My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Iron Horse. Everything about the place was classy. From the valet attendant to the desk receptionist. It is a very clean and beautiful hotel. The decor is truly amazing. Will stay there again and have told friends about it. You will not be disappointed.

There is a level of pride that all of us have at the hotel where we want to make sure our guests appreciate all of the details that went into the building. Most days after a guest checks in the Front Desk Agent will walk through the lobby to make sure all of the pillows are straight and candles lit....

This hotel is ranked one of the top boutique hotels in the country. It is worth the visit. Very industrial feeling. Great service and pet friendly. I highly recommend staying here when you visit Milwaukee.

We came to Mikwaukee to pick up a puppy. The hotel was wonderful - staff was friendly and attentive, food was good, room was beautiful. The only thing wrong with the room was bad water pressure in the shower. Everything else was perfect. We ordered a Wisconsin cheese and fruit platter for arrival and it came to the room 5...

Had a wonderful experience in your hotel. Friendly staff, chic design, and wonderful on-site dining options. Everyone was accommodating, from valet to room service.

We enjoy visiting Milwaukee and really love this hotel. The staff have been really excellent each time we've visited and they really have gone above and beyond the call of duty. Our room has always been excellent and at check in we were greeted with a sincere smile and welcome.

Everyone of our associates was hired because of their personailities. We can teach people how to make a drink or check a guest in but we can't teach someone to care. Thank you for your comments and we hope to have you stay with us again!

The rooms are spacious and really well appointed with high quality furniture. A mix of modern and antique furnishings in an old restored building is my favorite design. Teriffic staff. The Iron Horse has to be one of the top hotels in the United States and at reasonable rates.

There are so many pieces throughout the hotel that are at least 100 years old. The pool table is 100 years old and was completely rebuilt, the mirror in Branded was originally a window from a cathedral in Pennsylvania that is 120 years old. All of these pieces fit perfectly with the modern decor. Thank you for the review!
