My sons and I stayed here after a horrific experience at the Hyatt earlier in the week. The Ironhorse was a more than welcome retreat! I was not familiar with the hotel but found it to be an amazing nugget. As a Marquette parent, I will post this on the recommend site for great places to stay - contrary to...

I was traveling on business to Milwaukee and booked a room at the Iron Horse thinking it would be a hotel as usual....NOT! What a wonderful surprise - this is now my favorite hotel - the customer service is spotless and impeccable! We've even modeled a t-shirt after the same that the bar staff wear for our District employees!! You...

We decided to stay in Milwaukee for the Rob Thomas concert and since Milwaukee doesn't have a Four Seasons, we decided to give the Iron Horse a try. Forget Four Seasons!

I did not expect much going into this hotel and was truly blown away by the atmosphere inside. The lobby is quite sublime and has a unique feel to it like a hunting lodge. The room was huge and had some colorful touches to the interior design. The breakfast was awesome though they do not have a buffet. ( A...

We escaped to Milwaukee a couple of weeks ago and selected the Iron Horse Hotel from their web site pictures. We were not disappointed. This hotel is industrial chic personified. It has a wonderfully warm feel. Exposed heavy timber construction, fun textural art, perfectly lit and very boutique artifacts throughout that and interest and warmth to the spaces. We had...

The exposed timber beams are found throughout the hotel and are original to the building. The age of the wood is around 300 years and they add so much character to the hotel. Thank you for mentioning them in your review!

I've stayed at the Iron Horse several times for business trips to Milwaukee, and it is one of my all time favorite hotels.
