Housed in a century-old factory, the Iron Horse Hotel has become a focal point in Milwaukee's hip Walkers Point neighborhood, offering a great patio, an upscale eatery, and a popular lobby bar. The hotel is often packed with travelers immersing themselves in a historic atmosphere and motorcyclists partaking on an adventure.
The Iron Horse Hotel is located in the industrial sections of Walkers Point and near some of the city’s hottest restaurants. The Harley-Davidson Museum is across the river, Potawatomi Hotel and Casino is a five-minute drive, and cultural destinations like the Milwaukee Art Museum and Henry W. Maier Festival Park is less than ten minutes away.
The Iron Horse offers several indoor and outdoor dining options, a popular cocktail bar, seasonal events, and a dog-walking service for guests who want to bring their dogs on the road with them. The Smyth restaurant on-site is more upscale, while Branded is a popular cocktail bar that serves classic bar food. The Yard is a casual and seasonal outdoor eatery that serves delicious food like sandwiches and wood-fired pizzas. The hotel also features on-call massage services and 24-hour fitness center.
The 100 spacious, loft-style rooms offer a refined industrial appeal, with exposed brick, local artwork, work desks, and rainfall showers. The layouts of the rooms vary, but all are spacious and equipped with luxuries such as sitting areas, work desks, flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and leather swivel chairs. Although not included, guest can request stocked mini-bars, Keurig’s, bottles or wine, and snack baskets.

Cons:The only reason I gave the hotel 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the dog policy. We live in a high-rise in downtown Chicago that allows dogs, so we weren't expecting to be bothered by a little noise. However, there were multiple occasions when dogs would be crying and howling (most likely from being left alone in an unfamiliar room) early in the morning and late at night. This wasn't the best for our romantic weekend away, but wouldn't stop me from visiting the Iron Horse Hotel in the future.
