The Iron Horse Hotel

From helping develop the overall concept and business plan for The Iron Horse Hotel to designing its imagery, messaging, and even interiors and environmental branding, Company B offers this incredible hotel as its case study for “total brand development.” Transforming a 100-year-old historic warehouse into one of the nation’s top independent boutique hotels is just the beginning of the story.

keeping it fresh

Despite being the long-standing market leader, this nationally award-winning hotel doesn’t rest on its laurels. In 2013, when Company B suggested a brand refresh to keep the property relevant, we set out to capture the stories about the hotel and its guests. The new website and “SideCar” blog and email marketing reflect these experiences.

By sharing the stories that the guests have shared with the world, Company B has given The Iron Horse Hotel a way of capturing first-hand and real-time experience of this celebrated hotel. Harnessing video, location-based Instagram check ins and Twitter hashtags is all a part of staying current for our clients.

Sharing isn’t enough – creating the scene is part of what we do every day. Whether perennial favorites or fresh new promos, The Iron Horse Hotel’s parties and special events remain the place to be in Milwaukee.
