Reviewed 26 January 2013

We live in Milwaukee, but really enjoyed a weekend at the Iron Horse. We had a corner room with lots of windows on two sides of the room - worth the extra money. Quiet, romantic, spotless. The room was unique and very well-decorated - with great atmosphere. Loved the shower - we're very tall and enjoyed the rain shower and...

This is my 2nd stay at this hotel and each time has been fantastic. Everything from the decor to the friendliness and very helpful staff (if you need other downtown arrangements) made the weekend fly by. Although I haven't had a chance to dine at the Smyth, the Branded was an awesome place to hang out and have a few...

Loved the hotel! Although I was there for a Harley function and appreciated all the motorcycle features, one does not need to be a motorcycle buff to appreciate it. The lobby staff were very pleasant to deal with, as were the restaurant and bar staff. I LOVED the room - very different, high ceiling and SUPER comfy bed! (see photos)...

Thank you so much for writing a review about your stay with us. You are absolutely right in saying that you do not have to be a motorcycle buff to appreciate the hotel. If you should ever have to come back to Milwaukee for another Harley Event or just for a visit, we would love to have you back!

Wow! We flew in from the Caymans after 9pm and stayed here overnight. What a cool and reasonably priced hotel. The bar scene was hopping and made us forget we left tropical breezes for sub-zero ones. The room we had reminded me of a loft style condo. Fully stocked bar, snacks, and extras!

From the arty decor to the exposed brick and beam of this converted warehouse to the flawless service and the lavish rooms this is every bit as good as reviews suggest. A funky, trendy hotel that makes a business trip memorable but does all the basic hotel stuff very well. Lovely rooms, great service, good food from a nice restaurant...

For my husband's birthday, I surprised him with a trip to Milwaukee, staying at the Iron Horse. Although the location is not ideal, the hotel itself is beautiful and interesting. It is by far the most luxurious hotel in Milwaukee--we have stayed at most of the well reviewed hotels in downtown Milwaukee, and I can say without a doubt that...

Since my daughter and husband lived in Milwaukee, we have been able to enjoy this hotel when we go to visit. We love the uniqueness of it.

I realize my overall score does not correlate with the rest of my ratings. Here is why...we thought we were in for a "special" experience with our first trip to the Iron Horse hotel...the place is really uniquely and neatly decorated, and it has a great bar/restaurant/lobby scene with a very welcoming staff. The rooms are really nice too, but...

Amazing vibe, amazing crowd, great location, best service I've ever received in a hotel. Best to valet park. Everything is nearby, including the casino. This is not a chain hotel, and completely unexpected.
