My husband and I needed to catch early flight the next day and so for our anniversary we chose Iron Horse! After walking to dinner we came back to champagne and a sweet note that was congratulating us on our anniversary. It was perfect!

Cool Hotel

Very cool hotel. We spent quite a bit of time wandering around the hotel, enjoying the details. Everyone on staff was professional while being very friendly, approachable & laid back so service was great, the place was very clean, the downtown location was great & the beds were super comfortable. We will be back.

Sunday mimosas & relaxation
Reviewed 1 week ago

Spent a mid-day Sunday outside in "The Yard" at the Iron Horse hotel in Milwaukee. The setting was breathtaking! A great variety of comfortable seating. Beautiful hanging plants & outdoor drapery divided the space into multiple shared & personal spaces. Endless Mimosas were served by amazingly pleasant and accommodating staff, (shout-out to Ava for her outstanding attentiveness!). We were not rushed to leave but instead we're allowed to enjoy a leisurely pace as we relaxed in the beautiful surroundings.

We decided to try brunch at the Hotel! The hotel is lovely and Chris at the bar was awesome. Bottomless Mimosas did not disappoint!!!! I ordered the burger and fries which were delicious. My friend ordered the grits which were equally delicious! It’s a must if you are visiting Milwaukee!!
