Milwaukee, WI 53202
WHO: Located in downtown Milwaukee, just steps from the Midwest Airlines
Convention Center and the new Harley-Davidson Museum, The Iron
Horse Hotel will offer a blend of upscale business services and,
unlike any other premium hotel in the country, special amenities
for riders such as secured covered motorcycle parking, rag bins, an
on-site bike wash, packed saddle bag lunches, road trip maps and
in-room storage areas for boots, helmets and heavy riding leathers.
Architecturally, The Iron Horse Hotel will be an incomparable
property with interiors that capture the American Industrial era.
The six-story building’s distinct features of post and beam
construction, exposed brick walls and iron details are being
preserved and enhanced by soft finishes and a warm color palette.
As a result, the 100-year-old warehouse will be transformed into a
modern 102-room hotel relevant for today’s savvy business traveler,
bike enthusiasts and discriminating leisure traveler.
