Cool hotel with excellent staff. Great rooms, very good breakfast, lunch and dinner. Only downside might be noise from the trains, but that did not bother us at all (and there are complimentary earplugs in the rooms). Highly recommended.

My daughter and son-in-law had opted for the Iron Horse for their wedding ceremony and reception and it was absolutely outstanding! They were wonderful to work with and the food was outstanding for a party of 119 people. Everyone was kind and courteous and the dinner was excellent. My husband and I also booked a room for the evening and they are ulta-modern, clean and very comfortable. If you are looking for a place to have a gathering with no worries, this is the place to go!

My husband and I stayed and the Iron Horse for two nights and also held an event in the "Library" room. The hotel is beautiful - very unique decor that wowed all our guests. The staff was wonderful from the valets to the people at the front desk to the staff that coordinated our event. Our room had a great view of the city of Milwaukee and the trains that went by were charming; the noise did not bother us a bit. The event was beautiful - I highly recommend the Library room; we had around 150 guests - the food was great and the service was spot on. Overall, the hotel is a very classy, high-end hotel and we were proud to hold our event there. I would highly recommend!!

This place absolutely rocks! I tend to stay in Marriott's or Hilton's when I am on the road and this was an absolute blessing in disguise. Who knew such a cool hotel could be located in such an 'uncool' town.
The hotel lobby/bar are outstanding. Loud music and great art work set the stage for the rest of the hotel. The hotel rooms are amazing. If you are looking for a soft bed and a superb night sleep, look no further.
I had one of my best sleeps ever in a hotel at the Iron Horse. Their attention to detail is what blew me away. They had my favorite Kureg coffee flavor - outstanding!
The showers are super modern with no gross shower curtain.

What more can I say. If you are looking for a contemporary hotel and don't mind paying a small premium to stay in a more upscale hotel, treat yourself to the Iron Horse Hotel. You won't regret it.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear to be super cool.

I stayed at the Iron Horse this past weekend for a bachelorette party and it was absolutely amazing. The design was unique, rooms spacious, unbelievable amenities and the staff was genuinely excited to greet and assist us. Though we were just a group of girls staying for a night of fun, they treated us like we were the richest people in the place.

I've stayed at several hotels in Milwaukee and none even come close to comparing with the Iron Horse. A wonderful experience that I'm looking forward to enjoying again!

Room Tip: Just ask - the staff was so accomodating!

This hotel was beautiful and so worth the money! Go online and sign up for the iron horse free desire club and you will get a discount as well. When I checked in they brought a complementary drink up to my room, and were so nice our entire stay! Very sheik, modern and comfortable place, I would stay there again!
