Beyond our expectations. From the moment you walk through the doors to the time you leave, you will be amazed. The staff is so friendly, the rooms are funky and the drinks are refreshing (especially in the Yard). Will be back fore sure!

My husband and I stayed at the Iron Horse for two nights while we were in town for our friends' wedding. We thought the hotel was absolutely amazing!

So our stay began with Valet parking service. We met Cortez who packed our bags onto the baggage cart then took us up to our room and was sure we did not have to do a thing to get settled. Cortez did it all for us. After such a wonderful experience we went back agan about 3 weeks later. Again,...

We love the Iron Horse. We had a short stay and arrived a Friday night around 9 PM and there was not any parking within five blocks. The area around the hotel doesn't look the greatest and they do offer valet parking which is nice but costs $25.00. It would be nice if they had parking for guests of the...

Thank you for posting a review. I am so sorry that you were not able to find parking around the hotel. It seems that more and more people are coming to the 5th Ward, where we are located, because of the restaurants, breweries and creamery opening up. With our patio, The Yard, open and all of these great new places...

My stay was very brief but pleasurable. Had an outstanding cut of filet mignon delivered by room service. Bathrooms are very cool, as was the entire room. Never got to hear the train, or maybe I slept through it. Very friendly, helpful staff. I would definitely stay here again.

We invited friends along to stay here for a visit to Summerfest and all were really impressed. This is a hotel unlike any we've stayed in, very unusual and interesting decor, modern yet warm and comfortable feeling. The staff is outstanding in the best sense of Midwestern hospitality. The rooms are really different and the best word to describe them...

Thank you for choosing to stay with us during Summerfest. It is such a great time in Milwaukee to have people locally and nationally come to enjoy the world's largest outdoor music festival. Our showers are very "sexy" and couples love them but we know that some people may not want the silouhette glass so we do have rooms without...

We stayed here for 2 nights with my parent so my husband and Dad could spend a day at the Harley Museum. We could not have asked for a more perfect location with the hotel situated across a small bridge from the Museum. The hotel itself is unique and amazing. Being a converted factory means the rooms are huge and...
