The Iron Horse is a great facility, unfortunately currently being let down by a lack of qualified, experienced staff. I understand some of that is due to challenges with ramping up staffing levels post-pandemic, but I can assure you the prices do not reflect the lack of service. So I find it hard to cut them too much slack for that. As I said, the hotel itself is great. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The atmosphere throughout has a very cool vibe. In normal times, there would be an outside bar, inside restaurant called ASH and inside bar with pool table. Most of the time the inside bar and pool table were closed and in darkness, even when the hotel was full. If we wanted to have a drink and unwind in the evening, we had to go out to the outdoor bar to order, then we could not get back in the same doors we just came through. We would have to basically walk out to the parking lot and back through the main entrance to the hotel to get back inside with our drinks in-hand. When we asked the restaurant manager if he though that was odd, he looked at us blankly and said "no", and walked off. We dined in ASH on 1 night only. Firstly, we were told even though we were staying in the hotel, we could not dine there without a reservation. After some common sense finally prevailed, our dining experience unfortunately didn't get much better. Drinks took as long as the food to arrive, and when they did they were wrong. And the bone-in rib eye was the worst steak of our trip... disappointing. All in all, I'd like to think the Iron Horse could be a lot better than what we saw. I'd consider going back, but not for a while by which time they hopefully have a chance to get their staffing right.

8,8 Very Good
Pros:My wife and I stayed at the Iron Horse Hotel for a short weekend getaway from Chicago. We loved the hotel. The food at Smyth was great; don't miss the goat cheese appetizer and pork belly. The bar was also a really nice touch; the decor was all dark leather/wood and the cocktails were great. The staff for the entire hotel were some of the best I have seen and I stay in hotels 3-4 nights a week for business.
Cons:The only reason I gave the hotel 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the dog policy. We live in a high-rise in downtown Chicago that allows dogs, so we weren't expecting to be bothered by a little noise. However, there were multiple occasions when dogs would be crying and howling (most likely from being left alone in an unfamiliar room) early in the morning and late at night. This wasn't the best for our romantic weekend away, but wouldn't stop me from visiting the Iron Horse Hotel in the future.

Pros:I stay in hotels all over the country and this place was one of a kind. If you like motorcycles, staying here is a no brainer. You're a short walk away from the HD Museum and the feel and decor of the hotel has a rugged-modern vibe. I didn't get a chance to hang out at the bar but it looked like like a upbeat scene. Their signature restaurant was excellent.
Cons:That I didn't have my Harley with me!

Pros:comfortable bed and great shower. excellent location for getting about town.
