Quality. High quality. From the room décor to the service at the front desk, from the doorman to the first-level bar - this entire establishment smells upscale and yet casual. A great choice if you have the cash. Location is walking distance, just barely, from Greyhound/Amtrak station.

I'm running a little behind on posting my reviews. My stay at the Iron House took place in March 2016, but it's still fresh in my memory as a really delightful experience. It's easy to see why this is the #1 hotel in Milwaukee. The service is exceptional from the moment you walk in the door. We were quickly escorted...

We've now stayed here four times. Love the vibe of this hotel. Big exposed beams and pipes. Solidly made furniture. Great beds and bathrooms. This only thing we didn't like are the bath products which have chemicals to avoid in them and are made in China. Last time we were here they had different products and I hope this fine...

What a fantastic hotel, loved every decor detail. Nice ambience & great food. Comfortable rooms, very spacious bathroom. They welcome dogs & are very proud of it. Your pet will have their name on a title board waiting for them with water & treats. Very well located, nice restaurants & bars walking distance.

Probably one of the coolest hotels I've ever stayed in and I've stayed in some pretty cool hotels. They are dog friendly and even cater to them. Welcoming them by name in the lobby on a chalkboard stating "VIP Pooches" with a water dish. Dogs were allowed to hang out in common areas. The hotel itself was absolutely phenomenal. Modern,...

I've worked in Milwaukee, driving for Über, picking up and dropping off people at the Iron horse. I never gave it much attention, until my girlfriend said she wanted to stay there. We looked it up and thought it looked great. What an understatement! This place is great! Great food made on-site, cozy bar with a pool table, great room...

My amazing experience began with my first impression: Maddie. She was the receptionist who helped me with my booking. What patience! I was disappointed that she would not be working when we arrived, as you never know what the "next" person is like. Well...they were all great!
