About The Iron Horse Hotel

The Iron Horse Hotel is a historic wedding venue located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This hotel, which once served as a warehouse, dates back to 1907. It stands proud right in the city’s historic warehouse district. While it is over 100 years old, the building has been renovated and transformed over the years into the chic space it is today. However, touches like the exposed ceilings and brick add a warm and historic feel. Renovations were finished in 2008, and this modern luxury boutique hotel began opening its doors to couples seeking a unique space in which to exchange their vows while embracing a very authentic Milwaukee experience.

Facilities and Capacity
Weddings of all sizes and styles can be accommodated at the Iron Horse Hotel. In fact, there are spaces both indoors and outdoors that can be used for hosting all stages of the wedding such as the engagement party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception. Elopements are also welcomed as well. For couples planning a more intimate gathering, there is a Pergola site available on the property. Couples and guests will love all the unique decor touches found throughout this space ranging from the custom artwork to the wrought iron chandeliers. Another space with unique touches is the Gallery. In this space, you will find original fire doors and more original artwork. On your big day, the Lobby area can also be used for smaller gatherings or cocktail parties. For a breath of fresh air, your wedding party can step out into the lounge and bar.

    When we walked into the Iron Horse Hotel we knew we had to have our wedding ceremony there! It is an absolutely beautiful venue and since we had a winter wedding we needed a place our guests would enjoy hanging out in for a couple hours (and our guests raved about how neat it was!). We held our ceremony in The Gallery downstairs, which was very modern but had great ambiance once we added some soft globe lights strung along the ceiling, which the hotel provided. We rented the room for 2 hours (3o min. ceremony) and I thought it was very reasonably priced compared to some of the other venues we looked at. The hotel staff took care of chair setup and take down and someone was on hand at all times if we needed anything. Jessica, who I worked with to coordinate everything, was wonderful to work with. She was very promt with responses to emails and made sure everything went smoothly. I stayed at the hotel the night before the wedding in one of the suites and the rooms are stunning! With our wedding block we were able to reserve rooms for our guests at a competitive price compared to other nice hotels in the area. We also loved that we were able to do photos with our wedding party throughout the hotel, which lead to some really beautiful shots! Brunch at Smyth is a must the day after!! I would highly recommend The Iron Horse for anyone who wants a unique venue!

    Jessica Lange provided such great service in planning our wedding.
    The hotel itself was perfect for us. Everything was perfect.
    If you're getting married in Milwaukee, the outdoor space, "The Yard" at The Iron Horse is a must see.

    We had our reception in the Library at the Iron Horse and it was absolutely perfect. The provided everything I needed: decor, linen, bartender,bar, food, and great seating/table options. They asked me what I wanted and made sure it happened. After the reception we all went to the yard which was wonderful for a hot summer night.
