The Iron Horse Hotel, Milwaukee
Favorite Milwaukee hotel
This is a great hotel in an up and coming neighborhood. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Plenty of drawer/closet space for clothes. Good wifi in the room though it is public so using a VPN is advisable. Bathroom is also spacious with large shower area. The lobby, bar and restaurant are also very good. Bartenders fixed my wife a special drink that she requested without any second thoughts. The bar's food menu is similar to the restaurant. We had scallops and duck and both were delicious. There's an outdoor patio open during warmer months that we've never been able to enjoy. You can find parking on streets nearby, 2-3 blocks away, if you don't want to pay for valet parking. There is a great jazz bar 3 blocks away, Caroline's.

Needs improvements
This was my third stay at Iron Horse. However, this time I notice a lot of problems with over all management of the place. Staff as usual could not be nicer and more friendly. But, room service never picks up the phone calls. U have to leave a massage and then no one calls u back. At Sunday’s check out there was no hot water, I’m sorry but that is unexpectable. And my final observation is, someone should wash the windows they are nasty. I really like this property but this time they came way short of expectations.
