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
I love this place. You feel special from the time you walk in the door. Service and food is outstanding. The room very comfortable with a nice touch of luxury. The location right on the river is so relaxing. I highly recommend and will return!
Good hotel, bed was a little uncomfortable but the staff was very friendly. The hotel bar gets pretty crowded, doesn't even need a lot of people to do that it's more of a layout problem. Quaint location.
Comfortable and quiet stay in this tastefully decorated Boutique hotel in Beloit. Really enjoyed the mixture of iron and wood used for the interior design of the hotel. My room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. I could open the windows for fresh air. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel has plenty of parking spaces in front of the hotel in case you are driving. Breakfast service could be improved. I was not a fan of room service for breakfast and free coffee at the reception thing – did not make any sense. I think for such a beautiful hotel a proper breakfast service is a must.
We enjoyed our room, it was very comfortable and spacious. The staff is very friendly. It is within walking distance to town and Beloit College. The steak restaurant- Merrill and Houston is excellent!!
I took my team there for a business Holiday celebration and the experience was great for all of us! The décor in the hotel was awesome, the food at the banquet was absolutely amazing. Good for group events and for overnight for anyone who wants to stay in this amazing hotel! :)
