Excellent Hotel located in a neighborhood with multiple eating and drinking options. Hotel and location are an excellent choice for those couples or singles looking to eat, drink and have a good time. Although I did not bring my dog the hotel and surrounding area appeared to be very accommodating to the K9's.

Simply the best.

You get what you pay for. In the case of The Iron Horse Hotel, the value you get from this hotel is outstanding! Great hotel with excellent, attentive staff. Located 15 minutes from the GMI airport, walking distance to the Third ward, Fiserv Forum (Bucks arena), Marquette University, countless pub's and breweries, and a short drive to Miller Park (brewers baseball). Spacious rooms, great bar and restaurant on property. Directly across the river is the Harley Davidson museum. It's up to you to buy or not buy a bike😁.
