This hotel is very beautiful, accommodating and very friendly! The interior design of the hotel is very nice and there are beautiful and intricate details all throughout the building. My husband and I were not planning on taking our dog but our plans changed and thankfully this hotel takes dogs of any size or breed. The hotel staff is very...

This 100-year old warehouse converted into a hotel was a unique experience. The room was like none I have ever stayed in. I loved all the details- The classy bathroom, comfy bed, original brick walls, wall mural/ art, and lighting options. We didn't think the train was loud and had a perfect night's sleep. I’d stay here again in a...

There are many good things to say about this hotel - the great patio area for drinks (has live music), the interesting decor in the lobby (dark with many candles in mason jars), the warm welcoming reception we received, good food, and extremely clean and spacious rooms with a sleek "old warehouse" atmosphere. The hotel is a bit out of...

We stayed at the Iron Horse with the Tick Tock package and it was great. Wonderful, friendly customer service from the time we drove up until we left. The hotel itself is lovely; classy but not stuffy and great fun vibe. We had a corner room and loved it: spacious, modern and comfy. Our package included the room for 24...

Second visit to Iron Horse: We opted for the Sunday Sounds deal ($219.00 plus taxes) off the website which included room, breakfast and bucket of beer during outdoor live music. We arrived too late to enjoy the music so cannot comment on that. Check in smooth and efficient. Off street parking available so skip the $25.00 valet charge, yay! Our...

Absolutely our favorite hotel we've ever stayed in. I found this hotel online, and booked it without knowing anyone that had ever stayed there and without talking to the hotel. The East Coast needs one hotel modeled after this hotel. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, luxurious, and immaculate. I have never stayed in a hotel with such a clean bathroom....

Loved it. Stayed with our two boys (ages 12 and 16) and had a ball. Great staff, cool rooms and bar outside was excellent. We like to walk so location was no problem but be aware that to get to the shops, etc. is at least 10 mins and Marquette is a good 20.

This is a great hotel. Very groovy look to it. Very cool lobby. Freindly and helpful staff. The rooms are off the hook. Lots of room, stocked bar, great shower. My lock didn't work on my room so they worked on it for about 30 minutes, then took care of me for the trouble. I will be back

Some good friends had their small, intimate wedding in the Iron Horse's library room. They were able to secure a block rate for friends and family, so we decided to take advantage of the discount and make a romantic weekend out of it. Having adopted a new puppy, we took him along also. What a great experience! The rooms are...
