Good times at a great hotel .
The rooms are a great size and perfect for a girls weekend or family stay. We were able to eat at the bar and the food was perfect.

Chicago feel without the Chicago prices
We are from Chicago and enjoy spending weekends in Milwaukee. We’ve stayed at a bunch of places but keep coming back to the Iron Horse. It’s a little pricier than the chain hotels but it’s worth it. They are really building up the area. There’s a distillery across the street and a few breweries within walking distance. In addition to that there’s so much to do and just about everything is a $6 cab ride from the hotel. If you haven’t gone to Milwaukee and if you haven’t stayed at the Iron Horse... do yourself the favor!!

Iron horse is Iron clad
Great hotel in a very cool part of the city. Lots to do around the hotel, and in as well. The staff was amazing and the rooms were really neat. Will defiantly stay here again.

Comfortable and friendly
We had a wonderful stay at the Iron Horse. The room was so chic, clean, and comfortable. In room dining was prompt and delicious, much better than standard room service food. My only complaint is that the food menus in the bar and restaurant are a bit heavy. I would have liked some lighter salads or entree options. Also the specialty drinks at the bar were a bit sugary. Overall we really enjoyed the service and comfort of the Iron Horse and had a really relaxing weekend.
