Beloit’s heritage is anchored by the Merrill & Houston Ironworks, the 1858 foundry that supported the town for more than a century. The Ironworks Hotel pays homage to that booming era: The walls are adorned with historic photos from the city, and the decor features exposed brick, dark woodwork and high-quality repurposed items from local industries. The hotel’s 54 guestrooms and 36 suites have a rustic appeal, with mod cons such as Keurig coffeemakers, iHome docking stations and flat-screen TVs. The suites are spacious, with kingsize beds, two-sided gas fireplaces and leather couches. When hunger strikes, head to the Merrill & Houston Steak Joint for eats such as center cut pork loin chops with roasted apple and mushrooms finished with bourbon; the adjacent bar was constructed from wood reclaimed from a building on the property of the old foundry. And then work off all those calories in the on-site fitness center.
In the Area
Located in downtown Beloit, the hotel is a stroll from the city’s crown jewel, Riverside Park, a verdant 23-acre stretch on the banks of the Rock River where frequent art and music events take place. See a game at the minor league ballpark of the Beloit Snappers or venture over to the Angel Museum (which houses the world’s largest collection of angels) as well as the campus and museums of Beloit College.
How to Get There
This is our second visit to the Ironworks. The first visit was just passing through on our way north. This trip was to the Ironworks Hotel and Beloit for a getaway anniversary weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
Business trip to Beloit and was suggested that I stay at the Ironworks. Very clean and comfortable hotel with a rustic theme. The rooms were well put together. Mine was a King room with a fireplace, giant soaker tub, and a comfy leather couch. I slept great.
Onsite, they also have a steakhouse, which was very memorable. I was not expecting this nice of a spot on my visit to Beloit.
The Iron Works Inn located in downtown Beloit, Wisconsin is a small luxury hotel with spacious rooms and a rugged oak and wrought iron decor throughout the hotel. Formerly called the Beloit Inn, it's the same hotel with even better appeal. Comfortable and quiet.
