The Iron Horse Hotel
500 W. Florida St., Walker's Point
A warehouse-turned-hotel, the Iron Horse has a hundred loft-like rooms—some with city views and others overlooking “The Yard,” the Iron Horse’s outdoor patio and lounge. The “premium” version of the loft is on the top floor, with twelve-foot ceilings, and showcases the building’s charming exposed brick walls and industrial beams. (The other prime room to request is the corner alcove king.) For a good hotel option in the third ward, we like Kimpton’s new Journeyman, which is unique enough to feel like it’s independently owned.
