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.

The Iron Horse is a great facility, unfortunately currently being let down by a lack of qualified, experienced staff. I understand some of that is due to challenges with ramping up staffing levels post-pandemic, but I can assure you the prices do not reflect the lack of service. So I find it hard to cut them too much slack for that. As I said, the hotel itself is great. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The atmosphere throughout has a very cool vibe. In normal times, there would be an outside bar, inside restaurant called ASH and inside bar with pool table. Most of the time the inside bar and pool table were closed and in darkness, even when the hotel was full. If we wanted to have a drink and unwind in the evening, we had to go out to the outdoor bar to order, then we could not get back in the same doors we just came through. We would have to basically walk out to the parking lot and back through the main entrance to the hotel to get back inside with our drinks in-hand. When we asked the restaurant manager if he though that was odd, he looked at us blankly and said "no", and walked off. We dined in ASH on 1 night only. Firstly, we were told even though we were staying in the hotel, we could not dine there without a reservation. After some common sense finally prevailed, our dining experience unfortunately didn't get much better. Drinks took as long as the food to arrive, and when they did they were wrong. And the bone-in rib eye was the worst steak of our trip... disappointing. All in all, I'd like to think the Iron Horse could be a lot better than what we saw. I'd consider going back, but not for a while by which time they hopefully have a chance to get their staffing right.
