When you become a tourist in your own home town, you gotta ask yourself; "Are you just cheap, or is it an issue of time?" For my wife and I, it's the latter. She's going to give back 11 days of vacation this year to her employer, and I will have taken less than 2 weeks of total time away...

Went for an overnight getaway from Chicago. The hotel is very inviting and sexy. We loved the ambiance of the room and also enjoyed lounging for a while in the bar. Bed was ok (a little soft), shower head was loose, but everything else was great. Would definitely recommend a stay.

Its rare to find a hotel that makes you stop and admire it for it's 'personality'. So many times they're the same carbon copy but Iron Horse truly makes you stop. The lobby alone with it's rustic and yet modern hip design lets you know you're in an unique place and the front staff just reinforces that you're going to...

Very nice hotel - fun decor, bar, restaurant. Staff were great - very accommodating. Liked the bowl of dog biscuits and the chalk board with each dogs name on it. Only stayed one night - can't speak to the surrounding area and/or activities Get the Wisconsin breakfast at Smyth - 3 scrambled eggs with sausage, potatoes and toast :)

I am no biker, although I have biker boots, but this is a fun place. Pet friendly and close to everything in Milwaukee, this hotel is a hoot.

Dear RJK_Chicago, Thank you for your thoughtful review! I truly appreciate your comments, as we sure do love all of our guests!

We loved the lobby and library, the beds you could sink into and not want to come out for days, the quiet (despite a lively bar and restaurant scene), and the pleasant welcome we received on a Saturday night stay. The only reasons for 4 rather than 5 stars is that the water pressure in the showers is faint. This...

The Iron Horse Hotel is a boutique hotel with special attention placed on decor and detail. The rooms are large, fabulous beds and bedding, come with robes in the bathroom, has large standup shower (no bathtubs that I'm aware of - so might be a problem for families with small children), ceilings are rough finished to allow the character of...
