Some good friends had their small, intimate wedding in the Iron Horse's library room. They were able to secure a block rate for friends and family, so we decided to take advantage of the discount and make a romantic weekend out of it. Having adopted a new puppy, we took him along also. What a great experience! The rooms are...

Our first time at the Iron Horse Hotel in Milwaukee. It isn't in the downtown area but just a couple blocks from the Harley Davidson Museum. The Iron Horse Hotel is very hip and cool in its design and welcomes not only bikers and dogs but ordinary people like us too! We were offered complimentary sangria upon check-in, what a...

We loved everything about this property. The library, the reasonably priced drinks in the room, the beds, the AC, the location - everything was good. We DID not like the parking situation which is basically do valet at $25 a day or keep parking the car on the side of the road and get ticketed/towed.

We were excited about our stay at the Iron Horse based on reviews, but it exceeded our expectations. Everything is meticulously maintained, service everywhere is excellent. We really enjoyed the restaurant and the bar both for food and excellent drinks. Eric made a great Cosmo! Stayed in a king room and had plenty of space. Almost had one complaint about...

We stayed at the Iron Horse on May 4th to celebrate our anniversary. They were sold out of King standard rooms, so we booked a Creme City Studio. While the room was unique and very nice, it didn't seem any larger than a standard room. Upon arrival, there was a HUGE Derby party going on that took over the entire...

A nice and fun hotel. Easy to get to the 3rd Ward for great dining and drink options. The room design is unique with wood beam ceilings and great lighting.

My wife and I live one hour north of the Iron Horse Hotel and we stay personally many times per year just to get away. We love the location as much as the hotel itself being in the 3rd Ward area.

Loved this place! We booked the Pfister but at the last minute changed to the Iron Horse. Upon entry you get a great feeling of the history of the building, which melds well with the hip nature of the hotel. Our corner room was large, and overlooked the city. The black slate tile in the room contrasted well with the...

The hotel is nice and refreshing. Ate at the bar early since I was on eastern time. By the time I finished the place was pretty crowded. My only complaint with the rooms would be that they are kind of dark. The lighting is not all that great, but fits with the theme of the hotel. The people at the...
