Iron Horse Hotel is a transformed 100-year old warehouse that stands tall as Milwaukee’s premier industrial bike centric dream. 

The Setting

A 4-star boutique hotel that used to be a warehouse? Iron Horse Hotel has set a high standard with its classy historicism and luxury, promising an old town Milwaukee experience. Set deep in the heart of Milwaukee, Iron Horse is adjacent to many cultural epicenters and embraces all that is Milwaukee – from the cuisine to its homage to the motorcycle culture that permeates through the city. Also offering a wide range of amenities like a spa, fitness center, and multiple high-end eateries, the hotel is pet-friendly and dedicated to making your furry friend feel just as at home as you do.

Sleep and Sanctuary

The Iron Horse Hotel's accommodations reflects an authentic Milwaukee that is featured through the 100 loft-style guest rooms. Each room is touted as oversized by industry standards features a pleasant mix of modern décor, exposed brick, and large windows. Also outfitted with contemporary furnishings, walk-in showers, and, for the leisure traveler and corporate individual alike,  free high-speed internet and a cozy wooden desk.

Eat. Pray. Eat.

Offering cuisine inspired by the spirit of old Milwaukee, the Iron Horse Hotel focuses on transforming high-quality ingredients into unique and colorful dishes. Here, the cuisine is crafted by season with carefully selected ingredients from the abundance of Wisconsin and the Midwest. Food allergy or gluten intolerance? The masterful chefs can provide alternatives to suit any dietary need.

  • Smyth - With plates that highlight the quality and balance of ingredients, Smyth's specialities range from soups and salads to seafood dishes. All ingredients are locally sourced when available, like the wild-caught salmon served with lentils and dried tomato.
  • Branded - The contemporary décor seem to eloquently pair with the cocktails and bar food that Branded has to offer. With old-school cocktails like the “old-fashioned”, a whiskey based concoction, Branded's resident mixologists pour some of Milwaukee’s finest beverages. For food, opt for the curry with cauliflower and raita sauce!
  • The Library - An actual library, this collaborative workspace welcomes all from business meetings or those seeking to curl into a nook and catch up on some reading. Cocktails and coffees welcome!
  • The Yard - An adventurous venue underneath the Sixth Street Viaduct, the Yard is the Iron Horse's hotel feature (and pet-friendly!) outdoor patio dining area. Feel free to indulge in a cocktail or pizza from a traditional wood-burning oven while you take in the colorful overhead ambiance. Try the classic flatbread –you won't be disappointed.
The Art of De-stressing

The Iron Horse Hotel helps you stay active and mindful during your travels with access to a 24-hour fitness facility, running paths on the grounds, and readily available spa services.

  • 24-Hour Fitness Facility - Get your sweat on at any hour of the day in Iron Horse's fully equipped fitness center featuring treadmills, elliptical trainers, stair-climbers, punching bags, and resistance equipment.
  • Spa Treatments - Relax and unwind between meetings or recharge after a long day out on the town with Iron Horse's luxurious spa treatments. Treatment options include hot stone massage, deep-tissue massage, and an ultra-hydration wrap. If you must choose only one, the hot stone massage is a truly unforgettable experience.
  • Pet Pampering - Forget the days of having to say goodbye to your pets before you leave for a trip. Iron Horse welcomes dogs of all sizes, even you Beethoven. In room, you'll find a “doggy dining menu”, too. Your furry companion as also welcome to walk the hotel grounds with you, permitted they are on leash!
