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,... More

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.

Snagged a last minute reservation for the Iron Horse Hotel. This hotel was full when I attempted to book online via multiple booking sites.

Most hotels feel large and overwhelming, but this hotel has all the amenities you would expect from a large chain hotel, but it has all the personal feel that you want when you come to a place that is not familiar, or just a "stay-cation".
