Stayed for one night and loved the bedroom which had a boutique/industrial style to it. The toiletries in the bathroom were lovely. Public areas were a little gloomy and service at breakfast was very slow.

I was overnight in Milwaukee and decided to stay at the Iron Horse. There is only valet parking and the nightly guest rate is about $20. Unlimited in and out though. Staff was very welcoming and I noticed they had a personalized bowl with treats at the front desk for guests with dogs. The sign by the bowl actually had...

The Perlick systems (mini refrigerators) are pretty big. I am not surprised that they were large enough to hold what may be the largest bottle of Naked Green Machine I have ever seen. Thank you so much and come see us again soon!

Accomodating. Friendly. Easy. Words I would use to describe the staff and the stay at Iron Horse. We had the Sunday Sounds package. After arrival, we went out to "The Yard" and listened to a great band. Our package came with a bucket of four local bottled beers. Fun! The room is also cool. Nice touches and unique finishes. Our...

Sunday Sounds in the Yard is one of my favorite things that we do at the hotel. The day you were with us was the day the Blue Ribbon Band was playing and they are fantastic. Thank you so much for the review!

The Iron Horse Hotel is definitely higher class. You definitely get what you pay for - everything is modern, sleek and clean. The shampoo and conditioner samples in the shower were amazing! The front desk attendants were extremely friendly and helpful. We traveled with our dog Frankie - and truly, the Iron Horse Hotel has dog friendly staff. However, the...

You are so right when you say we really are pet friendly. I have said it before and I think it is worth saying it again, if you bring your pup with you be prepared to be stopped multiple times by our staff because they are going to want to pet them. Thank you so much for the review.

I organized a two day meeting at the Iron Horse and everyone had a great time. The hotel is very unique.....and beautiful. The manager, Janine was extremely pleasant and helpful to deal with. My attendees have decided this was a great venue for meetings and plan to use the venue in the future.

My wife, adult children and I used the past weekend to visit Milwaukee for the first time. The Iron Horse made our getaway a special weekend we will always remember.

Turning this former mattress factory (1907) into a boutique luxury hotel was a great idea and a substantial investment. Wonderful attention to historic detail and creating a unique, biker/pet friendly hotel. One of the things we noticed immediately was the attentiveness of the staff. Always there to help and always helpful. We were there to see the HD museum but...

Nice hotel, it just was not a perfect stay. The location of the hotel is off the beaten path, you have to walk about a half mile through a not very nice area to get to the Public Market. They also require you valet your car, which we were not aware of when we booked the reservation. The room had...

I am so sorry to hear that you had anything less than an amazing stay with us and I am equally sorry that we did not point you in the direction of our amazing neighbors. The 5th Ward, where we are located, has 7 of the top 15 restaurants in the city, bars, nightclubs, a distillery and an urban creamery....

Coming to this hotel is like visiting a friend on an upscale ranch in the west. Relaxed and casual but offering a high level of hospitality and accomodations. The hotel is a former mattress factory and it doesn't try to hide that. They have incorporated their prior history into the current building. The hotel is also within a block of...

Was greeted by super friendly staff! The hotel has a cool and funky vibe! Great inviting and sophisticated lobby in dark woods, leather and Harley on display. My room was large, had fab decor and was immaculate. Bathroom had ample space and ample counter space, lovely robe and superb shower and linens. Two thumbs way up!
