Spent one night and will go back. The hotel is a converted industrial building, and the decor reflects that vibe. The lobby displays bygone motorcycles and accessories that are well worth viewing (The hotel is near the Harley-Davidson Museum..a must see in Milwaukee). We enjoyed dinner in the bar. Service everywhere was excellent.

The Iron Horse is a unique boutique hotel, that is fun, rustic, exceptionally creative, and artistic. The food is a surprise and the custom bar cocktails are crazy on the taste buds. I am so happy to be back after so many years. Best Neil

Although the location is not in downtown Milwaukee, it is very close, and offers so much that it is totally worth it.
