for business. Since their rates are often high and in my view over priced, I would like to stay here more but it's hard to justify. I did have a great room again, enjoyed drinks on the patio, and had a wonderful breakfast. The neighborhood is okay but just a little removed from... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice over the past couple of years and we plan to visit again for a weekend away. We enjoy staying at boutique hotels and this one rivals any in other cities that we've stayed in (on the east and west coasts.) The service is fantastic. The decor is very unique, but tasteful. We...

We choose this boutique hotel to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was perfect. We had an alcove corner room which was quite beautiful. Large bathroom.with fabulous shower. They wrote Happy Birthday on the floor and sent complimentary beer and popcorn to our room. Great staff....truly a unique experience!! :-) :-) :-) :-)

We stayed here for the first time last weekend with our dog (they are beyond dog friendly). We enjoyed this hip spot and touring the districts nearby and riverfront walk. All the staff (especially Kelsey who met us on check-in and was a huge help with our stay) were very friendly, very attentive. Brunch was delicious. Outdoor bar/lounge was very... More

I did not stay at this hotel, but attended a baby shower in "The Library". Food and drink were catered by the hotel for a lovely Saturday brunch. Best bacon ever. And pretty good eggs benedict too. The overall style of the hotel and the rooms have a boutique atmosphere, having been crafted out of an old warehouse. Certainly on... More

Arrived with my wife after we both spent a long hot day on motorcycles, and were welcomed at the desk with a iced rum punch -- YUM. Cut the thirst. Everyone was very courteous and professional.

For those that love their bikes and love a really high design masculine hotel experience - the Iron Horse is for you. Loved it. Favorite was the band and darts in the outdoor bar and the sensational cocktails and comics in the main bar. Overlooks the iconic Harley Davidson Museum.
