one night get away in Milwaukee to celebrate my wife's birthday turned into an all night fest of listening to our neighbors talk. Our neighbors were having a reunion of sorts, catching up on all that was happening i their lives, and we know it all. They were not in any way loud, it was just that the walls on...

One of the coolest hotels Ive ever stayed at! We were on business in Milwaukee and decided to stay here and we certainly did not regret it. Apparently Milwaukee is like a ghost town in January so we felt like we had the hotel to ourselves, but I would definitely come back in the summer! Everything about the hotel was...

Great hotel located near the Walker's point section of Milwaukee. This was my second visit to the Iron Horse and it remains top-notch. Clean, very spacious rooms, comfortable beds, excellent restaurant and very friendly staff. Highly recommend!

The Iron Horse Hotel was our destination as a pair of mother/daughters gathered to celebrate our friendship. We stayed one night at the Iron Horse, and shared a double/queen room on the fifth floor. The hotel is dark and moody, but I loved it! The room was very hip and clean. My only criticism of the room was a funky...

Stayed here for a wedding. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. The walk in shower is very pleasing. Rooms offer good views of downtown and Miller Park. Hotel offers local complimentary shuttle. The only drawback is that there is no pool.

Dear Peter S., Thank you very much for staying with us! I am so happy to hear you had a great time at the wedding! The Milwaukee City Skyline is definitely my favorite view from our guest rooms as well. The complimentary Lincoln Hotel car is a guest favorite, and the front desk is always willing to tour around Milwaukee...

This was the first time staying at this boutique style hotel. I am guessing it was a renovated building of some sort. Liked the welcoming lobby and bar. Walking distance to some microbrews in the area. There is no parking lot so you can valet, but we found plenty of free parking on the side streets if you don't mind...

From the 'what can we do to make you happy' text messages before our arrival, to the two quick phone calls right after checkout (to alert us I'd left an item behind in the room), the Iron Horse delivered five star service throughout our two-night stay. The decor is warehouse-loft all the way, with exposed brick, timbers and dark, moody...

Dear SummersInAntioch, Wow! What an awesome review! Thank you very much for staying with us, and for letting us know how your stay was. The building was constructed in 1907 and was originally a mattress factory, called Berger Mattress. We strive to reflect the industrial and edgy Milwaukee culture in the building and decor.

We were kept up all night by the noise from a roaring train and the smell of dog urine wafting throughout the hallways. Bartenders and service ignored us despite our willingness to spend. Nothing like what was depicted on their website. Would not recommend.
