Where to Stay in Milwaukee: The Iron Horse Hotel

Posted by on May 2, 2015 in Traveling

The great city of Milwaukee prides itself on a lot of things – one of which is its culturally and industrially rich history. Should you find yourself popping by for a visit or a vacation, it is recommended that you get the full Milwaukee experience. The Iron Horse Hotel is one such location – and is, coincidentally, a great place to stay.

Built in the early 1900s, it was a warehouse that was then converted in order to accommodate 100 loft-style guest rooms in 2005. The hotel got its name thanks to its location as it used to be a shipping facility that was near a railroad. Native Americans were known to refer to the trains as an “iron horse”, thereby giving the hotel its name that is reflective of both its location as well as its history. Close to sights like the Harley museum as well as Walker Point, it is definitely a great location if you’re in town for a bit of sightseeing. If you’re on business, then the locations nearby allow for you to have a little bit of leisure and relaxation during your down time.

The living room-style lobby invites a totally chilled out, friendly atmosphere. Inviting and friendly, from the welcoming staff that is dedicated to customer service as well the facilities and amenities that are offered, the Iron Horse Hotel is definitely one for the books. After all, who doesn’t like a boutique hotel? Vintage, beautiful, and with a killer view in whatever room you’re booked in, the Iron Horse Hotel has it all.
