The Iron Horse Hotel
Ranked #3 of 56 Hotels in Milwaukee
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This last weekend when I stayed at the iron horse hotel, I found my visit very pleasing. The room service was simply fabulous and when I came back from a long and tiring day of sight seeing I was pleasantly surprised to find that my room was spotless. In my conclusion the Milwaukee iron horse hotel was overall the second best hotel in the state (the first being obviously Baker House) was quite enjoyable and I would love to go back.

My girlfriend and I stayed here and the service was 2nd to none. From the time we pulled our car in valet to when we picked our car up, we were treated as if we were their #1 priority. The lobby area is clean, comforting, and warm and when you get to your room you feel as though for a night or two that you are royalty. The dining and room service was outstanding and we have recommended this hotel to all of our friends and out of town family. If you want a rustic luxurious experience The Iron Horse Hotel is Milwaukee's finest. Any room has a great view and you are minutes away from the Historic Third Ward of Milwaukee. Treat yourself and a guest and when you do, choose Iron Horse.

Altough the Hotel is very cool and unique the service was not a 4 star rating. Our room was never cleaned, serviced or restocked despite asking 2 times durning the day for at least clean towels to be delivered. We ended up having to walk to the front desk to obtain new towel. The restarant, again while very unique and different the food was average and the waitress could tell us nothing about the menu, and when we walked into the bar 2 staff just looked up from what they were doing and then went back to looking at what they were doing we had to ask them if they could take our order and we were only 4 of 6 people in the bar area.

Historic, chic, and a great energy prevails throughout Milwaukee's Iron Horse Hotel. It's not cheap but the property is five stars all around. The rooms are ultra comfortable, the bar area is lively, and the restaurant fabulous. Treat yourself to this place, this is one you'll remember for a long time.

Room Tip: Play a game off pool, downstairs. The best table I've ever played.

I saw that you suggested to our other guests that they try our pool table while they are with us. The pool table is 100+years old and comes from Madison, WI. The owner of the hotel found it and had it rebuilt to the way it originally was. It is such a cool piece and I am so happy you appreciated it. Thank you for the review and we hope to see you again!

The Iron Horse Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is a perfect place for a sophisticated person who likes luxurious beds & great food in a unique historic building that was redesigned perfectly. The rooms are spacious and very quiet.....and the spaces available for social functions are intimate yet not stuffy. And hey, bring your Harley cause its right next door to the incredible Harley Museum.

Room Tip: Ask for the "see through shower rooms" for some real fun!

The Iron Horse is a great hotel. We arrived the Monday before Thanksgiving, and this was the 1st hotel stay for our 2 yo Leo - a 90 lb German Shepherd. Very dog friendly. Leo's name on the pet guest board, treats and water by the elevator.

Large, spacious room - lots of places to put your stuff. Room looked toward Downtown. Nice view.

Very close to downtown. Third Ward is a 5-7 minute walk. Easy Interstate access. We could be to my sister's house in Whitefish Bay in 10 minutes.

The staff is great. Very friendly and accommodating. Had a great breakfast each morning. Had snacks and beer in the bar. Leo even joined us for a beer in the once (he didn't drink - just people watched). Every experience a good one.

Truly 5 star hotel and 5 star experience. And very price competitive. I've paid more for a tired room in a Marriott or Hyatt.

Only place to stay in Milwaukee.

This hotel is where IT is at. The lobby, rooms, bar and restaurant are were decorated super cool and stylish. The mural on the wall in the room was a nice touch and I love the dog friendly touch. I will definitely stay here again.
