Do not hesitate to book the Iron Horse Hotel. In a homogenized hotel landscape -- rescue me, please, from the Marriott family of properties -- this creative space is quite the find. The staff is friendly, the food is top-notch, the beer (naturally) is superb, and the special touches abound. And this is before you get to the room. I...

My daughter who resides in Milwaukee gifted us an overnight stay at the Iron Horse. This was not our first time being there, but it was a first for staying overnight. From the front desk check-in to checking-out the next day, the entire staff was very prompt, attentive, and everyone had pleasing attitudes. The atmosphere and decor is perfect! Relaxed,...

My wife and were so impressed with the decor, upscale biker friendly. We have never experienced a staff so friendly or helpful at any other hotel. The stays are pricey but you are rewarded with impeccable service and amenities. Great hotel restaurant and bar with a hip vibe.

The atmosphere is so relaxing. Whether it be in the lobby, bar, library or your room the Iron Horse gets the gold medal for comfort, cleanliness and oustanding customer service. From the valets, to the wait staff, to the front desk reps you become tired of seeing everyone smile the entire time of your stay. There is warmth in this...

Our family is from the Milwaukee area, but moved to Florida five years ago. A business trip brought us back and we stayed at the Iron Horse. The architecture is amazing and the rooms are beautifully appointed, but that is only the beginning. We returned for Christmas this year and chose to stay again. The library fireplace was a popular...

I absolutely love this place. I love all Tablet properties, in general, and this one is a true gem.
