What I liked:

They had us in a room with 1 king bed when i had booked a room with 2 queen beds!!! They immediately upgraded us to a suite that had 1 king bed and a pull out couch. even though the pull out couch wash;'t ideal I appreciated the upgrade!!!!

What the hotel could do better:

The brunch in Smyth and the regular breakfast in the Library were a bit confusing. The Library served much earlier but brunch in the Smyth started at 10 and they used the same hostess for both places. We wanted the brunch but it was a bit confusing as to where we should go while waiting for it to start.

Hotel Description

If you’re in the upscale Midwestern Harley-riding demographic that The Iron Horse Hotel is aimed at (yes, you read that right) then chances are you already know about it. Not only is it a high-end boutique hotel in a contemporary urban-loft style, which is remarkable enough for Milwaukee as it is, but it’s certainly the world’s first such hotel with a motorcycling theme — and it’s definitely no coincidence that the Harley-Davidson museum is just across the street.

It’s not as odd as it sounds. Riders find covered bike parking, plenty of storage space for leathers and helmets, and a general ruggedness to the interiors — no fear of kicking over something delicate with a boot-shod foot. Bike agnostics, however, still benefit from the Iron Horse’s unique personality, and the rooms are as plush as any: 42-inch LCD televisions, spa-like bathrooms, and in-room bars stocked with full-size wine bottles.

A small yet well-equipped gym and spa complete the package, along with a classic oak-paneled bar and grill and a fine contemporary American restaurant. A scary biker bar it certainly isn’t — just a stylish and luxurious hotel that’s bike-friendly to boot.
