Where I stayed
Iron Horse Hotel Milwaukee
Read my review - 5/5 stars

I simply can't rave enough about this hotel. It's swish, swanky, amped and edgy. It's a boutique hotel, but that doesn't mean bikers are ordering 'Lemon Drops' and 'Wine Spritzers' - the staff are all genuine and the hotel vibe supports the local economy with as much local beer (craft and small breweries), local produce (cheese, curds) and snags (bratz etc) as the menu can hold.

It's designed for bikers but anybody who appreciates a good machine will love staying here - food is fantastic, drink prices are very reasonable and the staff are amazing. We had an awesome chat with Ben, a Boston native who now lives in Milwaukee - he was Rugby mad and was also a pretty good player from all accounts.... Cliffy and I were happy to keep hearing his Rugby (Union) stories as he kept supplying us with free/very cheap beer. Great arvo had by us.

To top it off the hotel was also hosting 'Bike Night' - kinda like a 'Bike Love-In" - obviously the H-D Museum was hosting Bike Night for Harleys, but the hotel was hosting Bike Night for Ducatis...... what an awesome sight, some of the best race machines around. But Bike Night is also for everyone, so all sorts of bikes from early Honda's to a swag of Harley's were all there. Bikers, good vibes and fun people - that's what's all about.

Big ride tomorrow, so quiet night tonight I think! We'll see......
