Are you one of the 350,000 bike-loving visitors expected each year at the new Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee? Now you can now pull into the museum parking lot with your own bike. The new Iron Horse Hotel, conveniently located in downtown Milwaukee across the river from the museum is geared toward motorcycle enthusiasts like you.
The Iron Horse Hotel offers covered motorcycle parking, rag bins and check-in carts – perfect for transporting saddle bag contents to and from your room. There’s an on-site bike wash and arrangements can be made for on-call bike servicing. They’ll even pack a lunch for your saddle bag, provide Milwaukee ride routes and suggest bike-friendly spots throughout the area.
A tile entrance to each of the 100 oversized loft-style guestrooms features custom hooks for hanging heavy leathers and boot benches made from reclaimed wood from the original building. A comfy pillow-top bed, an all-tile walk-in shower and wall-mounted flat-screen TVs greet road-weary travelers.
While not a themed hotel, the décor of The Iron Horse hotel features subtle references to motorcycle culture, including leather accented by nail head trim, evocative of steel rivets and patterns in the fabric inspired by tattoo art. The entire lobby, a stunning display of American Industrial era architecture, is designed to greet guests whether in high heels or dirty boots. Enjoy a beer or cocktail, grab a bite to eat or check out the views of downtown and the Harley-Davidson Museum. The Yard, the huge outdoor patio offers the perfect gathering place to exchange stories from the day. And there are even rejuvenation spa services to beat tired muscles from a long day on the road.
Adjoining rooms offer even more space for groups and the top-floor Iron Horse Hotel suites, complete with rooftop views of the city, offer an unforgettable stay.
From its location to the jaw-dropping array of amenities, The Iron Horse Hotel offers a truly authentic and memorable experience.
