My husband and I visited this hotel as a belated honeymoon. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. They upgraded our room, left us a personalized message and a gift as well. Every person that we encountered that worked there was amazing. I would like to especially thank Hector Nunez, the general manager, for personally reaching...

We stayed at Iron Horse for one night for our anniversary and it did not disappoint. The staff was wonderful from the time we checked in until our departure. We received a complimentary drink upon our arrival and received a bottle of cava and chocolates in our room to help celebrate which was a nice touch. The location of this...

The Iron Horse sets the bar in hospitality and you won't find a hotel that is better managed or staffed in the entire state. If you're planning a weekend getaway, large dinner party, small wedding or just a holiday brunch--you have to consider the Iron Horse because it will take your breath away. Very pet friendly as well. I had...

Have a great evening. Cocktails and a nice room. Sam took great care of us. Looking forward to coming back. By the way, the Ruben at the bar was not bad at all! At the end of the day I would say this is the boutique hotel with a first class experience!

The staff was amazing and made for a wonderful stay. Free vodka cocktails when we arrived, complementary champagne and chocolates in our room for our anniversary, free ride in their classy Lincoln to and from dinner, and a surprise anniversary greeting. Room is stocked with a broad assortment of drinks and snacks. We have stayed at a lot of hotels...

A great boutique hotel with friendly staff. A nice cocktail when you arrive, pet friendly restaurants in the hotel are good with many options in walking distance. And of course the Harley Davidson Museum. Best location in Milwaukee

I stayed at this fine place many times and was never disappointed: friendly service throughout; spacious, stylish rooms with super comfortable beds and murals by local artist Charles Dwyer; a casual bar with an excellent craft beer selection on tap; a superb fine dining restaurant—what's not to like? The hotel is located in trendy Walker's Point, so there are many...

Quality. High quality. From the room décor to the service at the front desk, from the doorman to the first-level bar - this entire establishment smells upscale and yet casual. A great choice if you have the cash. Location is walking distance, just barely, from Greyhound/Amtrak station.
