Simply put ... one of the top hotels I have ever stayed in. When you visit Milwaukee, spend the extra money and treat yourself with a night or two at the Iron Horse Hotel. Pros: customer service is 5 star, friendly and helpful, willing to go the extra mile bar is well stocked with fine "browns" for the sophisticated drinkers... More

This hotel is absolutely AMAZING. From the moment you walk in the door you can’t help but forget about everything else! The staff is phenomenal and the service they provide is top notch! Even though we are only a couple hours away, my husband and I “vacation” to Milwaukee just to stay at the Iron Horse. By far my favorite... More

So many of our guests live very close to the hotel and are looking to have a special night or 2 away without having to go far. We do our best to make sure that they feel like they are on a vacation far from home. Thank you for the review! More

This is definitely our favorite hotel of all time. We discovered it a few years ago, and now we try to make it back every year because we love it so much. The decor is so cool--part modern, part rustic, but all luxurious. The calarmari app at the bar downstairs was delicious. As was our room service breakfast--everything was hot,... More

A truly special experience. Beautiful hotel with special design details and vibe. Just south of downtown in a warehouse district (technically Walker's Point). Uber cool. But what sets it apart was the service, the quality of the food, the comfort of the room. A dreary, cold, grey, rainy weekend became a special weekend with my fiance as a result. Very... More

I recently stayed at the Iron Horse Hotel and found it to be an incredibly satisfying place! The ambiance, the history, the service and the crowd that hangs there is outstanding. I wish all hotels put this amount of thought into making their patrons satisfied. This place mixes motorcycle attitude along with class. I can't wait to go back!

Wish I had read the April 9th review a bit earlier. We decided to spend the weekend in Milwaukee to celebrate my husband's birthday. The hotel was wonderful, but we thought that the $25 overnight parking fee was pricy and parked on the street just a short distance away. We came out Sun morning to find our window smashed (along...

In my opinion this hotel is exactly the perfect mix of luxury and comfort. We are not bikers and I thought we might feel out of place but that was not the case at all.

This place is wonderful - the feel of a B&B in a city hotel. It is located a short walk from the historic 3rd Ward (itself a few blocks south of downtown). On this trip we hit Alterra Coffee and had a very nice dinner at Swig but we have eaten at the hotel and really enjoyed it. (Trout!) Beans... More
