A very nice boutique hotel, with really easy access to the Brewers ballpark. Room was large and comfortable; ours overlooked the railroad, and we heard no noise. I was a bit concerned about noise from rowdy Cubs fans or Harley fanatics, but no issues. We had brunch in the restaurant, high quality ingredients and preparation. Overall, service was excellent throughout... More

We had heard all kings of great things about this hotel before we stayed there and it really fell short. First off the bathroom was not user friendly. The shower had awful water pressure and there wasn't anywhere for a person to hold on. We had our 80 old mother with us and were very worried that she could have... More

Dear Debbie95407, Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to let us know how we are doing. While we pride ourselves on our unique decor and industrial ambiance, it seems we fell short during your stay. I would love to discuss your stay further.

We had a gift card for The Iron Horse, so decided to stay for a night. The room itself was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The hotel staff was helpful, and pleasant. We had a nice time. We stayed on a Saturday and chose the cheapest room package, and we paid slightly over $300. It was nice, but not $300... More

While I am not sure of the relationship between parking structure and hotel, I was "ticketed" in the adjoining private parking structure even though I provide payment proof. They immediately turned it over to a collection agency. I think this represents very poor customer focus

Dear theresah510, I am very sorry for the inconvenience the parking ticket has caused you. Unfortunately, the hotel does not have jurisdiction over the parking structure next door.

The hotel met all our expectations. It is a hotel with soul. What a difference between the Journeyman (Kimpton hotel). That hotel is nice and new but with NO character. The staff in the Iron Horse was amazing, genuine and caring. I am a runner and asked the front desk to tell me where to run. Kelsey was amazing telling... More

Start to finish the best guest experience I have had with any hotel.

Fantastic hotel with really friendly service. There are two bars in the hotel- one on an outdoor patio. Even so, the room was very quiet and peaceful. The location is also very convenient. Be aware that the hotel is dog friendly.
