The Iron Horse Hotel is a boutique hotel with many antique finishing throughout. The rooms are large, with comfortable beds, large bathrooms and lots of natural lighting.

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.
