In 2008, Dixon opened a first of its kind luxury boutique hotel in downtown Milwaukee. The Iron Horse Hotel is a premier property catering to both business and leisure travelers. By transforming a 200-year old building into a sophisticated urban hotel, The Iron Horse Hotel fulfilled the growing demand for experiential hotels and the need for additional rooms generated by its neighbor, the Harley-Davidson Museum. Unlike any modern luxury hotel today, this brand new concept pairs high-end accommodations with special amenities for motorcycle enthusiasts. The stunning design, unique concept, quality Food & Beverage, level of service and amenities have made The Iron Horse Hotel a continuing success and gained the attention and reverence of both Milwaukee locals and national and international industry experts.
