The Iron Horse Hotel: former mattress factory-turned biker-boutique hotel. Attentive and friendly staff, spacious & comfortable rooms, quiet, cool, and calming. Room features nice balance of furniture, comfy (maybe too soft for me) mattress, stunning in-room bar. I didn't partake, but was impressed by the wide selection of in-room food & beverages, including nice wines, beer, and Patron tequila. Great...

I stayed one night while in town visiting friends. The web site pictures are accurate. The overall vibe of the place is energetic and cool. Rooms are excellent and very quiet. All the staff in the evening were friendly and helpful. My rating is just short of excellent only because of my breakfast experience. I waited patiently for a waiter,...

Stayed at the Iron Horse for three nights. The character and decor of the hotel are great, and the rooms are classy while still being down-to-earth. The bed and sheets were amazingly comfortable, the staff was always friendly and helpful, and the fitness center was great in the mornings. It's a short cab ride to downtown, and the walk from...

The Iron Horse Hotel hardly needs another great review, but I can't resist. The hotel is beautifully turned out with amazing style that's never stuffy or off-putting. You feel at home right away. Of course, the incredibly friendly staff has a lot to do with that. My room was amazing, the shower had a terrific rain head, the bed was...

Snagged a last minute reservation for the Iron Horse Hotel. This hotel was full when I attempted to book online via multiple booking sites. Called the hotel direct and spoke with Mark who could not have been more accommodating booking my room and a couples massage. It is hard to find such good customer service.... so glad I am staying...
